Garver's 12th inning double propels Twins to win over Angels

Garver's 12th inning double propels Twins to win over Angels

He then adds, "But to me, with what he does on the mound and with the bat, [Ohtani is] probably the best player in the world".

Japanese right-hander Shohei Ohtani, off to an impressive Major League Baseball start as a pitcher and slugger, struck out 11 Sunday as the Los Angeles Angels beat visiting Minnesota 2-1. "His splitter was as good as we've seen it, and he got some big outs with his fastball".

Ohtani was dominant again in his sixth big-league start, but the Angels' two-way sensation was denied his fourth win when he left after walking Logan Morrison on nine pitches in the seventh.

Minnesota got to starter Nick Tropeano with three runs in the third, as Byron Buxton, Joe Mauer and Brian Dozier each had an RBI.

Ohtani is 3-1 with a 3.58 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. Cozart went to third on a wild pitch, and after a walk to Mike Trout, scored when Justin Upton grounded into a force play.

Trout didn't start for the first time this season, but the two-time AL MVP struck out looking as a pinch-hitter with two runners on in the seventh inning.

Simmons cut the margin to 3-2 in the sixth and Upton got his second RBI in the seventh, driving in Calhoun to tie the score at 3. "They made pitches when they had to and they held on". The 23-year-old Ohtani gave up three hits over 6 1/3 innings against the Twins. Scioscia said Middleton had "elbow discomfort" and will undergo an MRI exam Monday.

Maldonado had two hits and a walk for the Angels, scoring the game's first run on Upton's groundout.

The Angels were 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position and left 16 runners on base, the most in a game since playing 19 innings against Boston on August 9, 2014.
