Los Angeles Angels vs. Minnesota Twins

Byron Buxton missed the past 21 games for the Twins

Ohtani ended the innings in his first two at-bats against righty Lance Lynn, grounding out in the first and coming up short on a deep fly to left in the third after Justin Upton notched his 10th homer for a 3-1 Angels' lead.

Ohtani appeared as the designated hitter in a game against the Minnesota Twins.

Angels reliever Jose Alvarez (2-0) earned the win over Twins starter Jose Berrios (3-4).

The Angels missed a chance to move a game ahead of the Houston Astros for first place in the AL West, but they are in a much better position than they were at this point past year.

The Twins will send revamped right-hander Kyle Gibson to the mound for the third game of their series against the AL West-leading Angels on Saturday night.

Minnesota went 2-11 in the first 13 games without Buxton, but recovered as of late winning six of its last eight. He posting another quality outing, tossing 6 ⅔ innings of three-run ball, while striking out eight batters on the night. Trout is hitting.326/.452/.681 with 12 home runs, 25 RBIs, 32 runs and seven stolen bases, while Simmons has put up a line of.351/.410/.511 with three homers, 22 RBIs and 24 runs scored.

It was a big night for Kinsler, who has struggled in his first year with Los Angeles after coming to the team in a trade from the Detroit Tigers.

Los Angeles has posted 28.4 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 contests and 30.2 over its last five. Gibson took a no-decision in his last start, as the Twins came back to defeat the White Sox 5-3. The Angels are 5-2 in their last 7 Friday games, 16-5 in their last 21 vs. a team with a losing record and 2-5 in Skaggs' last 7 starts with 5 days of rest.

Twins are 7-2 in Gibsons last 9 road starts. I have to side with the home team here.
