Minneapolis (AP) Pinch-hitter Chris Iannetta's sacrifice fly in the ninth inning lifted the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday night. David Freese broke out of an 0-for-21 slump with two doubles and an RBI, and Howie Kendrick and Erick Aybar each had two hits and an RBI to help the angels bounce back from a two-game sweep in Houston. Huston street earned his 36th save in 38 chances to give the angels a five-game lead in the AL West over Oakland. Eduardo Nunez hit a three-run homer and Kyle Gibson shrugged off a poor fourth inning to go seven for the Twins. But all-star closer Glen Perkins (3-2) gave up a leadoff double to Freese to start the ninth and couldn't strand him.
