Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani lead Angels over Twins

MINNEAPOLIS — Mike Trout had three hits, including his 37th homer of the season, and the Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 10-3 on Sunday.

Trout also doubled twice, walked and scored three runs. Shohei Ohtani had two hits, including an RBI single in the ninth that keyed a five-run rally that broke open the game.

The Angels jumped on Twins starter Dylan Bundy (8-8) early, as Trout doubled and Shohei singled in the first. Trout scored on a throwing error, and Matt Thaiss drove in Ohtani with a single.

Trout hit a solo homer in the third, a long line drive to left field off Bundy’s sinker. Luis Rengifo added a two-run single in the fourth that ended Bundy’s outing.

José Suarez (7-8) earned the win, allowing two runs on eight hits with six strikeouts over 5-2/3 innings.
