Angels score 5 in the fifth to dump Duffey and Twins in finale


The Los Angeles Angels poured on five runs in the fifth inning on their way to a 10-2 victory over the Twins Wednesday night in Las Angeles.

Twins starter Tyler Duffey (2-6) gave up six runs in 4.1 innings. Things fell apart quickly for Duffey, who started the game with three innings of hitless baseball.

Joe Mauer and Kurt Suzuki knocked in the only Twins runs on the night.

One of the liveliest moments in the game for the Twins was actually when outfielder Byron Buxton retrieved a beach ball that had escaped from the right-center field stands. Buxton attempted to return it to the fans, but that didn't go as planned either.
