If you couldn’t stay awake for the Twins 12 innings nail-biter against the Angels, you missed a good one. Minnesota and Los Angeles played well past midnight, and in the end the Twins were able to sneak out the 2-1 win to grab a share of the wild card lead and pull within a half game of the White Sox in the Division. After falling behind early following a Mark Texiera home run in the first, the Twins used a a fifth inning Carlos Gomez single that scored Nick Punto to tie the game at 1-1. Then there was no scoring for six innings, until Denard Span laced a RBI single to left. Nick Punto scores the winning run after getting aboard with a leadoff triple that former Twin Torii Hunter misplayed in center field. Minnesota tries to get two in a row from the AL best team tonight in L.A. They are in the midst of a 14 game road trip.
