Ohtani pitches well but fails to get 4th win

But Eddie Rosario led off with an infield single and then scored on Garvers double.

Angels: RHP Shohei Ohtani (3-1, 4.10) will make his first start at home since April 17, when he left early because of a blister after giving up three runs in two innings against Boston.

The 23-year-old former Nippon Ham Fighters star in the Japan League used his deceptive slider to induce eight of the 20 swinging strikes he managed with impressive work from his fastball and breaking ball as well.

Still, naysayers are already becoming increasingly hard to locate when the subject turns to the Angels' youthful two-way phenom, Shohei Ohtani.

Angels reliever Cam Bedrosian surrendered singles to Robbie Grossman and Joe Mauer as the Twins equalized, but the Angels scored in the bottom of the ninth for the victory.

Back on May 1, Tropeano shut out the Orioles on one hit over 6 1/3 innings. Cozart went to third on a wild pitch, and after a walk to Mike Trout, scored when Justin Upton grounded into a force play. Pujols struck out with runners on second and third to end the inning. The 24-16 Angels are one game back from the AL West leading Astros. He struck out six and made 92 pitches. Kole Calhoun walked and reached second on a wild pitch. RHP Parker Bridwell (elbow inflammation) is set to resume throwing, Scioscia said.

Mike Trout, 26, a center fielder with the Los Angeles Angels and a 2009 Millville High School graduate, was the 2014 and 2016 American League Most Valuable Player.

Ohtani is 3-1 with a 3.58 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season.

Maldonado had two hits and a walk for the Angels, scoring the game's first run on Upton's groundout.

Morrison was one of the few Twins to see Ohtani well.
