Garver's RBI double in 11th helps Twins beat Angels

Mitch Garver watches his RBI-double against the Angels during the 12th inning Saturday

Morrison singled twice off the rookie, while Ohtani allowed just one earned run on three hits and 11 strikeouts in 6.1 innings as the Angels beat the Twins 2-1.

Zach Duke took the loss, allowing a walk-off single to Zack Cozart.

Logan Morrison has seen a lot of talent throughout his eight-year career, but he's never seen anything quite like Shohei Ohtani. Minnesota then strung together three consecutive hits, including an RBI double by Byron Buxton and an RBI single by Joe Mauer.

Mike Trout almost cost the Angels a key run, unwittingly, with his speed and aggressive baserunning in the seventh inning Saturday night, but his Matrix-like elusiveness on a slide into third helped his team pull even with Minnesota.

Overall, the social giant estimated that around 3%-4% of active Facebook accounts on the site during Q1 were still fake. The platform also revealed how much content its automated systems were picking up and how much was reported by users.

The Twins managed two short singles early on, but Ohtani also struck out five straight and nine of 12 batters during the first four innings, with his 99-mph fastball alternating with vicious breaking pitches.

"As advertised", Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said after his club's first look at Ohtani. But Tropeano was on the disabled list the next day because of an inflamed right shoulder. Scioscia said Middleton had "elbow discomfort" and will undergo an MRI exam Monday. Unfortunately, we didn't get that hit here or there when we needed it. He was the only Twins starter who didn't strike out at least once. He struck out two and made 87 pitches.

At the plate, Ohtani has batted.348 with five home runs and 16 runs-batted =-in so far this season in the first slugger-pitcher combination effort since legend Babe Ruth's heyday a century ago. Cozart went to third on a wild pitch, and after a walk to Mike Trout, scored when Justin Upton grounded into a force play. The Gold Glove catcher is 14 for 24 since his 0-for-34 hitless streak ended May 1. The April 8 meeting was postponed by cold.

Angels: Andrew Heaney (1-3, 4.78 ERA) is on the mound for the start of the Houston Astros' first visit to Angel Stadium since winning the World Series.
