(AP Photo/Jim Mone)ExpandMINNEAPOLIS — There is a recipe for winning baseball that uses ingredients the Angels already have in the cupboard.The Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 on Monday night, showing what can be accomplished with a deep lineup and a strong bullpen.Shohei Ohtani’s first homer of the year and Tommy La Stella’s surprising 10th homer provided the bulk of the offense on a night the Angels had 15 hits, including 12 against Twins ace José Berrios.It was only good enough for a one-run lead after Tyler Skaggs had labored through five innings, leaving the bullpen to maneuver through 12 outs. “We’re dangerous, one through nine,” La Stella said. “I think in the beginning we had some bad luck, but hopefully it’s starting to turn for us.”La Stella, who also had three hits, belted his homer just in time for Skaggs to be the pitcher of record, even though he’d already thrown his last pitch of the night.Overall, it took Skaggs 101 pitches to get through five innings. He walked three, including two of the first three batters of the game, and he started only 11 of 24 hitters with a strike.“I’ve got to cut down on the walks,” Skaggs said. “The home runs today, they hit some bad pitches. But the team picked me up.”He also got bailed out by Brian Goodwin making a catch with his back to the fence to end the fourth, saving at least two runs.“Luckily, our offense and our bullpen are our strength right now,” Skaggs said. “As a starting staff we need to pick it up, and we’re going to.” Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield center_img Then the Angels’ hitters took over.In the third, Berrios left a pitch over the middle and Ohtani crushed it 429 feet to left-center, knocking it off the scoreboard above the bullpens. The two-run homer put the Angels up 3-2.An Albert Pujols opposite-field single – one his three hits – pushed the lead to 4-2.After Skaggs gave up the lead by allowing a Marwin Gonzalez homer in the fifth, La Stella restored the Angels’ lead with an opposite-field homer against Berrios in the sixth.The first opposite-field homer of La Stella’s career continued his surprising season.“What we heard is he gives you a professional at-bat, but not a lot of power,” Ausmus said. “What we’ve seen is a professional at-bat, he gets his hits and he has hit homers.”Mike Trout also had three hits against Berrios, as he continues to pull out of his uncharacteristic slow stretch.Related Articles Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Justin Anderson struck out the side in the sixth, Ty Buttrey worked two innings, and then Hansel Robles closed it out, netting the Angels an encouraging victory.“That’s an outstanding job,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. “Buttrey got through two innings. Anderson looked really sharp and Robles closed it out. They did an excellent, excellent job.”Buttrey said the relievers fed off each other to produce the perfect night.“I think everyone is raising the bar for the next guy,” Buttrey said. “Ando did a great job and I wanted to continue the pattern and Robles did the same thing. … Ando comes in and strikes out the side, and I’m trying to strike out the side, and Robles is too.”They did so against the Twins (25-15), who came into the game with baseball’s best winning percentage, largely because of a powerful offense. They showed that power in the first inning when Jorge Polanco belted a two-run homer, one of two two-run homers allowed by Skaggs.last_img read more
