"I just have to keep my head up and I think work extra for my next start".

"I have obviously have my own plan to get him out", Mejia said through an interpreter.

Sano, who had missed the previous two games because of an illness, hit a long homer to center off former Twins prospect Alex Meyer in the second to give the Twins a 1-0 lead. "We got a break" on the dropped pop up, Molitor said.

The Angels scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth, two coming in on Danny Espinosa's home run.

However, in the bottom of the eighth, Taylor Rogers wasn't so lucky as he gave up a solo home run to Calhoun, his second of the day, to make it 2-1 going into the ninth. The only thing he failed to predict was the Twins rallying in the ninth inning to beat the Angels in Anaheim, California. The Halos' flamethrower must have been all out of fuel, and by the time he was pulled from the game, he had given up SEVEN RUNS already while only getting 13 outs on the board.

The Minnesota Twins did something on Thursday night you don't see every night: They turned a triple play. Gibson started the season 0-4 and an ERA that ballooned to 8.62, but allowed a season-low two earned runs in his last start against Tampa Bay. He allowed six hits in a season-high 5 2/3 innings while throwing 98 pitches - also a season-high. "Seems like I'm hitting balls right at people, so it's nice to get a couple tonight".

Le Drian says he expects France to play a crucial role in a "complex, fragile, unstable global situation". He remains one of the longest-running mayors in France , but has never held a top government post.

"That's huge for a starting pitcher", Gibson said. Reliever Huston Street returned from his rehab assignment with right triceps tendinitis. He started for their triple-A Salt Lake team Friday, going 0 for 2 with a run.

It was far too little, too late for the Angels, who couldn't figure out Gibson.

With outfielders Mike Trout and Cameron Maybin on the disabled list, the Angels signed veteran Michael Bourn, 34, to a minor-league contract.

Angels: RHP Matt Shoemaker will try to bounce back from one of his worst starts in weeks.
