Long Road Trip For Angels Ends With MLB-Best Twins

The Angels end an 11-game, 6,000-mile road trip with a series against baseball’s best team, the Minnesota Twins.

With Kyle Gibson coming off a career start his last time out, look for the Twins to continue their roll on Tuesday.

They’ve given up 10 or more runs in three games on the trip and surrendered five to the hapless Orioles in Sunday’s series finale.

In addition to pitching woes, the Angels still hope to find consistent hitting, other than perennial MVP candidate Mike Trout.

Los Angeles gave him a day off on Sunday, which manager Brad Ausmus said was scheduled.

He felt pain when swinging and missing at a pitch, and he was scheduled for an MRI on Monday.

He’s won three of his last four starts with 28 strikeouts and only three walks to go with his 2.28 ERA.

The Twins were one of the season’s early surprises, while the Angels have been a bit of a letdown.
