Angels win again behind Skaggs
The Los Angeles Angels posted their sixth straight win on Saturday, besting the Minnesota Twins 2-1 behind home runs by Ian Kinsler and Albert Pujols.
It was a long outing for both teams in Minnesota, as a four-hour rain delay stretched the game out.
Tyler Skaggs (5-4) got the win, going seven innings and giving up five hits and one run. He walked one and struck out eight.
For Pujols, it was his 623rd career home run, and his 1,951st RBI, tying him with Stan Musial for sixth on the all-time list.
“Albert has the utmost respect for what Stan Musial was about,” Scioscia said. “Not only on the field, but he was a man of great character off the field. I know those two had a chance to spend a lot of time together when he was in St. Louis. He respects his legacy tremendously, so for him to be in the same sentence as Stan Musial, I know it’s a nice feeling for Albert.”
The Angels are now 37-28 and still in third place in the American League West. The Halos are 3.5 games behind the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros, who are virtually tied for first.
On Sunday the Angels will send Nick Tropeano (3-3) to the mound as starter, while the Twins will counter with Fernando Romero (3-3).
