After dropping the first two games of the weekend series, the Minnesota Twins avoided the sweep by beating the Los Angeles Angels 7-5 Sunday afternoon at Target Field.

Minnesota rookie Jake Cave, who was just called up from the minors yesterday, had three hits including a late inning home run to help ignite the Twins offense. Jake Logan hit a homer for the Twins in the first inning.


Eduardo Escobar doubled twice for the Twins to take over the MLB double lead with a total of 26.

Minnesota starter Fernando Romero pitched five innings, striking out five, giving up 5 hits, hitting two Angels.
