Trevor Plouffe drove in three including the go-ahead run in the seventh inning as the Twins doubled up the Angels 6-3 at Target Field. The teams were playing a makeup game from an April 17th rainout. Josmil Pinto went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored for the Twins, who snapped a franchise-record tying 10-game home losing streak set back in 1957 while the team was in Washington. Casey Fien picked up the win in relief and Glen Perkins earned his 33rd save. Kole Calhoun had three hits and an RBI, while Josh Hamilton added two hits and drove in a run for the Halos, who have lost two in-a-row after a three-game winning streak. Cory Rasmus suffered his first career loss.
