In a bit of irony, the Minnesota Twins -- who were no-hit and swept by the Angels last week and had just six hits in the series opener on Monday night -- have used their bats on Tuesday night to end an impressive streak held by the Angels' starting rotation:

Through six innings, the Twins are up 5-0 and have banged out 12 hits. Five hitters have two hits and they're playing without Denard Span, too, who is sitting this one out after running into the wall during Monday night's loss. Danny Valencia and Span's replacement are the only two hitters without a hit.
