Twins Vs. Angels Final Score: Carl Pavano Touched Up In 6-2 Loss

After one of their best games of the season on Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins found themselves back in the loser's column on Wednesday night, falling in the series finale to the Los Angeles Angels, 6-2.

Carl Pavano had his shortest outing this year in the loss, only lasting four innings while giving up 10 hits and five runs. Ervin Santana went seven-plus for the Angels in his second straight quality start.

The Angels racked up 14 hits, including seven from the top of the Angels order. Yes, even some contributions from Albert Pujols, who had just his second two-hit game of the season and improved his batting average to .198.

The Twins' runs batted in came off the bats of Danny Valencia (0-4) and Josh Willingham (2-4).

The Twins continue their nine-game homestand on Thursday when they start a four-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays.
