Twins rookie Fernando Romero allowed four hits and one run over five innings in a no-decision as Minnesota lost 2-1 to the Angels in Anaheim.

Eddie Rosario led off the 12th with an infield single against right-hander Noe Ramirez, who was pitching his third inning of relief, and Mitch Garver shot a run-scoring double past diving third baseman Zack Cozart and into the left-field corner.

The Twins got on the scoreboard first, scoring three runs in the third off Angels starter Nick Tropeano, who was coming off his best performance of the season. Minnesota then strung together three consecutive hits, including an RBI double by Byron Buxton and an RBI single by Joe Mauer. "There's a lot of ways that can go wrong".

The Angels were 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position and left 16 runners on base, the most in a game since playing 19 innings against Boston on August 9, 2014.

Sidearm-throwing Trevor Hildenberger opened the bottom of the 11th by hitting Cozart with a pitch. "He's got pitches. He could get the breaking ball over, and he got guys to chase it". He ended up pinch-hitting for Kole Calhoun in the seventh inning and struck out looking against Ryan Pressly in the Angels' 2-1 victory. Castro was placed on the 10-day disabled list last Saturday. Scioscia said Middleton had "elbow discomfort" and will undergo an MRI exam Monday. He struck out two and made 87 pitches.
