Garver's RBI double in 12th helps Twins beat Angels 5-3

Allow this Shohei Ohtani dinger to remind you that this is still very much happening

Romero, 23, is the seventh pitcher in Major League Baseball history to pitch at least five shutout innings with five or more strikeouts in each of his first two big-league starts. The 23-year-old rookie has not allowed a run in 11 2/3 innings, the second-longest scoreless streak by a Twins pitcher to start his career since 1974.

He averages more than a strikeout per inning (32 in 26⅓). Middleton only returned from the disabled list last Thursday after sitting out with elbow inflammation.

Trevor Hildenberger (1-0) earned the win over Ramirez (1-2). Cozart went to third on a wild pitch, and after a walk to Mike Trout, scored when Justin Upton grounded into a force play.

One out later, Garver scored on a single by Gregorio Petit, who played for the Angels two seasons ago, to make it 5-3.

Fulham 2-0 Derby County (Agg 2-1)
There's a steely streak running through this Rams side, though, and we fancy them to do just about enough to get through to the big one.

Morrison got two hits and that key walk against Ohtani while the rest of Minnesota's lineup struggled mightily against the Japanese star. 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. He gave up two runs on three hits and four walks in six innings. He was the only Twins starter who didn't strike out at least once. Cozart had a pair of singles before stepping to the dish with a runner on second and one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Upton went 2 for 5, but did not hit a home run for the fifth consecutive game, which would have tied the team record set by Bobby Bonds from August 2-7, 1977.

Twins: Jake Odorizzi (3-2, 3.83 ERA) takes the mound when they return home for a makeup game against Seattle. The right-hander has 38 strikeouts in 42 1/3 innings this season. The Halos won two of three against their AL West rivals last month in Houston.
