Twins spoil Angels try for first place

Posted:

Michael Cuddyer and Delmon Young each homered twice and the Minnesota Twins beat the Los Angeles Angels 11-4 Wednesday night.

Cuddyer's grand slam in the fifth inning broke a 4-all tie and Jason Kubel also went deep to give the Twins a season-high five home runs.

Peter Bourjos homered for the Angels, who squandered a chance to tie Texas for the AL West lead for the first time since July 5 after the Rangers lost at Detroit. Manager Mike Scioscia returned to the dugout after serving a one-game suspension.
