When Upton broke the big helmet, Baldelli’s decision was easy to guess.
In fact, the experienced strikers of Los Angeles do not allow the opponent to make very easy choices during a strong start to the season.
“We have a lot of guys who know what they’re doing,” Upton said.
In seventh place, Upton scored his eighth helmet, and ared ared Walsh spent the night at home և three runs from the victory of the “Angels” over the “Twins” (3: 3).

The veteran pipe did not deny that he received any motivation from the Twins’ decision to apply to him.
“I think you have to use a little bit of that,” Upton said. “But this is Mike Ishkhan in front of you, so you have to look forward to it. You have to prepare. ”
Walsh immediately repelled Upton’s shot with his fourth homer in 12 games to start the season.
“I told (Upton) that it was one of the hottest things I’ve ever been on, I was just sitting on the deck,” said Walsh, who also had an early two-part single. “They walk on Trouty, which is understandable. Just Astin makes them pay. … When he hit the ball,: I saw the bat fall և all this, my jaw was on the floor. It was just a shocking moment. “
Mitch Garver doubled the lead, and osh osh Donaldson added a “progressive” single for the Twins, who opened the six-game California swing with a sixth loss in seven games.
Andrew Heany scored the second goal for Los Angeles with two shots, allowing two runs with six shots.
“I felt for the most part that I was in control of the game,” Hini said. “I did a few walks that I was not happy about, but those guys did a couple of double plays with me.”
Indeed, the angels toured four double plays for the first time since April 25, 2013.
Australian left-hander Luis Thorpe hit three times four times for Minnesota in his first start to the season.
“I felt good there, I felt I belonged,” said Thorpe, who visited the Twins’ alternative training site. “(Prince ոհ Shohei Ohtan)’s two hit shots, they have a good squad. You really can’t scare them, or they’re going to beat you. “
The twins chased Heaney and then ran three runs from Aaron Slagers’ three straight shots (1-0), but Los Angeles returned to the lead in the sixth with three straight singles. Ohtan broke his bat before scoring with David Fletcher in the Trout single to leave Randy Dobnak (0-3).
The victory belongs to Aaron Sleggers (1-0).

Willians Astudillo made his eighth start for Minnesota in the second round of his career with a useful figure who played in every position. He retired to the Angels in seven underpasses, some of which were slow at 46 km / h.
“You really couldn’t stop Willians from doing that,” Baldelli said of Astudillo, who last performed in 2018. “She was mostly a volunteer. I’m not surprised he can hit 45 miles. He does it all. ”
Twins: OF Byron Buxton played its fourth straight game with mild string tension. He planned to do the whole training to check the injury.
Angels. Okhtan will throw the baton on Saturday until the team decides when his next start will be on the hill. He did not start on April 4 because of a blister on his right middle finger.
