Sandoval has no-hit bid end in 9th; Angels beat Twins 2-1
MINNEAPOLIS — (AP) — Patrick Sandoval had his no-hit bid broken up with one out in the ninth inning on a soft double by rookie Brent Rooker, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1 Saturday night. Sandoval, a 24-year-old lefty who began the game with a 3-13 career record, struck out a career-high 13. José Berríos (7-5) allowed two unearned runs in seven innings in perhaps his final start for Minnesota. Sandoval kept the struggling Twins at bay with a combination of his sinker, changeup and slow curveball. Miguel Sanó reached base on a throwing error by shortstop José Iglesias to start the fifth, but Sandoval struck out the next three batters.wftv.com
