Angels Vs. Twins, Game 2 Final Score: Jerome Williams Throws 3-Hitter In 4-0 Win

So far, May is starting out much better for the Los Angeles Angels than April did. The Halos played the second game of a homestand opener against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night and had little problem holding down a 4-0 victory, clinching the team just their second series win of the season.

Starter Jerome Williams was magnificent, easily wiping away the bad taste of his first two problematic starts with a gem of a complete game shutout, surrendering just three hits and one walk, while striking out six. Williams' record improves to 2-1 and his ERA lowers to 3.55. The three hits allowed to the Twins were all singles.

The Halos did all of their scoring in the second and third innings. Torii Hunter stayed red-hot, hitting his fourth home run of the year to lead off the bottom of the second. Two batters later, Howie Kendrick would add a solo shot of his own. In the third, Albert Pujols drove in Chris Iannetta with a groundout to the left side, after which Hunter would single in Mike Trout. Kendrick was 3-for-4 with a home run and a triple, while Pujols was again hitless, but picked up his fifth RBI of the season.

The Angels will go for their first series sweep of 2012 on Wednesday.

Angels Vs. Twins, Game 1 Final Score: Halos Manage To Take Series Opener, 4-3

The Los Angeles Angels returned to the Big A on Monday night to host the Minnesota Twins for a three-game series. Right when the Angels needed it most, they picked up a big win in the opener by a final score of 4-3 and will head into May on a winning note.

The Halos once again ran into trouble in the late innings, but this time were able to hang on and give C.J. Wilson his third win of the year.

Torii Hunter drove in the first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning with a two-out RBI single. Hunter would drive in the next two runs for the Angels as well with his third homer of the year in the bottom of the fourth inning. The Angels would get an all-important insurance run in the bottom of the seventh on a solo shot by Chris Iannetta, but the 4-0 lead would turn into a 4-3 lead quickly, as the Twins plated three in the top of the eighth.

The Angels were able to limit the damage there, however, as Scott Downs went 1.1 innings of one-hit baseball for his second save of the season. Wilson ended up going 7.1 innings, having all three runs charged to him on five hits and one walk.

Albert Pujols was 1-for-4 with another double (his eighth of the year) and a run scored. He is now batting .217.
