Angels Look To Support Haren, Win Series In Minnesota Against Twins

After collecting just one hit in Saturday's loss to the Twins, the Angels look for a series win in Minnesota on Sunday afternoon. Dan Haren faces Carl Pavano in the series finale at Target Field. The loss on Saturday dropped the Angels from a tie for first place into third place in the tightly-packed American League West.

Haren is 4-3 with a 2.13 ERA this season, but he hasn't picked up a victory since April 17. Since that time, Haren has a 2.74 ERA in seven starts, averaging just over seven innings per start, yet is 0-3. The Angels have scored a total of 18 runs in those seven starts. Pavano is 2-4 with a 5.28 ERA this season for the Twins.
