The Twins are 7-21 and have lost 3 in a row and 6 of their last 7.  The Twins will host the L.A. Angels at 7:10 tonight, pregame on WJON at 6:40.  Lefthander Scott Diamond gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Dan Haren (1-2) toes the rubber for the Angels.  Diamond was 4-1 with a 2.60 ERA in 5 starts at triple-A Rochester this season.
