The Twins lost 4-3 in Anaheim to the Los Angeles Angels Monday night.  Minnesota fell behind 4-0 before scoring 3 runs in the 8th inning but they came up short.  Alexi Casilla went 3-4 with a run scored, 1 RBI and 2 stolen bases and Danny Valencia was 2-4 with 1 RBI for the Twins.  Nick Blackburn threw 6 innings with 7 hits and 3 earned runs allowed to take the loss and drop to 0-3.  C.J. Wilson threw 7 1/3 innings with 5 hits and 3 earned runs allowed to get the win.  Former Twin Torii Hunter hit a 2-run homerun for the Angels.

Twins’ first baseman Justin Morneau left the game in the 7th inning with a sore left wrist and will fly back to Minnesota to have his wrist looked at.  Joe Mauer did not play Monday night after fouling a ball off his leg Sunday.  He has a sore knee.

The Twins and Angels play the 2nd game of the 3-game series in Anaheim tonight at 9:05, pregame on WJON at 8:35.  Lefthander Francisco Liriano (0-3) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and righthander Jerome Williams (1-1) toes the rubber for the Angels.
