Baseball: Ohtani helps Angels to series win over Twins

Shohei Ohtani scored one run and drove in another to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 4-2 and wrap up a 2-1 series win on Sunday.

The two-way star scored the tying run at 2-2 on Luis Rengifo's two-RBI double in the third and later brought home the final run of the game with a single in the seventh.

The Halos plated the go-ahead run at 3-2 on Kurt Suzuki's sacrifice fly in the fourth at Angel Stadium.

Ohtani finished 1-for-2, striking out in the first and drawing walks in the third and fifth.

Left-hander Tucker Davidson (2-3) earned his first win since joining the Angels at the Aug. 2 trade deadline. He gave up a two-run homer to Byron Buxton in the first but otherwise kept the Twins quiet through six innings.

The Halos dropped Friday's series opener 4-0 but responded with a 5-3 win on Saturday after Ohtani sparked a comeback with his 26th home run of the season.
