MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Trevor Plouffe went 2 for 3 and drove in the tying and go-ahead runs as the Minnesota Twins snapped a 10-game home losing streak with a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.

Plouffe's two-run, two-out double in the fifth inning tied the game 3-3, and his bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the seventh made it 4-3 as the Twins won at home for the first time since Aug. 15, avoiding the longest home losing streak since the franchise started in Washington in 1901.

The home skid was the Twins' longest since moving from Washington in 1961. The Senators lost 10 straight home games in 1957.

Playing a makeup game for an April 17 rainout, the Angels continue their longest trip of the season — nine games — on Tuesday in Toronto. They also play three-game series at Houston and Oakland.
