The Angels are coming into the start of an 11-game homestand red hot, winning six of the last eight games. After taking the final game of the short series against the Rockies Wednesday, the Halos sit at 22-14 just out of reach of the Astros in the AL West. Coming to town are the similarly streaking Twins, who have won five-straight, all on the road.

Angels vs. Twins: The Schedule
Note: All times reflect 'Angels Live' start time for games on Fox Sports West.
After being snubbed from earning the American League Player of the Week, Mike Trout continued to dominate both at the plate and in the field against the Mariners and Rockies. Trout is hitting over .400 over the last 15 games and picked up two outfield assists on cannon throws to get a would-be advancing runner at third and behind a runner retreating to second. Trout is also still second in the majors with 12 home runs. He has struggled a bit at home compared to on the road (Trout's batting average at home is about .40 worse at the Big A), but he has dominated right handed pitching so far this season (.330 avg) so the Twins will have their hands full.
