Arcia, Park homer in 8th to lift Twins over Angels 6-4

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Oswaldo Arcia and Byung Ho Park homered in the eighth inning to lift Minnesota over the Los Angeles Angels 6-4 on Saturday, giving the Twins their second consecutive comeback victory after opening the season with nine straight defeats.

Arcia broke a 4-all tie with his first home run of the season. It came off reliever Joe Smith (0-1) and was Minnesota's first hit since the fifth inning. One batter later, Park - who had the decisive hit Friday night - added his own solo shot to give the Twins some insurance.

Trevor Plouffe had three hits and also homered for Minnesota.
