Williams pitches 3-hitter, Angels beat Twins 4-0
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Jerome Williams earned his second major league shutout with a three-hitter, Torii Hunter homered for the fourth time in five games after a season-opening 18-game drought, and Howie Kendrick also went deep against struggling Francisco Liriano to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.
Williams (2-1) threw 109 pitches, striking out six and retiring 18 of his last 19 batters while going the distance for only the third time in 81 career starts. His other shutout was on June 27, 2003 with the Giants, a seven-hitter against the Oakland Athletics at San Francisco in his sixth big league start.
The game was over in 2 hours, 10 minutes.
