MINNEAPOLIS — The Twins appeared to have Wednesday’s series finale under control after jumping out to a five-run lead, but another rally off Trevor Hildenberger in the ninth inning set up a perilous escape by Mike Morin as the Twins hung on for an 8-7 win and a series victory in Wednesday afternoon’s finale against the Angels.

Though the Twins’ bullpen had quietly experienced a run of success in May, as it had carried a 2.45 bullpen ERA in the month into Wednesday’s game, that was interrupted by a late rally in the ninth inning off Hildenberger, who allowed a pair of doubles and a single as he was tagged for three earned runs.

Though Morin allowed a pair of singles and hit Mike Trout with the bases loaded to move the tying run to third, he induced a groundout from Shohei Ohtani to close out the contest.

The early offense on homers from Byron Buxton and Jason Castro and a pair of RBI doubles from Ehire Adrianza and Eddie Rosario proved barely enough to support a shaky bullpen and Jake Odorizzi, who stretched his scoreless streak to 22 1/3 innings — the fifth longest by a starter in Twins history — but dealt with traffic on the basepaths in every inning as he allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks in 5 1/3 frames.
