ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Shohei Ohtani hit his fifth homer and added an RBI double, and Ian Kinsler had a two-run homer among his three hits as Los Angeles defeated Minnesota for its seventh victory in nine games. 

Justin Upton also homered in his third straight game and Kole Calhoun drove in the tiebreaking run in the sixth inning as the Angels snapped Minnesota's five-game winning streak. 

Brian Dozier hit a three-run homer in the sixth before Max Kepler followed with a tying solo shot for the Twins off reliever Jose Alvarez (2-0), but the Angels reclaimed the lead moments later and eventually ended Minnesota's longest streak of the season. 

Andrelton Simmons had three hits for the Angels. Jim Johnson pitched the ninth for his first save. 

Jose Berrios (3-4) yielded seven hits and five runs in 5 1/3 innings.
