Angels 5, Twins 1

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ervin Santana followed up his no-hitter with an eight-hitter and the Angels got home runs from Torii Hunter and rookie Mark Trumbo. Santana's bid to duplicate Johnny Vander Meer's feat of back-to-back no-hitters in 1938 with the Reds ended in the second inning when Jason Kubel lined a leadoff single to rightfield on Santana's 20th pitch. Santana did post posting consecutive complete games for the first time in the big leagues on the heels of his 3-1 gem Wednesday at Cleveland.
