Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins held on for a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night in Anaheim, Calif.

Willi Castro finished 3-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs for Minnesota, which won its fifth game in a row. Byron Buxton and Ryan Jeffers added one RBI apiece.

Nolan Schanuel went 1-for-3 with two RBIs for the Angels, who lost for the seventh time in their past eight games. Zach Neto was 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI.

Twins right-hander Bailey Ober (2-1) allowed two runs on three hits in 7 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out eight.

One inning later, Minnesota made it 2-0. Buxton ripped a two-out RBI single to left, scoring Castro from second base.

Jeffers added a run-scoring single in the fifth to increase the Twins’ lead to 3-0.

In the sixth, Santana notched his second RBI of the game with a single to center to drive in Jose Miranda.

The Angels got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the sixth. Luis Rengifo led off the inning with a single, advanced to third on a double by Neto and scored on a Schanuel’s groundout to shortstop.

Schanuel delivered again with an RBI single to left in the bottom of the eighth.

The Twins made it 5-2 in the ninth. Castro drove in Austin Martin with his second double of the game.
