MINNEAPOLIS – Patrick Sandoval of the Los Angeles Angels has lost his no-hit bid with one out in the ninth inning against the Minnesota Twins.

Twins rookie Brent Rooker hit a soft, opposite-field double just inside the right-field line for Minnesota's first hit.

Sandoval struck out 13, walked a batter and hit two. He retired the next batter after Rooker's hit and then was pulled.

The Angels lead 2-0.
