Efren Navarro clubbed a pair of solo dingers during a loss to the Twins on Saturday.
He didn't even start the game, coming in to replace the injured Miguel Cabrera in the second inning. He popped an Ervin Santana offering over the wall in the sixth inning and then victimized reliever Gabriel Moya in the ninth. The dingers were the first of the season for Navarro, in fact he's hit only one other major league home run, and that came way back in 2014. The 31-year-old first broke into the majors in 2011 with the Angels. Sep 23 - 9:41 PM

Efren Navarro went 3-for-4 and drove in two of the Angels' three runs Tuesday against the Astros.

Navarro is still trying to convince Mike Scioscia to play him regularly against righties. He's hitting .293 in 58 at-bats, albeit with just three extra-base hits (all doubles) and five RBI. He'd still seem to be a better option than the alternatives.
