Angels rookie two-way player takes ideal game into seventh

Shohei Ohtani shows why spring training stats are for suckers

After allowing a single to Marcus Semien to end his flawless game, Ohtani faced slugger Matt Olson with two runners on and two outs.

Angels pitcher Parker Bridwell, making his first start of the season after replacing the injured Matt Shoemaker in the rotation, was tagged early and often.

Ohtani hit a home run for the third straight game and the Los Angeles Angels rallied from an early six-run deficit to beat the Oakland Athletics 13-9 on Friday night.

Update (6:17 PM ET): Ohtani got Matt Joyce to line out for the first out of the seventh inning, but Marcus Semien broke up the ideal game with a well-struck single to left field. Mixing 158 kph fastballs with precipitous breaking pitches and tremendous professional cool, Ohtani (2-0) was too much for Oakland - until the seventh, when he showed resilience, too.

Over the weekend Aghdam's family reported her missing to police when she disappeared and stopped answering her phone. Aghdam was known for protesting against animal cruelty and supporting a vegan lifestyle, relatives said.

"I wanted to hold a tidy zero to the board", Ohtani stated of the past out. "I wanted that strikeout, and I got it".

April 3 vs. Indians: In his first at-bat at home in Anaheim, Ohtani took Josh Tomlin deep for a three-run home run.

Ohtani won his big league pitching debut at Oakland one week ago, giving up three runs in six innings with six strikeouts. This is due to the fact that Ohtani has a risky splitter ball in his arsenal, a pitch he used to retire four batters. After Ohtani got a standing ovation from the crowd, he walked the next batter. But the right-hander handled the Phillies in his first start of 2018, allowing only one hit over five scoreless innings while walking one and striking out five. Chapman is hitting.400 on the season with 2 homeruns and 5 runs batted in.

The top hitters for the Angels have been Zack Cozart and Mike Trout.

We'll keep you updated as Ohtani attempts to stay flawless over the final three innings.

MARLINS 6, PHILLIES 3 Jake Arrieta (0-1) lasted just four innings in his Philadelphia debut, allowing 3 runs - 2 earned - and 3 hits while striking out 5 in a loss to visiting Miami. The Oakland Athletics are 4-4 this season when scoring at least three runs.

Third baseman Ryan Schimpf homered in his first start with the Angels, after they recalled him Saturday from Salt Lake to replace Nolan Fontana, who was sent the other way.

His second-inning blast reduced Oakland's lead to 6-1.

I don't think it's fair to the movie to say, "This has to be directed by a man", or "That has to be directed by a woman". The question that's endlessly playing out in fans' minds is who those deaths will be in the ensemble.

Athletics: RHP Andrew Triggs (0-0, 1.80) was not involved in the decision in his first start of the season, allowing one run and four hits in five innings at Texas on Monday. Following Brandon Belt's sixth-inning RBI double and Chase Utley's game-tying solo shot in the seventh, neither team added to their totals for the next six straight innings. Ichiro was a tactful hitter and his 3,000 hits will undoubtedly land him a place in the Hall of Fame, but Ohtani is potentially a home-run power hitter - therefore defying the prevailing stereotype that Asian players are only good for pitching or playing small ball.
