Ohtani homers again, Angels rally by A's

Angels' designated hitter Shohei Ohtani homered for the third straight game on Friday night

Ruth was among only two players to hit a homer in three straight games and have an outing with double-digit strikeouts in the same season, having done so in 1919 - Ken Brett also did it in 1973 - before Ohtani did so in the same week.

On the mound, the righty flashed elite fastball velocity and a nasty splitter. Those runs were all he allowed, and he went on to complete six innings with six strikeouts.

Jed Lowrie drew a four-pitch walk after Semien's single, but Ohtani ended the threat by inducing Khris Davis' weak groundout and striking out Matt Olson.

ORIOLES 8, YANKEES 7, 12 INNINGS Brad Brach escaped his own bases-loaded, no-out jam in the 12th inning, getting his second save for visiting Baltimore when Aaron Judge grounded into a rare pitcher-to-catcher-to-third double play and striking out Giancarlo Stanton.

Los Angeles (+110) is coming into this one as the underdog to Oakland (-130) and oddsmakers have put the Over/Under for this day game at 8.5 runs (-105 for the under and -115 for the over).

Chiesa later said on Twitter that the New York State Athletic Commission determined he would not be allowed to fight on Saturday. McGregor was due to be transferred to the criminal court later for an arraignment hearing, Jones said.

Already 1-0, Ohtani is ideal through six innings in his second start against the Oakland Athletics. Graveman is 2-2 with a 4.33 ERA and 46 strikeouts in his career against the Angels.

It was a rough game overall for the Athletics and Chapman just happened to run into the red-hot Ohtani at the wrong time.

Ohtani struck out the side twice during the latest feat in a series of early season superlatives by the 23-year-old prodigy. After adjusting his training regimen over the offseason, Polanco is swinging a hot bat in the early going (1.147 OPS). He's doing something that hasn't been done in 100 years, and the last guy to do it was Babe Ruth, who is considered to be the greatest baseball player of all time.

Los Angeles had one of the best overall pitching performances in their opening series in all of the Major League Baseball. Two of those came against lefties (Clayton Kershaw and Marco Gonzales), matching his career total vs. southpaws prior to 2018. "It's just modified a little bit to where he's closer to the ground and can have a more consistent approach to the ball". But the veteran flourished while making adjustments to his swing and plate approach last season, posting a.933 OPS with a 141 wRC+ for the Reds.

Anaheim, Calif. • Shohei Ohtani retired the Oakland Athletics' first 19 batters and yielded one hit over seven shutout innings in his home pitching debut, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 6-1 victory Sunday.

The cause of the accident is under investigation. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the people during this complicated moment". The crew was conducting a training mission when their AH-64E Apache helicopter crashed into the training area around 9:50 p.m.

Astros 4, Padres 1 • In Houston, Max Stassi hit a three-run homer off Tyson Ross (1-1) and Charlie Morton (2-0) allowed four hits and three walks for one unearned run in six innings. Now back to full health, the 25-year-old has produced three barrels and posted an average exit velocity of 92.7 miles per hour so far, according to Statcast™ (six barrels, 87.3 miles per hour in 2017).

Ohtani won his big league pitching debut with six strong innings at Oakland one week ago.

It's an impressive shift from the pre-season. Manager Scott Servais told me recently that Hernandez has accepted that he's now working with diminished stuff and needs to attack hitters differently.

Trout connected for 440-homer over the ficus trees in center field in the third inning, snapping an 0-for-15 skid on Los Angeles' homestand.
