Shohei Ohtani Lobbying Angels For More Playing Time

Shohei Ohtani Lobbying Angels For More Playing Time

HIs first week in the city of Angels will be a memorable one, not only for Ohtani but for any general baseball fan. The Angels won their ninth consecutive road game, and will have Shohei Ohtani as their starting pitcher Sunday. And oh what a home debut it was. "I'll run out of bats".

The Royals will counter with right-hander Jakob Junis (2-0, 0.00).

Garrett Richards will be on the hill for the Angels on Saturday and trying to get his record to 2-0. In the Wednesday game, Moustakas had two hits and a run.

In Ohtani's next at-bat in the bottom of the third, he turned on an 0-1 cutter for a single to right field.

"He looked really sad when he was asking me", Ohtani said through a translator.

Before that, the Japanese star homered off pitcher Corey Kluber.

In his second start, Ohtani blew everyone away.

Williams (3-0) was a bit better than Kyle Hendricks (0-1) in what began as a pitchers' duel following Chicago's 13-5 rout of Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. Trout is slashing.273/.388/.600 with 15 hits, five homers, 11 RBIs and 14 runs scored, while Ohtani is slashing.346/.414/.769 with nine hits, three homers, 11 RBIs and four runs scored.

United Nations boss urges restraint after strikes on Syria
The ambassador urged Britain, France and the United States "not to bring the world to such a risky threshold". He termed it as an "act of aggression" that will exacerbate humanitarian catastrophe in Syria.

LeMahieu added an RBI double in the second off Gonzalez (1-1).

SAN DIEGO - Chris Stratton and Derek Law combined on a one-hitter, and Hunter Pence's broken-bat, two-run bloop single highlighted a three-run first inning for San Francisco. Not too shabby for your first week.

He pitched well in his last start, but didn't last that long, throwing only 4.1 innings overall despite just allowing one earned run.

Pujols belted a first-pitch, two-run homer in the third inning with Kinsler aboard.

Tropeano, making his first big league appearance since July 18, 2016, limited the Royals to six hits over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. Before you know it we are through 6 ideal innings with 11 K's.

Lindor, who entered the night batting.184 with one RBI, hit his fourth career leadoff homer off Michael Fulmer (1-2). He then walked Jed Lowrie on 4 pitches. Gallagher struck out and Abraham Almonte grounded out to strand the runners. Now that the Red Sox have lost a game, the Angels are the hottest team in baseball and Thursday's 7-1 win over the Royals was their fifth straight win and they have climbed all the way to 11-3 on the year. They have been outscored 54-24 in the nine losses. "It's just kind of insane, all the fame that he gets, even over in Japan, and obviously over here now". Ohtani next start date is yet to be announced but it will more than likely be sometime this weekend when the Angels take a trip to Kauffman stadium to play the Royals.
