  • Angels Star Shohei Ohtani Swinging Hot Bat After Third Home Run Of Season

Los Angeles Angels rookie Shohei Ohtani is simply on another level right now.

Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter Shohei Ohtani is not in Saturday's lineup against the Oakland Athletics. Ohtani was particularly spectacular on Sunday, taking a flawless game into the seventh and striking out 12 while allowing just one hit and one walk. He was even better at home, mixing 99 miles per hour fastballs with precipitous breaking pitches. "One hit would [mean] two runs, and it's a huge difference".

"You never want to get a flawless game thrown on you", Semien said.

Blue Jays 7, Rangers 4 • In Arlington, Texas, Steve Pearce homered on the first pitch of the game from Cole Hamels (1-2), and Kendrys Morales added a three-run shot in the first inning. Ohtani won his pitching debut against Oakland last Sunday, allowing three runs over six innings with six strikeouts. Ohtani gets the day off before or after he pitches; otherwise, he takes AB's as the designated hitter when he's not on the mound. Ohtani, deservedly so, received a standing ovation from the crowd at Angels Stadium.

Mike Trout and Ryan Schimpf homered, and Albert Pujols had an RBI double in the Angels' seventh victory in nine games. Tampa Bay has dropped eight straight since its win on opening day.

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. And best of all, Ohtani now sits at 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA.

Shohei Ohtani has TWENTY swinging strikes through 5 flawless innings. Bettors can also wager on the game's runline with the odds sitting at Athletics +1.5 runs (+170) and Angels -1.5 runs (-180).
