Ohtani homers in third straight game for Angels

Shohei Ohtani watches his solo home run leave the yard in the second inning

Updates with new lead.

After homering against Daniel Gossett as the designated hitter Friday night, it was the second time Ohtani has stifled the A's on the mound in the span of a week. He had 11 strikeouts in an overwhelming performance by the two-way Japanese sensation.

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. Marcus Semien broke up Ohtani's bid for perfection by driving a fastball to left field for a single with one out, but the A's were dominated in a 6-1 loss to the Angels Sunday in front of a sold out crowd of 44,742 fans. He was even better at home, mixing 99 miles per hour fastballs with precipitous breaking pitches.

"I wanted to keep a clean zero on the board", Ohtani said. He gave up one hit. He got strikeouts with his wicked splitter.

Kendall Graveman (0-1, 8.10 ERA) will make his third start of the season for Oakland. "I feel better every day".

The serial RCB wrecker Sunil Narine [139 runs off 54 balls at a strike rate of 257.40 in his four outings against RCB ]. For Kohli, who along with Uthappa played his 150th IPL match on the day, things just don't seem to be going his way.

He was sharp from the beginning on a gorgeous day in Orange County, striking out the side in the first inning on 15 pitches. "But the bottom line is he pitched really well".

Anaheim trailed 6-0 in the second. "It didn't look like (the A's) had a chance up there, the way he was throwing".

They managed to knock the Angels' starters out of the game early in the last two games, making their bullpen work overtime and generally giving them an advantage overall. Trout is hitting.333 (10 for 30) with two home runs and four RBIs against him. Matt Joyce homered in the ninth. He batted second and played center field. The two-time AL MVP added a bloop RBI single in the fourth to chase Graveman.

Outfielder Trayce Thompson is excited to get things going with the Athletics, speaking positively about the team and discussing his aspirations moving forward on Saturday. Ruth did it five times, starting in four consecutive seasons from 1918-21 and again in 1930. Trout walked and scored the first run on Albert Pujols' two-out double in the first inning.

Trout also delivered a run-scoring single in the fourth that extended the Angels lead to 4-0 and drove Graveman (0-2) from the game.
