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

Already 1-0, Ohtani is flawless through six innings in his second start against the Oakland Athletics. After hitting Jed Lowrie following the hit allowed to Semien in the seventh, Ohtani regrouped by retiring Khris Davis and striking out Matt Olson to exit with a standing ovation.

Ohtani was helpful to the Angels as they won their first series with Oakland three games to one, but Los Angeles started the season strong due to their ability to mesh as a team, and from key contributions from another newcomer in second-baseman Zack Cozart. "I wanted that strikeout, and I got it".

Heading into the 2018 season, many were doubting that Japanese phenom Shohei Ohtani would be able to make the transition to Major League Baseball after a rough spring training.

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 big league pitching debut at Oakland one week ago, giving up three runs in six innings with six strikeouts.

In between his last start and this one, Ohtani had three straight games with a home run.

Ruling party takes big lead in Hungary election
The alliance of the left-wing Socialist and Dialogue parties had 11.8 percent, meaning it would have 19 deputies in parliament. However, the polls could be unreliable as one-third of voters are undecided and many hide their voting preference.

He was sharp from the start, striking out the side in the first inning on 15 pitches.

Ohtani's homer got the Angels on the scoreboard in the second before they tacked on four runs in the fourth. "It didn't look like (the A's) had a chance up there, the way he was throwing".

People in Japan are excited about Ohtani's start. The Angels starting pitcher Parker Bridwell has a career 10-3 record, with a 3.91 earned run average. Trout joined a club of nine players in baseball history, including Pujols, who had 200 homers and 700 runs scored before their age-27 season. Oakland's Chad Pinder is out today due to a knee injury while outfielder Boog Powell is questionable due to a knee injury that kept him out on Saturday. The Los Angeles Angels' pitcher finished with an impressive 12 strikeouts.

In addition to placing Ramirez on the DL, the Angels also optioned Akeel Morris to Triple-A Salt Lake and recalled fellow right-handers Eduardo Paredes and Felix Pena from their top minor-league club.

Mike Trout, 26, a center fielder with the Los Angeles Angels and a 2009 Millville High School graduate, was the 2014 and 2016 American League Most Valuable Player. Likely to see his velocity tick upward as the temperature rises, Harvey could be on the verge of a major rebound campaign.Video: PHI@NYM: Harvey tosses five shutout in season debutGerrit Cole, starter, Astros: Cole took a step backward after a breakout 2015 campaign in which he went 19-8 with a 2.60 ERA, posting a 4.12 ERA across the past two seasons.
