April 8 #FreePick: What Does Ohtani Mean to the Angels?
Shohei Ohtani crushed a home run in his third consecutive game
10 April, 2018, 20:22
Ohtani is the first American League player to hit a home run in three straight games in the same season he started a game as a pitcher since Ruth, who did it last in 1930, per STATS LLC.
Since giving up a solo home run to Mike Trout on June 18, 2016, Triggs has allowed one earned run in his past 14 innings against the Angels.
Upton's decisive blow, however, was made possible one batter earlier when the Angels had runners on second and third with two out, and Oakland holding a 9-7 lead.
Nicknamed the Babe Ruth of Japan as a result of his dual risk, Ohtani became the very first Major League player with 2 wins and three home runs in his group's first 10 games as Jim Shaw for the Washington Senators at 1919, according to mlb.com www.mlb.com.
The Athletics also hit consecutive home runs against the Angels in the season opener on March 29.
Chapman seemed to take a step back when hitting righty pitching on the road a year ago, maintaining a slash line of.149/.243/.347 across 115 such plate appearances (his overall season line was.234/.313/.472). There isn't such a tab for Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees poster-child and AL MVP runner-up past year, or even Mike Trout, the two time MVP who is projected to finish in the top 10 Wins Above Replacement ratings of all time when he's done. Los Angeles is getting 55 percent of the wagers for this game as the favorite at home against the Athletics.
Update (6:17 PM ET): Ohtani got Matt Joyce to line out for the first out of the seventh inning, but Marcus Semien broke up the flawless game with a well-struck single to left field.
Oakland holds the longest current streak in baseball without being no-hit, dating to July 13, 1991, a span of 4,232 games.
Lovullo, ejected in the second inning, was arguing a called third strike on A.J. Pollock and got into a shouting match with Molina.
Trout scored his 700th run in the first inning on Pujols' double down the left-field line. But here we are after his first four games-five when you count his 6-inning debut on the mound-and he's out here turning heads. He gave up five hits and one walk while striking out three.
Athletics hitters have slashed.265/.353/.422 on their way to 4.3 runs scored per game in 2018, including over the team's last five outings (2-3 SU). Not to mention his quality start and win over the A's in his first start on the mound. It was also the first time this season that Chapman has failed to reach base in a game. Simmons had an RBI double, Valbuena had a two-run single and Martin Maldonado added an RBI single to make it 6-5.
Blake Treinen (0-1) took the loss.
Josh Fields (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win and Kenley Jansen struck out three batters in the 10th for his first save.
Featuring a fastball that reached triple digits throughout his outing and a nasty splitter, Ohtani got through the first six innings easily.
