As a starting pitcher and a designated hitter, Los Angeles Angels rookie Shohei Ohtani is embarking on a two-way journey that no major leaguer has successfully pulled off since Babe Ruth himself. Will Ohtani dominate on the mound and crush at the plate?
What did Ohtani do last?
At the plate -- On Friday, Ohtani hit his first career extra-base hit vs. a lefty, a double off Blake Snell in the second inning of the Angels' 8-3 loss to the Rays. For the game, Ohtani went 1-for-3. He is hitting .321/.367/.619 on the season.
On the mound -- Ohtani had another strong outing, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out 11 in 6 ⅓ innings against the Twins, but ended up with a no-decision. He left with a 1-0 lead and one out in the seventh inning after walking Logan Morrison, but Morrison later would score to tie the game. The Angels ended up with a 2-1 win.
When can I see Ohtani next?
At the plate -- Getting his usual game off the day before he takes the mound, Ohtani was out of the lineup Saturday night against the Rays.
On the mound -- The Angels are sticking with Shohei Sundays, with Ohtani scheduled to pitch the series finale against Tampa Bay at 4:07 p.m. ET.
