Ohtani grants young Royals fan's wish by gifting one of his bats

Shohei Ohtani: Week Two

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Ohtani is expected to DH against the Kansas City Royals on Thursday and Friday and will then take an off-day Saturday, per The Score. Gamblers can wager on the game's total with odds sitting at -125 for over nine runs and +105 for under nine.

And it got even better for Leo - Ohtani returned soon after with a bat in hand, much to the young fan's joy. The Royals have dropped five in a row and are last in the AL Central with a 3-10 record. The team has lost 3.1 units for bettors taking the moneyline and 2.1 units against the spread (ATS). Not all baseball players do that between batting practice and game time, but it wasn't entirely out of the ordinary. The Angels are 11-3 SU and have gone 9-4 ATS. Ohtani's first hit in Angel stadium is a 3-run blast with an exit velocity of 104.5 miles per hour. Los Angeles has an over/under record of 8-5.

He will be be the starting pitcher on Sunday in the finale against the Royals, making it his third consecutive Sunday on the field, the Chicago Tribune reported. The over has hit in seven of those games, compared to three that've gone under in such games. "Three straight homers is pretty remarkable".

And, yes, the Rangers were lousy, losing to the Angels, 7-2, as they completed the kind of sweep that can energize a visiting bunch.

The Angels went on to win 7 to 1, extending their streak to 5 games.

4-0 in their last 4 road games vs. a right-handed starter.

Ohtani's translator, Ippei Mizuhara, told him what the 6-year-old kid (Leo Guastello) had said, causing the Angels phenom to chuckle before walking away.

Francisco Cervelli lined a three-run shot in the seventh off Justin Wilson as Pittsburgh scored four times in the inning to break open a tight game. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 1.67 ERA in five starts against Chicago. The team has slashed.271/.337/.382 over its last five matchups and is 1-4 SU during that span.

WASHINGTON - DJ LeMahieu hit two home runs and drove in a career-high four runs, powering Colorado to the victory.

Moustakas seemed to have some trouble hitting lefties at home in 2017. Ohtani put one against the wall behind the batter's eye in center and sent a couple of bombs into the upper reaches of the home run porch in right. Mike Trout also is being Mike Trout.

Ohanti is just the third player in Major League Baseball history to record two wins and hit three home runs in his team's first 10 games of a season, and the first to do so since 1919.
