ANAHEIM CA- APRIL 06 Shohei Ohtani #17 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim watches the ball go over the center field wall for a solo homerun during the second inning of the MLB game against the Oakland Athletics at Angel Stadium

Already 1-0, Ohtani is flawless through six innings in his second start against the Oakland Athletics. The ball traveled an estimated 136 meters over the center field wall and landed in a fountain. Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons said.

Pujols is 14-for-33 off Graveman with four home runs and 11 RBIs. It's the first home run Gossett has given up this season.

"It's very impressive, yeah". He might be even more impressive on the mound. "Any", Athletics manager Bob Melvin said. Ohtani was batting 8th as the designated-hitter.

However, he has assuaged those concerns during his performances since the opening of the season.

"We've got to get six, seven, sometimes pitch into the eighth inning to save some of those guys' arms early in the season", Graveman said. They rallied again in the fourth inning on Andrelton Simmons' ground-rule double and couple of RBI base hits from Luis Valbuena and Martin Maldonado and now trail the Athletics 6-5 in the fifth. Graveman was pulled with just one out in the third as he allowed five runs on five hits with four walks and three strikeouts, throwing only 84 pitches. Justin Upton then broke the tie with a three-run homer.

The Angels won 13-9 in a come-from-behind victory.

Ohtani has now homered in three straight games. Ruth did it five times, starting in four consecutive seasons from 1918-21 and again in 1930.

Thompson is expected to start against the Dodgers on Tuesday and Wednesday, with two left-handers scheduled to start for Los Angeles.
