Shohei Ohtani faced 10 batters, struck out 5 of them and got a nice applause as he walked off the field. He issued a couple of walks and 3 extra-base hits, but his stuff looked good and he was around the strike zone. Huge difference from what we saw last summer, and thus, a win.

Shohei Ohtani struck out the side in the first inning, working around a 3-1 walk to Matt Chapman and a double on a hard grounder Elvis Andrus was out in front on. Ohtani didn't seem to command the breaking ball great — to me, at least — but that's common in dry Arizona.
