Shohei Ohtani is baseball's forgotten wonder

Although last year's two-way sensation is limited to only hitting, the Angels DH still can do some amazing things -- such as hit for the cycle.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Shohei Ohtani, who just hit for the cycle, has a 1.517 OPS since June 4. Only Christian Yelich's is higher. I don't think anybody expected him to be this good a hitter. Not this quickly, at least.

The Cubs scored 2 runs in the first inning and the Dodgers were lucky it wasn't more. Kyle Schwarber hit the first pitch out to center field — the first leadoff home run allowed by Clayton Kershaw since 2015 — and the Cubs followed with back-to-back baserunners.

Justin Bour batted .163 in his first 30 games of the season. In his first at-bat back from Triple-A, he clubbed a three-run homer to center field. The Angels have scored five runs with two outs in the first inning off Kenta Maeda.

Shohei Ohtani cranked a 416-foot home run off countryman Kenta Maeda. It's his fourth in his last seven starts. Ohtani has a 1.309 OPS over his last 28 plate appearances.

Trout hits tying HR, and Angels rally to beat Dodgers 5-3

Mike Trout hit a tying two-run homer in the seventh, and Shohei Ohtani slid home from third with the tiebreaking run in the eighth inning of the Los Angeles Angels' 5-3 comeback victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.

The Angels drew 45,477 fans tonight, many of them rooting for the Dodgers. They say it's their largest crowd since their ballpark was renovated before the 1998 season.

The Dodgers brought Dylan Floro into the game to face Mike Trout, and he belted a two-out, two-run homer to tie the game at 3 in the seventh inning.

Albert Pujols received a phone number for David Ortiz's security guard moments before BP started and was going to call him to get the latest. Pujols said Ortiz means "everything" to the DR. "It's a shocker. I don't know the details, anything about it, but it's a shocker."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

As a teenager, Albert Pujols used to ditch school to watch David Ortiz play afternoon games with the Mariners' summer league affiliate, which resided only blocks away from his childhood home. Shortly thereafter, they built a friendship that has spanned two decades. "We're family," Pujols said.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers and Angels open the annual Freeway Series tonight, and Cody Bellinger and Mike Trout are tied for the lead in FanGraphs WAR. "Obviously the city of Los Angeles is very spoiled with the best players," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.
