Angels' Shohei Ohtani bats cleanup for 1st time in Major League Baseball, singles

Giants' starter Holland faces familiar foe — Angels

Home runs by Andrew McCutchen and Mac Williamson highlighted a six-run fifth inning and helped lift the San Francisco Giants to an 8-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels Friday night at Angel Stadium. Pitching for the Class A San Jose Giants on Saturday night, he allowed six runs in the first inning, four on a grand slam.

Through three career starts, Ohtani owns a 3.60 ERA, 0.80 WHIP, and 19 strikeouts.

Mike Trout's eighth-inning home run, his American League-leading seventh of the season, accounted for the Angels' only run of the game.

Giants catcher Nick Hundley opened the scoring with a second-inning solo home run to right center field off left-hander Andrew Heaney (0-1). Trout has been happily overshadowed in the early stages of 2018 by new teammate Shohei Ohtani, but the two-time MVP is quickly heating up with six home runs in his last 12 contests.

Ohtani popped out in his second and third at-bats but led off the ninth with a single off Giants reliever Josh Osich.

He's hitting.342 with three homers and 11 RBIs, with 10 strikeouts and three walks.

But surprise - it turns out her boyfriend Nicholas Young is an ultra rich, ultra eligible bachelor. But ultimately it will all boil down to who the characters love.

Cueto (2-0) took a no hitter into the sixth and ended up yielding only two hits and striking out seven in a 96-pitch effort, while Los Angeles starter Jaime Barria (1-1) lasted only two innings.

Meanwhile, Samardzija gave up just two hits but walked four and had to work his way out of a couple of jams. Reddick is the first Houston player to hit two grand slams in the same calendar month since Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell accomplished the feat in May 2001.

This time the Giants lost because the game's modern wonder, Mike Trout, homered and doubled twice for the Angels, and in retrospect, it was an act of mercy that he only almost robbed Brandon Belt of a two-run home run. The Angels were outscored 27-3 in the series.
