Tropeano, Ohtani lead Angels past KC

Tropeano, Ohtani lead Angels past KC

Updates with new lead.

Shohei Ohtani has appeared in nine of the Los Angeles Angels' first 14 games, but wants to do more. Nick Tropeano pitched shutout ball into the seventh for his first major league win since 2016.

"He looked really sad when he was asking me", Ohtani said through a translator. Josh Tomlin takes the mound for Cleveland, and the Angels gave him an early exit.

Ohtani had 3 more at-bats the rest of the game one of them resulting in a single, and the other two were groundouts.

The Angels have gained 4.2 units and are 7-3 ATS when facing a righty starter this season. Simmons was hitting.356 with a major-league leading 21 hits. "I wasn't sitting only on a changeup".

"They signed and traded for a bunch of guys, so to make the playoff roster was definitely going to be tough", Fiers said this spring, adding that while he was disappointed, he could not argue.

Perhaps a part of the decision was seeing Ohtani get intentionally walked on Thursday night.

The Angels are 3-10 in their last 13 versus the AL Central and 0-5 in their last five Thursday games. Mike Trout added a solo home run in the 8th.

Stay tuned this weekend to see how the Japanese star does in his third start of the year. Kinsler missed the previous 11 games with an adductor strain. They average 2.91 runs per game and that includes one game where they scored 10. "They're a veteran lineup".




Ohtani had been batting eighth in the order for all seven of his games as a hitter. The problem was that he had already thrown 94 pitches. "I just wanted to leave it all out on the field". Hendricks allowed two runs and five hits in six innings. Also, the Royals haven't shown any consistency to score.

Third baseman Mike Moustakas and first baseman Lucas Duda have led the Royals' offense so far.

Royals DH Whit Merrifield hit fifth for the second time in his career. The first batter of the game, Matt Joyce, got caught swinging on an splitter.

We went to see Tony Oliva hit for the Twins. Zack Cozart and Jefry Marte each had RBI-Triples.

Royals: OF Alex Gordon, on the disabled list with a left labrum tear, had 2009 surgery on a right labrum tear.

Shohei Ohtani said, "I feel very comfortable with my team and I want to keep contributing". He received a cortisone shot Monday and has been shut down since.

Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney gets the ball Friday night in Kansas City, his first start of the year after beginning the season on the disabled list with elbow inflammation.

Jason Hammel is getting the start for the Royals tonight.
