The Los Angeles Angels are firing on all cylinders

The Los Angeles Angels are firing on all cylinders

And while the team is trying to rest the 6-foot-4 left hander on days that he's not pitching, Ohtani is feeling frustrated with the down time. They have plenty of guys in the lineup that can hurt you with base hits, with power.

Chicago's Ian Happ had his first two-hit game this season.

The 23-year-old Ohtani, who played Thursday as a designated hitter, logged his first triple since moving to the United States over the winter. The problem was that he had already thrown 94 pitches. "I just wanted to leave it all out on the field".

Williams yielded one run and four hits through six innings.

With two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the seventh, Ohtani hit a sharp line drive triple off Royals reliever Brandon Maurer in his fourth plate appearance to give the Angels a 6-0 lead. Ten of them came in a Monday rout of the Seattle Mariners.

Mike Moustakas scored on a Lucas Duda single in the 8th inning for the Royals lone run.

City could also take the title if United beat West Brom and then lose to Bournemouth in midweek. The result leaves Manchester City 16 points clear at the top with five games remaining.

The Angels have gained 4.2 units and are 7-3 ATS when facing a righty starter this season. "We'll check with him and see when he's available and we'll go from there". Jorge Soler replaced Merrifield in the 2-hole and struck out four times.

It was Ohtani's first extra-base hit that didn't wind up as a home run. Kansas City has covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the total has gone under in five of those seven.

The Angels optioned RHP Jamie Barria, who won his big league debut on Wednesday at Texas, and INF Ryan Schimpf to Triple-A Salt Lake.

If Shohei Ohtani isn't your new favorite player yet, I don't know what to say. He received a cortisone shot Monday and has been shut down since. "The first thing they (the medical staff) said was, this doesn't have to be surgery. After today, I'll have a lot better answers for you as far as how it feels and maybe the timetable upon the return". The Royals and Angels play again Friday night with first pitch at 7:15pm.

Hammel is coming off an impressive outing Sunday at Cleveland, tossing six scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Indians.
