Angels experiment with Ohtani as cleanup hitter

Shohei Ohtani Los Angeles Angels reveal huge update ahead of Houston Astros series

Remarkably, Barria threw 49 pitches and loaded the bases in the first inning but didn't allow a run. Next up is a date with Giants RHP Johnny Cueto in the series finale on Sunday.

Trout changed that. His third-inning homer, his second dinger in the series, landed in the rocks in center field. Anybody who's hitting behind Mike Trout and Justin Upton, that's an important spot for us.

Rookie right-hander Jaime Barria of the Los Angeles Angels kept throwing strikes and Brandon Belt of the San Francisco Giants kept fouling them off and fouling them off and fouling them off and fouling them off.

Left-hander Tyler Skaggs (2-1, 3.98 ERA) is taking the mound for Los Angeles on Monday.

San Francisco is 5-1 in Cueto's last 6 starts and 2-5 in their last 7 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a right-handed starter. Mike Trout and the other Angels outfielders began looking at each other in amazement as the second at-bat of the game dragged on. Pujols is up to 2,992 career hits, and his latest hit was a homer off of Derek Holland, a familiar face from his days in Texas. Richards set the tone by matching his career high with 11 strikeouts in six superb innings.

Los Angeles had runners on the corners with two outs in the ninth before Hunter Strickland got Kinsler to fly out for his third save in five chances.

GETTYShohei Ohtani has been struggling with a blister on his hands

A week that began with a frozen field and a postponement in Kansas City seemed to chill the Angels to the bone upon their return to sunny Southern California. The Angels lost 8-1 to the Giants on Friday night after being outscored 27-3 in a three-game sweep by the Boston Red Sox. The Angels' hitters were no help, either, and one lopsided result followed another. He retired the Giants in order in the first inning, the first time an Angels pitcher had accomplished the feat since he did it during their victory one week earlier in Kansas City. Josh Reddick homered twice and drove in five runs to back a strong six-inning effort from Dallas Keuchel in the middle game.

Did he feel as good as he looked Saturday against the Giants? And I think we're going to adjust however we have to. "If I'm a couple steps over in right, I make that catch". Trout's home run traveled 415 feet, and ensured that Holland would allow at least two runs for the fourth straight start.

The Angels trailed for the fifth consecutive game. Brandon Belt led the Giants, going 1 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs, while Pablo Sandoval added a double and an RBI as well to round out the scoring for the Giants in the loss.

Instead, it was Pujols, who drilled an 0-1 mistake for a two-run home run. He needs eight hits to become the 32nd member of the 3,000-hit club.

Pujols would join Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Alex Rodriguez as the only players in major league history with 3,000 hits and 600 home runs.
