Shohei Ohtani clubbed his first career Major League Baseball home run with a 3-run shot to right field against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night.
With two outs and runners on second and third in his first at-bat, Ohtani took Tomlin deep to right-center at Angel Stadium, where the pitcher-slugger was making his debut.
Ohtani also singled twice to finish with three hits in four at-bats. Nevertheless, Ohtani has already become the first player since 1920 to both start separate games as a hitter and as a pitcher within the first 10 games of the season.
"It obviously felt really, really good", Ohtani said through an interpreter, drying himself as he spoke to the crowd after teammate Kole Calhoun surprised him with a bucket of icy water after the game.
Yemen's Houthis Hit Saudi Oil Tanker Off Coast
The UN's Yemen envoy, Martin Griffiths, has recently visited Riyadh and Sanaa in hopes of revitalising sputtering peace talks. About 10,000 Yemenis have been killed and 53,000 wounded since the start of the coalition intervention in Yemen.
Trout, Justin Upton and Luis Valbuena also homered for the Angels, who broke a 12-game losing streak to the Indians.
Angels starter Garrett Richards, who got a no-decision in his Opening Day start last Thursday, gave up a two-run homer to Jose Ramirez before settling in. Statcast measured his last hit at 112.8 miles per hour, the hardest-hit ball by an Angels player this season.
The 23-year-old rookie, who earned Babe Ruth comparisons in Japan by excelling both as a fireballing pitcher and a slugging outfielder, performed encouragingly well in his first Major League Baseball start on the mound Sunday. Serving as the designated hitter, Ohtani finished the game 3-for-4 in what had to be a dream come true debut at Angel Stadium.
Indians: RHP Corey Kluber (0-1) starts Wednesday in the finale of the three-game series. Not for nothing, but the Angels would cruise to a 2-13 victory en route to a 4-2 start here in the early going.
