Ohtani also walked a batter in the inning but struck out Matt Olson to end the scoring threat.
Shohei Ohtani has been everything as advertised - but better.
Japanese two-way sensation Shohei Ohtani on Friday continued his assault on the record books, becoming the first Los Angeles Angels rookie to homer in each of his first three home games.
Update (6:17 PM ET): Ohtani got Matt Joyce to line out for the first out of the seventh inning, but Marcus Semien broke up the ideal game with a well-struck single to left field. Mixing 99 miles per hour fastballs with precipitous breaking pitches and tremendous professional cool, Ohtani (2-0) was too much for Oakland - until the seventh, when he showed resilience, too. Ohtani is a must-see player in baseball, and I can't wait to see what he does next. Washington intentionally walked Michael Conforto, and then Cespedes - hitless in five previous at-bats - splintered his bat on a soft liner to center field.
"You never want to get a flawless game thrown on you", Semien said. The Athletics have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their first 10 games. While Ohtani continues to figure out how to shorten his swing against high-velocity pitchers, there are plenty of back-end starters with average fastballs on which the slugger should feast.
Mike Trout and Ryan Schimpf homered, and Albert Pujols had an RBI double in the Angels' seventh win in nine games. Tampa Bay has dropped eight straight since its win on opening day. Then the next thing you know, he's got three home runs and he's hitting over.400.
He was sharp from the beginning on a gorgeous day in Orange County, striking out the side in the first inning on 15 pitches.
Ohtani got a lineout to short to open the inning, but he fell behind 2-0 to Marcus Semien smashed single through the left of the infield.
"It's a rare kind of talent to do it both ways, and it's great to watch", second baseman Zack Cozart said.
Nicknamed the Babe Ruth of Japan as a result of his dual risk, Ohtani became the very first Major League player with 2 wins and three home runs in his group's first 10 games as Jim Shaw for the Washington Senators at 1919, according to mlb.com www.mlb.com. All 12 of his strikeouts were swinging strikeouts, pointing to how dominant he truly was.
