Angels hopeful Ohtani (blister) makes next start

Angels hopeful Ohtani (blister) makes next start

The two-way phenom allowed four hits and three earned runs in two innings, striking out one and walking two.

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia offered no indication as to when Shohei Ohtani he will be back on the mound, but he is expected to continue hitting between starts. With his three-homer game, Betts is up to five dingers for the season.

What a difference a few weeks makes, too, because I feel like before this season started, many people would have said they'd rather have Stanton. The others are Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner and Boog Powell.Hall of Famer Ted Williams, who also accomplished the feat three times, is the only other Red Sox player with a trio of three-homer games.Three days after a foot injury caused him to get precautionary X-rays, Betts worked the count full against Othani and fouled off a pitch before sending a 97-mph four-seam fastball over the wall in left-center.

Nobody can stop the Boston Red Sox right now. Facing the Red Sox was his biggest test of the young season.

The visitors made it 4-0 on a Derek Dietrich RBI single in the second, and though Tanaka managed to hold them scoreless in the third and fourth innings, he surrendered a three-run homer to Marlins catcher J. T. Realmuto with two outs in the fifth. He finished second in AL MVP voting two years ago, sixth last year and is now off to an even better start.

Betts homered again in the third inning against reliever Luke Bard.

"We'll be flexible", Scioscia said.

The 25-year-old star went 3-for-3 (with two walks), with all of those hits being of the dinger variety in a 10-1 win over the Angels. "We'll see where everything sets up".

Obviously, this is the first time Ohtani has looked anything less than super-human during his first month in the majors.

Leadoff man Mookie Betts got the jump on Ohtani, opening the game with the first of his three homers.

But as for Ohtani, all good things must come to an end.
