Japanese baseball star Shohei Ohtani eyes Babe Ruth as possible two-way player

Angels at Royals The Sked

On Friday, Ohtani batted seventh as the designated hitter and registered his first Major League Baseball career double in his first at-bat, then added a single in the eighth as the Angels rallied 5-4 over the Kansas City Royals.

Nomo-mania was a thing when Hideo Nomo went to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1995 and Ichiro Suzuki made a big splash in 2001 with the Seattle Mariners. Gamblers can wager on the game's total with odds sitting at -125 for over nine runs and +105 for under nine. "Hopefully he can swing the bat and become a good player someday, but I can't be doing this all the time or I'll run out of bats".

The Royals have dropped five of Hammel's last six starts and six straight when Hammels faces off with an AL West opponent. The team has lost 3.1 units for bettors taking the moneyline and 2.1 units against the spread (ATS). "I grew up, I was born in a cold place", Ohtani said through a translator. In the 7th Shohei Ohtani tripled driving 3 runs. Los Angeles has an over/under record of 8-5.

Ohtani is not expected to be in the lineup again until Tuesday, at the earliest, because he is scheduled to pitch on Sunday and the Angels are off on Monday. On the other hand, the Royals have netted 0.0 units and are 2-2 ATS when facing a left-handed starting pitcher.

"Looking at video, they score a ton of runs", Kennedy said.

Left-hander Andrew Heaney will get the nod for the visiting Angels. Heaney struggled past year once he came back the last two months of the season going 1-2 with a 7.07 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP.

They are scheduled to be Wednesday at Windsor Castle on May 19 and more than 2,500 people have been invited to attend the event. The film will star Murray Fraser ("The Loch") as Prince Harry and Parisa Fitz-Henley ("Midnight Texas") as Meghan Markle .

So far, the 23-year-old two-way star has exceeded everyone's expectations, winning both of his starts as a pitcher and hitting homers in three consecutive games.

Francisco Cervelli lined a three-run shot in the seventh off Justin Wilson as Pittsburgh scored four times in the inning to break open a tight game. He went 4-6 with a 4.94 ERA in 2017 at Kauffman Stadium. The team has slashed.271/.337/.382 over its last five matchups and is 1-4 SU during that span. He already has two of their three wins and if he wins on Saturday, he may have three of their four wins.

Moustakas seemed to have some trouble hitting lefties at home in 2017. L.A ended up winning this game in the 13th inning on a Zack Cozart home run. In the bottom of the 2nd Ohtani turned on a 2-0 two seamer from Gossett and demolished the baseball.
