Shohei Ohtani's Babe Ruth impression is getting better

After hitting Jed Lowrie following the hit allowed to Semien in the seventh, Ohtani regrouped by retiring Khris Davis and striking out Matt Olson to exit with a standing ovation.

The Los Angeles Angels were ecstatic when they signed two-way star Shohei Ohtani.

Marcus Semien's clean one-out single to left broke up Ohtani's bid for a ideal game, and the two-way Japanese sensation finished the inning for a bravura performance with 12 strikeouts. Ohtani is a must-see player in baseball, and I can't wait to see what he does next. In the 12th, with Kenley Jansen on the mound, McCutchen laced another single into right field and tied the career-high mark he set back in May 2010, with five hits. "I wanted that strikeout, and I got it". The first player in the majors to attempt to both pitch and hit as a regular since Babe Ruth, the 23-year-old Ohtani had homered in each of his three games between pitching assignments as the Angels' designated hitter. This is due to the fact that Ohtani has a risky splitter ball in his arsenal, a pitch he used to retire four batters.

Speaking of pitching, Angels' fans had their first glimpse of Ohtani on the mound in the team's 7-4 win against the A's on March 31.

Griezmann riled by Atleti's slow start in Madrid derby
The Atletico star is clearly a fan of the video game Fortnite and has already given us a few celebrations inspired by the game. Antoine Griezmann believes he is back to his best at Atletico Madrid after enduring a "complicated" start to the season.

Mike Trout and Ryan Schimpf homered, and Albert Pujols had an RBI double in the Angels' seventh win in nine games. "As a Red Sox fan, very sad, because he's too good". The shortstop got hurt while sliding down into the Tampa Bay dugout and will have tests Monday. Then the next thing you know, he's got three home runs and he's hitting over.400. But the right-hander handled the Phillies in his first start of 2018, allowing only one hit over five scoreless innings while walking one and striking out five.

Indians 3, Royals 1 • In Cleveland, Yan Gomes hit a tiebreaking two-run homer off Brandon Maurer (0-2) in the ninth inning. While his 2016 ERA would be amongst the MLB's best, his hitting numbers pale in comparison to the league's top-tier hitters.

The Oakland Athletics were shut down on offense against Shohei Ohtani and the Angels on Sunday, losing 6-1 in the series finale.

Ohtani, who is batting.462 (6-for-13) with six RBIs at home, drew a walk on four pitches with the bases loaded to pull the Angels within 8-7 in the fifth.

Organic Light Emitting Diode displays, aka OLED displays, are flexible and can be shaped into curves or even folded, unlike LCD. Instead of putting the sensors in the bezel, the entire screen would act as a sensor to detect finger proximity and position.

The two-way newcomer from Japan connected Friday night for a solo home run in the second inning against Oakland's Daniel Gossett. His pitching still has to iron out a little, but he had a decent first start against the Athletics.

Featuring a fastball that reached triple digits throughout his outing and a nasty splitter, Ohtani got through the first six innings easily.

Mets 6, Nationals 5, 12 innings • In Washington, Yoenis Cespedes scored Juan Lagares with a broken-bat single in the 12th inning to help NY beat the Nationals to complete a three-game sweep. After that happened, Bogaerts hit.232 with four homers, a.661 OPS and a 74 wRC+ the rest of the way (.308, six homers, .818 OPS, 114 wRC+ through July 6).
