ohtani

MLB roundup: Wednesday

Shohei Ohtani hit his first home run in a Dodgers uniform as Los Angeles finished off a three-game sweep of the visiting San Francisco Giants with a 5-4 victory on Wednesday.

Ohtani went deep into the seats in right-center field in the seventh inning off Giants left-hander Taylor Rogers in his ninth game of the season, ending the longest season-opening homer drought of his major league career. Ohtani finished 2-for-4 with two runs.

The Dodgers have scored at least five runs in all nine games this season to extend their franchise record and move closer to the New York Yankees’ record of 13 games in 1932.

Tyler Glasnow (2-0) won for the second time in three starts and Miguel Rojas added a home run as the Dodgers finished 6-1 on their first homestand of the season.

Red Sox 1, A’s 0

Nick Pivetta teamed with four relievers for an eight-hit shutout as Boston completed a three-game sweep at Oakland.

Enmanuel Valdez lifted a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning for the game’s only run, allowing Pivetta (1-1) to earn the win in a pitchers’ duel with Oakland’s Ross Stripling (0-2).

Pivetta limited the A’s to five hits in five innings, and Kenley Jansen escaped a ninth-inning jam for his second save. Stripling allowed eight hits and one run in seven innings.

Astros 8, Blue Jays 0

Yordan Alvarez homered twice and finished with four hits and three RBIs as Houston beat visiting Toronto in the rubber match of a three-game set.

Jose Altuve and Jeremy Pena also went deep for Houston, while Cristian Javier (1-0) gave up one hit in five innings. The Astros outhit the Blue Jays 15-1, though Houston pitchers issued seven walks.

Chris Bassitt (0-2) allowed four runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings for the Blue Jays.

Guardians 8, Mariners 0

Jose Ramirez hit two doubles and had two RBIs and Logan Allen pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings as Cleveland routed host Seattle.

Leadoff hitter Steven Kwan went 3-for-5 and scored three times for the Guardians, who took two of three games in the series. Allen (2-0) allowed four hits, walked three and struck out six.

Mariners starter George Kirby (1-1) lasted just 3 2/3 innings and was tagged for eight runs on 10 hits.

Angels 10, Marlins 2

Miguel Sano reached base four times, Patrick Sandoval rebounded from a forgettable Opening Day start and Los Angeles completed a three-game sweep of host Miami.

It was the Angels’ fourth win in a row, while the Marlins are now 0-7, the longest losing streak to start a season in franchise history.

AJ Puk (0-2) threw four innings, allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits and three walks, striking out five for Miami.

Twins 7, Brewers 3

Ryan Jeffers cranked a go-ahead three-run homer with two outs in the top of the seventh to lift Minnesota over host Milwaukee.

Jeffers’ blast capped a five-run rally that the Twins used to erase a 3-1 deficit. Alex Kirilloff and Byron Buxton opened the frame with back-to-back doubles to pull Minnesota within 3-2, and Carlos Correa tied things up with an RBI single.

Rookie Jackson Chourio hit his first major league home run as the Brewers fell short of their fourth 5-0 start in franchise history. Rhys Hoskins also went deep, and Sal Frelick went 2-for-3 with a run.

Rangers 4, Rays 1

Nathan Eovaldi tossed seven scoreless innings and Corey Seager hit his first home run of the season, lifting Texas over Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Fla.

In his 103-pitch second outing of the season, Eovaldi (1-0) allowed just four hits and struck out eight for the Rangers.

Aaron Civale (1-1) tossed six strong innings, allowing one run on four hits for the Rays. He struck out eight and issued a pair of walks over 87 pitches.

Yankees 6, Diamondbacks 5 (11)

Jon Berti scored the go-ahead run on a balk in the 11th inning and Aaron Judge added an RBI double to lift New York over Arizona in Phoenix.

Gleyber Torres’ single off Scott McGough (0-1) put runners on first and third to begin the 11th inning. McGough was not set when he made a pitch to Juan Soto and was called for a balk, giving the Yankees a 5-4 lead. Judge, who launched a two-run homer in the fourth inning, plated Torres with a liner to center field.

Diamondbacks rookie Blaze Alexander belted his first career homer in the second inning and Ketel Marte added a solo shot in the fifth. Marte also ripped a double in the first inning for his 1,000th career hit.

Reds 4, Phillies 1

Christian Encarnacion-Strand and Elly De La Cruz drove in runs with doubles as Cincinnati defeated host Philadelphia.

Reds starter Frankie Montas (2-0) gave up five hits and one run, with five strikeouts and three walks in 5 2/3 innings.

Phillies starter Zack Wheeler (0-1) tossed six innings and allowed three hits and three runs (one earned). He recorded 10 strikeouts and one walk.

Padres 3, Cardinals 2

Joe Musgrove held St. Louis to one run on five hits over six innings as host San Diego prevailed.

Musgrove (1-1) struck out seven and walked one for the Padres. He rebounded nicely from his first two starts this season, when he allowed nine runs on 15 hits in 8 1/3 innings.

Cardinals starter Zack Thompson (0-2) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks over five innings. He fanned five.

Orioles 4, Royals 3

James McCann delivered a walk-off two-run single to cap a late-inning comeback as host Baltimore edged Kansas City.

It was the Orioles’ second walk-off win in three days. Jordan Westburg hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning on Monday to give Baltimore a 6-4 victory.

Salvador Perez had a pair of RBI singles and Maikel Garcia hit a solo homer in the seventh for the Royals. Perez finished with three hits while Garcia and Bobby Witt Jr. had two apiece.

Nationals 5, Pirates 3

Joey Gallo had three hits, including his first home run, and Washington handed visiting Pittsburgh its first loss of the season.

The Nationals’ Luis Garcia Jr. had three doubles, drove in a run and scored twice. CJ Abrams contributed two hits and two RBIs.

Jack Suwinski homered and doubled for the Pirates, and Michael A. Taylor added a two-run single.

Cubs 9, Rockies 8

Seiya Suzuki homered and drove in four runs while Miguel Amaya added three RBIs as Chicago blew a six-run lead before squeaking out a win over visiting Colorado.

The winning rally started in the bottom of the eighth when Miles Mastrobuoni struck out but reached first on a wild pitch. Ian Happ singled Mastrobuoni to third, and Suzuki followed with a grounder to third. Catcher Jacob Stallings couldn’t hang on to Ryan McMahon’s throw, and Mastrobuoni scored the go-ahead run.

Kris Bryant’s first hit in 19 at-bats this season, an RBI single, got the Rockies on the board in the sixth. Blackmon went 3-for-5 with two RBIs, and Bryant wound up with two hits.

Tigers at Mets, ppd.

For the second day in a row, a game scheduled between Detroit and host New York was postponed because of rain.
