Angels' Ohtani picks up 2 hits

Angels' Ohtani picks up 2 hits”

The Angels star honored the request of one of his biggest fans, a 7-year-old boy from a Baltimore suburb named Gavin Edelson, by homing in Los Angeles' game against the Orioles at Camden Yards on Friday.

Angels Injuries: JC Ramirez: 60-day IL (elbow), Keynan Middleton: 60-day IL (elbow), Andrew Heaney: 10-day IL (elbow), Justin Upton: 60-day IL (toe), Michael Hermosillo: 10-day IL (groin).

On Saturday's game in Baltimore, he batted third as a designated hitter in his fifth game of the season.

If the Angels scored eight runs, there's a pretty good chance Mike Trout had something to do with it, and sure enough he clocked a two-run home run in the third inning Friday night.

Pujols hit a two-run drive in the first inning and a solo shot in the fourth.

In the ninth inning, with a runner on second, Ohtani swung at a breaking ball to get a hit to the right, adding another run for the team.

Means, 26, is coming off his best start of the season, a win against the Boston Red Sox in which he gave up one run on three hits in seven innings.

For the Sunday game, the Angels will be going with Griffin Canning in the starting role. Los Angeles is slugging.424 as a unit.

Orioles: LHP Richard Bleier (shoulder tendinitis) had consecutive one-inning scoreless appearances at Double-A Bowie and is set to join Class A Frederick on Tuesday.

Despite going 0 for 3 with a walk, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis is 17 for 58 (.293) with four homers and 14 RBIs in 20 games since starting the season 0 for 33.

Save for the handful of mistakes that contributed to his first loss, Canning is as good as advertised so far with the Angels.

The Angels are 8-11 on the road.

TOP PERFORMERS: Trey Mancini leads the Orioles with 19 extra base hits and is batting.324. Despite having four hits Friday night and owning a.390 lifetime batting average against Baltimore, Andrelton Simmons was rested until the eighth inning by Ausmus. He's allowed at least five runs in four of seven starts this year.

Orioles: Rookie John Means (4-3, 2.48) makes his sixth start of his career, the first against the Angels.
