Offbeat Shohei Ohtani set to return to mound Sunday for Angels
Marlins solve Kershaw for his first 6-walk game in 8 years
The Miami Marlins might be one of baseball's bottom-feeders this season, but, for one day, they managed to make life miserable for the great Clayton Kershaw. Miami patiently outwaited Kershaw for five innings on Wednesday afternoon and worked him for six walks, matching the Los Angeles Dodgers legend's career worst. It's just the third time that Kershaw has walked six in a game, and hadn't done it since April 7, 2010, according to the Baseball-Reference Play Index.

OAKLAND — Back on the mound after nearly 23 months, Shohei Ohtani hardly felt comfortable. Ohtani didn’t record an out in his long-awaited return to the mound for the Angels , allowing the first six Oakland batters to reach base before his day was done in a 6-4 loss to the Athletics on Sunday .
SEATTLE (AP) -- Shohei Ohtani is set to make his return to the mound after being announced as the Los Angeles Angels' starter for Sunday's series finale against Seattle.
The Angels listed Ohtani as the starter on prior to Saturday's game. He went through a bullpen session on Friday and came out of that without issue. Manager Mike Scioscia said after Friday's game that all signs were pointing to Ohtani making the start but the team wanted to wait till Saturday before making it official.
It sets up an enticing pitching matchup with Felix Hernandez set to get the start for Seattle.
Ohtani had been scheduled to start earlier this week before a mild ankle sprain pushed back his turn in the rotation. Ohtani is 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA in four starts. He's struck out 26 batters in 20 1/3 innings.
