Ohtani hits 1st HR of season for Angels in 5-4 win vs. Twins MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Shohei Ohtani hit his first home run of the season for the Los Angeles Angels, a towering two-run shot in the third inning against Minnesota ace Jose Berrios that fueled a 5-4 victory over the Twins on Monday night. Ohtani, who made his 2019 debut last week in his return from Tommy John elbow surgery, reached base on four of his five plate appearances. His 429-foot drive off the videoboard facade beneath the second deck in left-center field was the highlight of a three-run, five-hit third inning. The AL Rookie of the Year went deep 22 times in 326 at-bats in 2018.

Even Mike Trout has bad days.

Unfortunately for the Los Angeles Angels, his bad Friday was a costly one on the scoreboard.

An unlikely error — Trout's first since April 6, 2017 — helped the Texas Rangers take the lead. And then Trout’s game-ending strikeout secured a 4-3 Rangers victory.

The defensive mishap happened in the seventh inning when Trout couldn't handle Hunter Pence's sharp single to center field. The ball scooted away, allowing the go-ahead run to score from second base.

Angels' odd mix of Mike Trout & Co. inspires hope: 'Nothing but belief in ourselves'

Angels' odd mix of Mike Trout & Co. inspires hope: 'Nothing but belief in ourselves' With Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, the Angels have two of the greatest players in baseball history. The rest of the roster? Well, it's interesting.

Mike Trout is congratulated by his Angels teammates after hitting a three-run home run against the He’ s my favorite player because I ’m from Los Angeles and he was the first person on the Angels that my dad introduced me to. Signing Trout for the long haul reinforces the Angels ’ foundation.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Halos have considered making

The tying run also scored on the play. Had Trout fielded it cleanly though, that would have been the only run to score.

You can see the Rangers' Logan Forsythe freeze near second base, watching to see if Trout could make the catch. Opposing teams typically respect Trout's strong throwing arm, meaning that slight hesitation would have been enough reason to hold Forsythe at third base.

Once the error was committed, there was a clear path to home.

Some might say Forsythe would have scored later in the inning anyway because there was only one out. That might be true, but we’ll never know for sure. Regardless, the error was warranted because it also allowed Pence to advance to second base.

Remarkable streak

The error was Trout's first in the last 262 games he’s played in the outfield. Nick Markakis of the Atlanta Braves holds the record for the most consecutive errorless games for an outfielder at 398. Trout still had a ways to go, but his run was impressive.

For his career, Trout has only committed 17 errors in 1,048 games in the outfield. Yet despite that excellence and an extensive reel of spectacular catches, he's never won a Gold Glove award.

No redemption

Trout had a golden opportunity to redeem himself in Friday’s game. He came to bat with two outs in the ninth inning while representing the winning run.

That battle was won by Shawn Kelley, who struck Trout out on four pitches to lock up the Rangers’ fifth straight victory.

Trout finished the game 1-for-4 with a walk.

For Raptors, a bad 6-minute stretch proved very costly.
It all came apart in about six minutes for the Toronto Raptors.They went scoreless over their first 12 possessions of the second half, a stretch during which what had been a double-digit lead late in the second quarter became a double-digit deficit to the Golden State Warriors. With that, the lead was gone for good. And so, too, is the Raptors' home-court advantage in the NBA Finals.
