  • Shohei Ohtani watches his solo home run leave the yard in the second inning

If Ohtani throws a flawless game in his second start, the hype surrounding this dude will be off the charts.

Angels: RHP JC Ramirez (0-1, 7.71) allowed four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings against Cleveland on Monday.

Tigers 1, White Sox 0 • In Chicago, Mike Fiers (1-0) combined with four relievers on a three-hitter that completed a three-game sweep.

DIAMONDBACKS 4, CARDINALS 1 David Peralta hit a tiebreaking, two-run home run off Dominic Leone in the eighth inning for visiting Arizona in a game that saw Diamondbacks Manager Torey Lovullo get tossed. He was immensely sought-after by Major League Baseball teams throughout his final season in Japan and had the option to leave and join the big franchise Los Angeles Dodgers.

Ohtani (2-0) did not allow a base runner until one out in the seventh inning in a 6-1 win over the Oakland Athletics at Angels Stadium.

The Japanese Babe ruth wowed yet again Sunday, as he struck out 12 and carried a ideal game into the seventh inning in an electrifying start against the Athletics. Matt Chapman leads the A's with 15 hits and eight RBI while Jed Lowrie and Marcus Semien have combined for 25 hits and 12 RBI. He gave up five hits and one walk while striking out three.

The two-way star from Japan connected for a long, solo drive in the second inning against Daniel Gossett.

Angels' Shohei Ohtani walks back to the dugout after striking out the Oakland batter in the sixth inning in Anaheim on Sunday, April 8, 2018.

Sure these are ridiculously small sample sizes - two starts pitching, and 19 plate appearances batting - but Ohtani's major league numbers are sublime: a 2.08 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 13 innings, while hitting.389/.421/.889.

The two-way star from Japan crushed a 93 miles per hour, two-seam fastball from A's starter Daniel Gossett to left-center, a 449-foot solo shot onto the fake rocks up by the camera well.

The suspension of Chavis, who is now on the roster of the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs, is effective immediately.

Babe Ruth was the last American League player prior to Ohtani to homer in three straight games in the same season he started a game as a pitcher.

Chavis was sidelined this spring by an oblique injury. He's making baseball fun in the early going. The Angels may want to develop him as a full-time ace of the staff, and worry about hitting less. Three other minor leaguers were suspended by the league on Friday. While the debuts calmed Angels fans everywhere after a less-than-impressive spring training performance, they also inspired scrutiny and debate - side-effects of being under the microscope of both national and global media attention.

But Ohtani will have to wait until Sunday to see the field again, when he makes his second professional start.
