Ohtani singles in first career at-bat as DH, to pitch Sunday
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Just like that, Shohei Ohtani has his first major league hit.
Ohtani lined a first-pitch single down the right-field line Thursday against Oakland’s Kendall Graveman with two outs in the second inning and the Angels ahead 1-0.
The Japanese two-way star started at designated hitter batting eighth for Los Angeles. He is set to pitch for the first time in Sunday’s series finale against the Athletics.
