Ohtani shines on mound and plate, Angels beat Arizona

Shohei Ohtani ponchó a ocho, He hit two doubles and beat an injury attempt to guide the Los Angeles Angels to a 6-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in low hours in 10 innings on Friday.

The Angels had the final run in the top of the 10th inning, when a groundout from Max Stassi drove in Jared Walsh. Venezuelan Eduardo Escobar had forced the extra innings by leveling the score for Arizona with a two-out homer off Cuban Raisel Iglesias (4-2) in the ninth.

Puerto Rican Alex Claudio posted his first save of the season by getting the last out striking out Stephen Vogt with two on-bases. Arizona chained its eighth loss.

It was another great night for Ohtani after a few worrying moments in the third chapter.

For the Angels, Juan Lagares 1-0 and Ketel Marte 4-0 for the Diamondbacks

The ambivalent ace – second in batting order – fell to his knees and winced after a ball struck him on the inside of his right knee. He finally got up and limped for a few minutes while talking to the deliverers before returning to the game.

Iglesias claimed victory with a one-hit, one-touchdown job. Ryan Buchter (0-1) took the loss by conceding a run in a third of an inning on the mound.

For the Angels, Juan Lagares 1-0. Cuban José Iglesias 5-1, with one scored.

For the Diamondbacks, Ketel Marte 4-0, with one run scored. Venezuelans Asdrúbal Cabrera 5-0; Eduardo Escobar 5-2, with a run scored and an RBI; David Peralta 4-2.
