Shohei Ohtani continues to be the best by giving an adorable kid one of his bats

Los Angeles Angels' Shohei Ohtani right talks to second base umpire Quinn Wolcott after hitting a double during the second inning of a baseball game against the Kansas City Royals Friday

However, the Kansas City Royals weren't taking their chances with Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani when he came to the plate in the top of the sixth inning Thursday night.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Angels are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -145 to prevail. Gamblers can also wager on the game's spread with the most recent runline odds coming in at Angels -1.5 runs (+115) and Royals 1.5 runs (-135).

Michael Wacha (2-1) went five innings and extended his streak of beating Cincinnati.

"I was aiming to drive in more runs so I'm glad I did", Ohtani said.

On Friday Andrew Heaney will make his first start of the season.

So how are the Los Angeles Angels doing it so far this season?

MINNEAPOLIS - Joe Mauer reached 2,000 career hits, Jose Berrios struck out 11 in seven innings and Minnesota earned its third straight win.

Ohtani is tied with Trout for the Angels' lead with 11 RBIs - in 26 at-bats. Hitting has been an issue this season.

"Looking at video, they score a ton of runs", Kennedy said.

Maybe they should have just walked him again, after all.

Royals starter Jason Hammel will try to slow down the Angels' offense, which has outscored opponents 68-21 in their last seven victories. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 1.67 ERA in five starts against Chicago.

The two-way star's batting heroics came four days after he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in his last pitching start against the Oakland Athletics. Other than that he had three walks with three strikeouts.

The Angels entered the inning with a slim 1-0 lead before Kole Calhoun gave them some breathing room with a two-out, two-run single off Royals reliever Blaine Boyer.

0-5 in their last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

CINCINNATI - Jose Martinez drove in six runs and Yadier Molina homered in his return from a one-game suspension, powering St. Louis to a victory that left Cincinnati mired in its worst start since 1955.
