While the magic is usually reserved for the amusement park just down the road in Anaheim, it was a shaping up to be a magical afternoon at Angel Stadium as Japanese superstar Shohei Ohtani took a ideal game into the seventh inning against the A's. He's also shown improved plate discipline, posting a 8-to-6 BB/K ratio in 25 plate appearances.
TIGERS 1, WHITE SOX 0 Mike Fiers combined with four relievers on a three-hitter that completed a three-game sweep for visiting Detroit. The Angels are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series, 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games and 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
If Ohtani throws a ideal game in his second start, the hype surrounding this dude will be off the charts. Jed Lowrie hit a solo home run in the first he singled with two outs in the ninth, but was caught taking a wide turn around first for the final out.
BRAVES 4, ROCKIES 0 Sean Newcomb (1-1) allowed three hits in the first inning before retiring the next 16 batters to help Atlanta shut out host Colorado. After Ohtani got a standing ovation from the crowd, he walked the next batter.
DODGERS 2, GIANTS 1 Cody Bellinger overcame food poisoning to score the go-ahead run on Kyle Farmer's pinch-hit double in the 10th inning off Pierce Johnson (0-1) and Los Angeles defeated host San Francisco. Graveman started their confrontation with a sinker that didn't sink. He batted second and played center field. He served up home runs left and right, and many scouts thought he couldn't handle big-league pitching. The Los Angeles Angels are 4-1 this season when scoring more than three runs.

Kendall Graveman lasted 3 1/3 innings, and he's probably lucky he made it that far, allowing five hits, five runs and four walks. Los Angeles is getting 55 percent of the wagers for this game as the favorite at home against the Athletics.
Los Angeles (+110) is coming into this one as the underdog to Oakland (-130) and oddsmakers have put the Over/Under for this day game at 8.5 runs (-105 for the under and -115 for the over). Ohtani got through six ideal innings of baseball, but perhaps his best moment was after he lost his date with history. Trout also has seven RBIs.
"It's very impressive, yeah, " Athletics manager Bob Melvin said. It's going to happen with every player.
The Angels placed right-hander JC Ramirez on the 10-day disabled list because of a elbow strain that forced his departure from Saturday's loss to the A's.
"It's a rare kind of talent to do it both ways, and it's great to watch", Angels second baseman Zack Cozart said.
