‘A’ beat Angels to ruin Shohei Otani’s strong opening day performance

Tony Kemp and Aledmis Diaz ruined Shohei Otani’s impressive season debut with RBI hits in Thursday night’s two-run, eighth-inning rally that gave the hosts the Oakland Athletics a 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Opening Day .

Otani did not receive a decision in the game, despite walking away with a 1–0 lead after six innings, during which he limited fives to two strikes and three walks.

The star right-hander struck out 10 points and reached that number 10 times in 28 starts last season.
