Ohtani (5-1) picked up the win in Monday's 6-2 victory over the Rockies, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings. He struck out five without walking a batter and also went 1-for-4 with an RBI, a steal and a run scored.
It's not the first time Ohtani has produced more offense with his bat than he surrendered on the mound. A Dom Nunez solo shot in the fifth inning was the only blemish on his pitching line, and the 27-year-old phenom has delivered quality starts in three straight outings, giving him eight on the season. Ohtani will carry a 3.04 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 100:36 K:BB through 80 innings into his next start.
