Shohei Ohtani’s batsman is expected back in the box after a flop on the mound at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday. The Angels’ two-way phenom received only two outs during his much-anticipated first pitching appearance in the Bronx, chased after four walks and charged a career-worst seven.
Ohtani hit the leadoff, but got only one bat flying to the center. He leads the Major with 28 homers, including the first two games of a four-game set in New York.
The Angels made a spectacular comeback after Ohtani’s departure, with Jared Walsh hitting a Grand Slam off Aroldis Chapman during the ninth inning of seven in Los Angeles’ 11-8 win. The rain-soaked game ended at around 1 pm on Thursday, nearly 12 hours before the series finale’s scheduled first pitch.
Mets ace Jacob DeGrom is set to pitch against Atlanta after his 31-innings scoreless streak was ended by the Phillies in their last outing. The two-time Cy Young Award winner dropped a season-high two earned runs in a 4–3 victory, saying he struggled with mechanical faults in the latter innings.

Milwaukee extended their streak by beating the Cubs 15-7 on Wednesday, extending their division lead over Chicago to six games.
Corbin Burns (3-4, 2.53 ERA) starts for the Brewers in Pittsburgh. His worst start to the season came against the Pirates on June 12 when he allowed four runs and nine hits in just four innings.

Tree Turner would see how he felt, a day after a speedy Washington shortstop jammed a finger on a headfirst slide for a triple. The sixth inning dive completed his record-tying third career cycle – he did the same on his 28th birthday.
According to the Alias Sports Bureau, Turner became the fifth player in major league history with three rounds, joining Adrian Beltre, Bebe Hermann, Bob Meusel and John Reilly.
Turner scored 4 for 4, scored four runs and stole two bases in a 15-6 win over Tampa Bay. He departed for the pinch-hitter in seventh and was listed as a day-to-day.
