8-10 - Rangers can’t tame a wild Ohtani, fall 6-2 in Anaheim

The Texas Rangers scored two runs and the Anaheim Angels scored six runs.

Anaheim starter Shohei Ohtani was, as we say, effectively wild tonight for the Angels in his second start of the season. Ohtani — limited to 80 pitches — allowed a career high six walks to Texas but he also struck out seven and gave up just one hit as he danced around danger in each of his four innings.

By the time Ohtani exited, the Angels had put a couple of runs on psuedo-normal starter Jordan Lyles. Eventually Lyles allowed three runs in six innings on five hits, zero walks, and five strikeouts.
