    Behind new starter, Athletics aim to build off opening win vs. Angels

    The Oakland Athletics will hope another newcomer has as much success against the visiting Los Angeles Angels as a trio enjoyed on Opening Day when the American League West rivals continue a three-game series Saturday afternoon. Seriously handcuffed by Shohei Ohtani for six innings, the A's rode the strong starting pitching of Kyle Muller and key eighth-inning hits by Esteury Ruiz and Aledmys Diaz to a come-from-behind, 2-1 victory Thursday. Hoping to follow in the footsteps of Muller, who held the Angels to one run on four hits in five innings, Oakland will send right-hander Shintaro Fujinami to the mound to square off with Angels lefty Patrick Sandoval.
