Shohei Ohtani struggled against a lineup stacked with Rockies regulars, serving up seven runs and being pulled after 1 1/3 innings as the Los Angeles Angels were blown out 18-6 by Colorado on Friday at Tempe, Ariz.
Ohtani was set to throw 75 pitches over four to five innings, but needed 50 pitches on his way to being pulled in the second inning. He worked out of trouble in a scoreless first before unraveling in the second, giving up hits to six of the first seven batters he faced in the frame, including home runs by Ian Desmond and Nolan Arenado. He also hit a batter in the inning and ended his outing with a strikeout of Trevor Story.
Ohtani's spring ERA climbed to 27.00 following his disastrous day. The two-way Japanese star hasn't fared much better at the plate, going 2-for-20.
