Aiming for the second win in a month since the match against Rangers on April 27
■ Athletics-Angels (29th Japan time, Oakland)
Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani will rise to the seventh starting pitcher’s mound this season in the match against Athletics, the enemy’s land on the 28th (29th Japan time). The starting lineup was announced, and Otani will not participate in the pitching at the same time, aiming for the second win as a pitcher for the first time in a month.
Initially, he was scheduled to start on the 27th (28th) the day before, but the team bus on which Otani and others were on was caught in an accident traffic jam.
