Shohei Ohtani (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) went 1-for-3 with a triple, but it wasn’t enough to prevent his team from losing.

With his 23rd multi-hit game of the season, Ohtani posted a .297 batting average and a 1.000 on-base percentage (OPS).
Despite Ohtani’s big day, the Angels fell to Colorado 3-4. The Angels, who had pounded out 28 hits the day before in a 25-1 blowout, were held to eight hits and five walks on the day.
