Box Score of the Week

Goin' way, way back to 1921 when the Detroit Tigers took on the New York Yankees.


Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani was the starting (and winning) pitcher in his club's April 1 game vs. Oakland. The next game he played in was two days later as the Angels' DH against Cleveland. Ohtani hit a home run in that game, becoming the first player since Babe Ruth in 1921 to win a game as a starting pitcher one day and then hit a home run the following game he played. 

This week's featured game is where Ruth homered a day after notching a victory as a starting pitcher.
