ANAHEIM, California (Kyodo) -- Two-way star Shohei Ohtani hit safely in his 12th straight game, the longest streak of his major league career, during the Los Angeles Angels' 4-3 win against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday.
Batting third as the designated hitter, Ohtani set a new benchmark in the first inning when he lined a 1-1 pitch from James Kaprielian for a double off the wall in left-center at Angel Stadium.
After both teams scored three runs in the second, Ohtani singled to left in the third off the right-hander as he went 2-for-4 on the night.
Jo Adell singled in the go-ahead run off A.J. Puk in the eighth.
The Chicago Cubs' Seiya Suzuki returned to the team from paternity leave but did not take part in their 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
