MLB Roundup: Shohei Ohtani Hits Two Homers, Fans 10

Shohei Ohtani hit two home runs, struck out 10 in 6 1/3 innings and lifted the Los Angeles Angels to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night in Anaheim, Calif.

Ohtani finished 3-for-3 with a walk in four plate appearances. He took a shutout into the seventh inning before exiting with a cracked fingernail. Ohtani (7-3) wound up charged with one run on four hits and two walks.

The White Sox got a run in the ninth and had the bases loaded with no outs before Carlos Estevez struck out Seby Zavala and got Elvis Andrus to hit into a double play to earn his 20th save. Eloy Jimenez had three hits for Chicago. Michael Kopech (3-7) gave up two runs and walked seven in four-plus innings.
