Ohtani Hits MLB-Best 36th HR But Angels Routed By Rockies

Shohei Ohtani hit his major league-leading 36th home run, one of the few highlights for the Los Angeles Angels in a 12-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies.

Brendan Rodgers and pinch-hitter Sam Hilliard homered to back six effective innings from winner Austin Gomber as Colorado improved to 11-37 on the road.

Los Angeles trailed 10-0 in the fifth before Ohtani launched a 463-foot drive to center field for a two-run shot.

The two-way sensation pitched seven strong innings Monday night and hit an RBI single in a 6-2 win over the Rockies.

Gomber allowed two earned runs and five hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked two.
