Three takeaways from Shohei Ohtani's abbreviated start vs. Red Sox

Three takeaways from Shohei Ohtani's abbreviated start vs. Red Sox

The Red Sox and a blister teamed up to knock out Los Angeles Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani, and Boston posted a 10-1 win in a game matching the teams with the two best records in the majors Tuesday night at Anaheim, Calif. This could easily have had an effect on his stuff as pitchers develop routine and Ohtani's regimen was screwed up. He initially remained in that game, but he was removed before the start of the fourth inning.Betts didn't play Sunday, and Monday's rainout gave him an extra day of rest."Initially, the day after I was pretty sore, but I was able to walk around and whatnot, so I knew it wasn't too bad", Betts said before Tuesday's opener against the Angels. We'll await further details from the Angels on that front. Two innings later, he would be hit for three runs (earned) while surrendering two walks and four hits.

Ohtani then struggled to find any sort of consistency from the mound, hurling 66 pitches through two innings before being hooked by Angels skipper Mike Scioscia.

After winning two of his first three starts this season, Tanaka (2-2) allowed the Marlins to score three runs in the opening inning at Yankee Stadium after getting himself in a no-out, bases-loaded jam.

Nobody can stop the Boston Red Sox right now.

While Ohtani hasn't been facing stiffs in his two starts this season, he had yet to see anyone like Betts and the 25-year-old wanted to make sure the rookie knew that with one swing.

Ohtani also is off to a strong start as the Angels' designated hitter, batting.367 with three homers and 11 RBIs.

Red Sox starter David Price (2-1) got the win after a leisurely five innings, giving up one run and three hits. Spring training may not have been a ideal indication of the kind of pitcher Ohtani is, but it can't be ignored now.

~ Betts' second homer came in the third inning vs. Bard.
