In the Athletics' first game in Oakland, 50 years ago Tue., Rick Monday homered & Tony LaRussa had a PH single for the A's (the future HoF manager's one hit in 3 MLB ABs that year), but the Orioles won 4-1 behind Dave McNally's two-hitter & solo HRs for Boog Powell, Mark Belanger & Brooks Robinson.

Ohtani gets a huge ovation as he walks off the mound after seven scoreless innings. He's probably done for the day and ends it by striking out Matt Olson on a 3-2 splitter with two runners on — after throwing a 99-mph fastball on the previous pitch. He finishes with 12 strikeouts.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Marcus Semien breaks up Shohei Ohtani's perfect game bid with a one-out single in the seventh, a hard grounder into left field on a 2-0 96-mph fastball. Still, Ohtani has already registered 24 swing-and-misses, most in the majors this season.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Eighteen up and 18 down for Shohei Ohtani as he continues to dominate the A's. He's at 75 pitches so he'll probably have to be very efficient these final three innings to go the distance, as managers are even more conservative than usual with pitch counts early in the season.
