Shohei Ohtani’s first hit as Dodger beats Reds in extra innings – Orange County Register

LOS ANGELES — It was Shohei Ohtani’s weekend in Los Angeles.

They lined up hours in advance to get his first bobblehead as a Dodger on Thursday. The Los Angeles City Council proclaimed May 17 as Shohei Ohtani Day in Los Angeles. And on Sunday, Ohtani capped it off with his first hit as a Dodger, driving in the winning run in the 10th inning of a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Ohtani’s RBI single secured the Dodgers’ 20th win in their last 26 games. It featured more notable work coming from a mixed and matched bullpen. Four relievers – including journeyman left-hander Anthony Banda newly added to the roster – combined to hold the Reds to one run on two hits over the final 5 1/3 innings.

A month into his career in the major championships, Andy Pages experienced several firsts, including his first fall. After a fly out in his first at-bat Sunday, Pages was 7 for his last 45 (.156) with 18 strikeouts and just one extra-base hit (a double).

But right-hander Hunter Greene gave him a hanging slider in the fourth inning and Pages hooked him into the seats along the left-field line for a two-run homer that gave the Dodgers the lead.

It lasted for a while.

Landon Knack once again proved to be a reliable starter, holding the Reds scoreless until the fifth inning. But back-to-back doubles cut the Dodgers’ lead in half.

Ryan Yarbrough faced the top of the Reds’ lineup, left-handed, and kept the lead intact until the seventh inning. He then became his own worst enemy.

Yarbrough walked Jonathan India to start the inning. Stuart Fairchild dropped a bunt to the grass to the right of the pitcher’s mound, looking to put India in scoring position.

Yarbrough fielded it, turned and threw to first base – where no one was covering. First baseman Freddie Freeman had charged from first base and second baseman Gavin Lux had failed to replace behind him.
