Shohei Ohtani and Charlie Morton were locked in a scoreless pitching duel Friday night in Atlanta for six innings. Morton came out of the game, but Shohei stayed in and probably wished he hadn’t.
Ohtani (9-5) struck out 11 batters as the Angels (39-54) took their fourth consecutive loss.
The Angels gathered just five hits on the night, and their run was scored on a ninth inning home run by Jonathan Villar.
On Saturday the Halos will try again against the Braves with Patrick Sandoval (3-5) making the start the Orange County team. Kyle Wright (11-4) will pitch for the Braves.
