Shohei Ohtani hit two three-run homers and drove in a career-high eight runs, but Whit Merrifield led off the 11th inning with an RBI double before the Kansas City Royals hung on for a 12-11 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. Ohtani crushed a 423-foot homer in the sixth and a game-tying, 438-foot shot in the ninth, giving him the biggest RBI game of his five-year stateside career. Daniel Mengden struck out Mike Trout with two Angels on base before Ohtani's flyout, and he retired Jared Walsh on a game-ending popup.
