Ohtani will look to continue his hot hitting against the Texas Rangers when they meet in the middle game of their three-game series at Angel Stadium on Tuesday.Ohtani Dustin McGowan Jersey , a Japanese rookie who successfully pitched for the Angels before ligament damage in his throwing elbow shut him down, hit a solo home run in the series opener on Monday night. The Angels went on to win 5-4 on a walk-off home run by pinch hitter Jose Briceno in the 11th inning, the sixth home run in the game.The sixth walk-off win of the season for the Angels (76-81), and first since July 27, ended a five-game losing streak that included four straight games in which the opposition scored in double figures and saw the Angels allow 56 runs.Article continues below ...Ohtani went 1-for-5 on Monday and is hitting .327 with five home runs, four doubles and 11 RBIs in 15 games against Texas (66-90) this season.Ohtani is 2-for-4 with two doubles off veteran right-hander Yovani Gallardo, the scheduled starter for the Rangers on Tuesday.Gallardo (8-6. 6.59) has made 16 starts this season. He went 7-1 from June 23 to August 8, but is 1-5 in his past seven outings http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , losing his past three.Gallardo will start on six days rest following a 4-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays last Tuesday. He went five innings in that game, allowing three runs and eight hits.Gallardo is 0-2 in his career against the Angels with a 6.75 ERA. He faced them at Angel Stadium on Sept. 12 and was pulled after allowing six runs and six hits in three innings of the 8-1 loss.Gallardo told MLB.com after his last start that he wants to finish the season strong.“This year has been a grind for all of us,” he said. “Had some rough outings and good outings, I’ve shown I have been able to go out and compete and still have it. This game, you never stop learning no matter how much service time you have. You keep making adjustments. I feel good, my body feels great. The next few outings finish strong and go from there.”The offense is averaging 7.54 runs when Gallardo is on the mound, but they’ve supplied just 10 runs in his past seven starts.Matt Shoemaker is scheduled to start for the Angels.Shoemaker (2-2, 5.48) is 4-2 with a 4.91 ERA in seven career starts against Texas. He faced the Rangers on Sept. 3 in Texas and threw five shutout innings in his first outing since March but did not receive the decision in the 3-1 victory.He struggled in his most recent outing Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey , allowing five runs and five hits in 2 2/3 innings of a 21-3 loss to the Oakland A’s on Thursday, the worst loss in franchise history.Angels manager Mike Scioscia told MLB.com that Shoemaker is trying to regain his touch after missing five months with a forearm injury.“There’s going to be some rough spots here or there,” Scioscia said. “He’s, at times, pitching very well, and at times, he’s missing his spots, getting behind and making mistakes. But the stuff is there Sergio Romo Jersey , no doubt. Maybe the command isn’t as consistent as we know it can be with Matt.” The St. Louis Cardinals are trying to get through their weekend series at Detroit without their on-field leader.Catcher Yadier Molina has a mild left hamstring strain and will probably sit out the final two games of the series. The second game of the three-game set will be played Saturday night. Molina suffered the injury on a steal attempt against Washington on Wednesday.Article continues below ...“He got his treatment and said he felt better today than he felt yesterday, so that’s an encouraging sign. But still, it’s something that’s (going to) keep him out of the lineup for some period of time,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt told MLB.com. “We’re not sure what that looks like.”The Cardinals will make a roster addition on Saturday as infielder Jedd Gyorko will come off the 10-day disabled list. Gyorko, who is returning from a left groin strain, won’t be immediately reinserted into the lineup.“He’s at that stage where he’s getting back to activities that will allow him to get back in the lineup,” Shildt told MLB.com.Right-hander Jack Flaherty (8-6, 2.83 ERA) gets the start for St. Louis on Saturday. In August http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , Flaherty went 4-0 while giving up a total of just four earned runs over five starts. His first September outing was a little shaky. He limited Washington to one run and three hits in five innings but issued a season-high five walks. The 22-year-old got a no-decision as the bullpen gave away a two-run lead in the ninth.He’ll be making his first career appearance against Detroit.Tigers starter Matthew Boyd (9-12, 4.24 ERA) has been on a win-one, lose-one roller coaster in his last seven starts. He notched a victory in his last outing on Sunday, holding the New York Yankees to three runs in six innings. His teammates provided eight runs during that span and the Tigers collected an 11-7 win.“It was nice to have had a big lead and to be able to attack,” Boyd said.That was just Boyd’s third win in 12 road decisions. He has been more effective at Comerica Park, going 6-3 with a 2.56 ERA in 12 starts. Boyd, who has never faced the Cardinals, notched wins in his last three home starts while giving up just one run and 12 hits in 20 innings. St. Louis’ bullpen woes continued during the first game of the series http://www.raysfanproshop.com/authentic-evan-longoria-jersey , a 5-3 Tigers victory. Jordan Hicks gave up a game-winning, two-run homer to Jeimer Candelario in the bottom of the ninth.The homer followed a one-out single by No. 9 hitter Victor Reyes.“Really exciting,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Guy out there is throwing 100 miles an hour and Victor slaps one down the left-field line and then Candy steps up and goes opposite on him.”It has been a bad month for St. Louis relievers. Bud Norris lost his closer’s job after blowing saves in back-to-back games.“Those guys are in a pennant race, so it’s exciting for us to take part in stuff like this,” Gardenhire said. “We know how much it means on their side and our guys are fighting and that’s really fun.”
