Still, naysayers are already becoming increasingly hard to locate when the subject turns to the Angels' youthful two-way phenom, Shohei Ohtani.

The 23-year-old right-hander had his slider working and clocked 160 kilometers per hour with his fastball, striking out five consecutive batters at one point.

Ohtani has a 3.58 earned-run average over 32 2/3 innings on the mound.

Minnesota Twins reliever Trevor Hildenberger and catcher Mitch Garver were trying to figure out how to handle Albert Pujols' at-bat with Mike Trout in scoring position in the bottom of the 11th inning, only to realize that manager Paul Molitor had already intentionally walked the Los Angeles Angels' slugger.

Morrison got two hits and that key walk against Ohtani while the rest of Minnesota's lineup struggled mightily against the Japanese star. He was the only Twins starter who didn't strike out at least once. Pujols struck out with runners on second and third to end the inning. On the other side of the ball, he is sporting a superb slash line of.348/.392/.652 to go along with five home runs and 16 RBIs.

It was a scheduled day off for Trout, who had started all 39 of the Angels' games this season before sitting Sunday. The Gold Glove catcher is 14 for 24 since his 0-for-34 hitless streak ended May 1. The April 8 meeting was postponed by cold.

Monday: The Angels face the Houston Astros at 10:07 p.m.at home. The Halos won two of three against their AL West rivals last month in Houston.
