ANAHEIM http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-delino-deshields-jersey , Calif. (AP) — Kole Calhoun and Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia were surprised to find out just how long the right fielder’s hitless streak really was, considering how good a second half of the season he’s had.On Sunday, Calhoun broke out of his 0-for-25 slump in a big way.Calhoun hit a tiebreaking home run and Justin Upton homered in his third straight game as the Angels avoided a four-game sweep with a 4-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners.“There were some good swings in there. You definitely feel it,” Calhoun said of the hitless streak. “If you put a good swing on the ball you definitely feel like it should be a hit but sometimes it’s not and that’s just the game.”Calhoun’s solo drive with two out in the seventh inning off reliever Nick Vincent (3-4) was his 19th home run.“I didn’t even realize it was (25) to be honest with you,” Scioscia said. “He’s been hitting the ball hard since he came back. Little surprised to hear it was 0-for-25. It was a good time for it and it was a big hit.”Calhoun also had a stint on the disabled list with a right oblique strain in June, but after a slow start to the season, he turned things around.Upton extended his home run streak with a three-run shot in the third, giving the Angels a 3-1 lead. Upton has hit four home runs in his last three games. The homer was Upton’s 30th of the season and marked his third consecutive season of at least 30 home runs.Shohei Ohtani appeared to be limping as he jogged off the field in the eighth inning after he slid awkwardly into second base and was caught stealing.“He tweaked his ankle a little bit, but you know I don’t think there will be any issues with it,” Scioscia said. “He slid a bit late and awkward. He’ll be fine for Tuesday.”Taylor Cole (2-2) got the win, and Ty Buttrey struck out the side in the ninth inning to earn his third save. The rookie is making a strong case to pitch in the back end of the bullpen next season.“That was awesome, punching out the side in the ninth,” Calhoun said. “He’s been huge for us. Going forward, he seems like he’s going to be a really, really big piece.”Seattle’s Daniel Vogelbach hit a first-pitch, two-run homer off starter Jaime Barria to tie the game at 3-all in the fourth inning.Barria allowed three runs on six hits in five innings. He was not involved in the decision.Starter Marco Gonzales, who was 5-0 in his five previous starts against the Angels this season, was not involved in the decision, either. Gonzales allowed three runs on six hits in five innings. He struck out six and walked two.“Marco wasn’t quite as sharp as he was last time out,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “You’ve got to give him a ton of credit. He gutted it out and got through the five innings and gave us a chance in a tie ballgame. In the starts he makes down the stretch, we’re not going to overextend him, but I think it’s important he continues to pitch and finishes the season strong.”Second baseman David Fletcher left the game with a left hamstring strain in the first inning. He hit a double to left and just before he got to first, he did a stutter step and appeared to suffer the injury before he got to the bag. He jogged to second base. Manager Mike Scioscia and a trainer went to check on him, and he was taken out of the game after a quick conversation.“He’ll be evaluated (Monday) Joey Gallo Jersey ,” Scioscia said. “Naturally, any time you tweak a hamstring with two weeks to go in the season it’s not good.”Fletcher said he will not go on the team’s road trip to Oakland and Houston. He’s not sure about his status for the remainder of the season.The Angels Mike Trout was given a rare day off Sunday.Mitch Haniger hit a run-scoring double and was 2-for-4 for Seattle.HELPING HANDHailey Dawson, an 8-year-old from Las Vegas, threw out the ceremonial first pitch with her robotic hand. She had the rare opportunity to have Trout catch for her because he wasn’t in the lineup Sunday. She dabbed after Trout caught her pitch, then he gave her a hug. Dawson completed a ceremonial first pitch at all 30 MLB stadiums this season, and her ceremonial pitch at Angel Stadium was the final one.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: LHP James Paxton (pneumonia) was to play long toss Sunday in Seattle, and if all goes well he’s expected to join the team in Houston on Monday. … RHP Felix Hernandez (hamstring) is still in Seattle, but is expected to join the team on the road trip.Angels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (left adductor strain) was scheduled to throw in the bullpen on Sunday in an attempt to start again before the regular season ends Sept. 30.UP NEXTMariners: LHP Wade LeBlanc (8-4, 3.56) will start Monday in Houston. The Mariners are 15-9 when he starts, but he’s 1-1 with a 6.32 ERA in nine career appearances against the Astros.Angels: RHP Felix Pena (3-4, 3.75) will start Tuesday in Oakland. Pena threw six scoreless innings to earn a win against Texas. He is 0-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two career games (one start) against Oakland. A third-round pick by the Miami Marlins in 2014, Brian Anderson wasn't popping on too many star radars heading into the season.The 25-year-old got an opening with one of baseball's most aggressively rebuilding teams, though, and he's made the most of it.With a .284/.366/.420 slash line and the ability to play capable defense at third base and in right field, Anderson leads all rookies in fWAR.The fact he plies his trade for a Marlins team that is years away from contention and wasn't a sparkling prospect dims his light a bit, but results are results.The Fish reeled in a keeper.No. 6: RHP Jack Flaherty, St. Louis Cardinals3 of 8Dilip Vishwanat/Getty ImagesThe St. Louis Cardinals hold only a slim chance of making the postseason in 2018 in a National League Central that's dominated by the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers and a Senior Circuit that features a bevy of postseason contenders.What the Cards dohave going for them is a stable of young stud pitchers, led by right-hander Jack Flaherty.In 90.1 innings, the 22-year-old has struck out 111 while posting a 3.49 ERA. On Sunday, he twirled six scoreless frames against the division-rival Pittsburgh Pirates and earned warranted praise from his rival skipper."That's the best game we've seen him pitch," Bucs manager Clint Hurdle said, per MLB.com's Jennifer Langosch. "The slider played the best we've seen it, and that made everything else tougher to hit. The fastball was tougher to hit, but the slider played extremely well http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-nomar-mazara-jersey , especially to left-handed hitters."The 34th overall pick in the 2014 amateur draft, Flaherty's ceiling may not reach the stratosphere. But he should be the next St. Louis prospect to make good and deliver significant results at the highest level.No. 5: 3B Miguel Andujar, New York Yankees4 of 8Julie Jacobson/Associated PressSo we arrive at the first of two New York Yankees on this list.Miguel Andujar didn't trail as much hype as other Yanks youngsters heading into 2018, but all he's done is hit .292 with 14 homers and 48 RBI at the hot corner in the Bronx."I think we're kind of witnessing the continued emergence of what's going to be a really good hitter in this league for a long time," manager Aaron Boone said, per Newsday's Owen O'Brien. "He's a tough out for us wherever we put him in the order."Few, if any, penciled in the 23-year-old Dominican as the immediate answer at third for New York. There are cautionary flags, including a .325 batting average on balls in play that outpaces his Steamer projection by 26 points.On the other hand, Andujar is posting All-Star-quality production in pinstripes and marching toward the postseason. What's not to love?No. 4: Of Ronald Acuna Jr., Atlanta Braves5 of 8Mike Stobe/Getty ImagesThe Atlanta Braves are blossoming ahead of schedule, and Ronald Acuna Jr. has been an exciting part of the overachieving youth movement.The burgeoning Venezuelan, who won't turn 21 until December 18 and tantalized this spring, has hit 11 homers with an .830 OPS in 56 games for the Braves. He's also hit .364 with a 1.053 OPS in August.There's always room for backsliding with players his age. The Braves, in general, feel like they may be burning a tad brighter than they're capable of and setting their fans up for some mild temporary disappointment.That's just a hunch, though. According to the standings, Atlanta is in the thick of the NL playoff hunt. And according to the stats, eyeball test and big league output, Acuna is a scintillating soon-to-be star.No. 3: INF Gleyber Torres, New York Yankees6 of 8Julie Jacobson/Associated PressGleyber Torres has failed to find his stroke since returning from a strained hip. He's suffered some missteps in the field."Sometimes I try to make plays and I don't," Torres said, per Dan Martin of the New York Post. "I've missed a couple plays and I feel bad. I just try to be professional, but I'm human and I'm trying to get better."Torres has already been pretty dang good Ferguson Jenkins Jersey , though. Injuries and fleeting lapses aside, he's hitting .279 with 17 home runs in 73 games and has appeared, for significant stretches, like a generational stud.Keep in mind, he's 21 years old.Even as they push to win their 28th title, the Yanks will exhibit patience. As they ought to. Torres is young, but he's deployed the tools and results to suggest he's the heir apparent to a Bronx infield that's produced more than a few current and future Hall of Famers.No. 2: OF Juan Soto, Washington Nationals7 of 8Stacy Revere/Getty ImagesWith Bryce Harper's foray into free agency fast approaching, the Washington Nationals have two palatable options: Go all-in to re-sign their franchise player or anoint an heir apparent.Option two sounds a lot more plausible in light of Juan Soto's 2018 bust-out.In 65 games with with the Nats, Soto is hitting .313 with a .984 OPS and 13 home runs. Did we mention he's 19 years old?Does this mean Soto will replace Harper in the hearts and minds of D.C. baseball fans and lead the Nationals to the promised land? Not necessarily.Should the fact that a teenager is doing what he's doing while posting a .962 August OPS pique your interest and inspire dreams of a generational stud in the offing?Absolutely.No. 1: RHP/DH Shohei Ohtani, Los Angeles Angels8 of 8Tony Dejak/Associated PressAh, Shohei Ohtani. How you confound.The two-way Japanese star was the most intriguing prize of the offseason before agreeing to a deal with the Los Angeles Angels, a big-market-adjacent squad.Then he had a rough spring and there was talk of a bust. Then he got off to a strong start on the mound and with the bat in the regular season and the Babe Ruth comparisons returned. Then an elbow issue put him on the shelf for a bit and derailed his pitching until further notice.Here's what we know: Ohtani posted a 3.10 ERA and averaged 11.1 strikeouts per nine innings in 49.1 frames. He's also posted an .858 OPS and 11 homers in 209 plate appearances.The 24-year-old has the tools and, now, the early results to be a front-line starting hurler anda force with the lumber.Will he hold up? Will his elbow and other body parts ultimately betray him and either force him to pick a gig (hitter vs. pitcher) or hang it up prematurely?That's possible.If we're looking at the intersection of ability, early results, location (yeah, it'd be better if he were on the Los Angeles Dodgers, but still) and intangibles, no 2018 rookie has a higher ceiling for stardom than Ohtani, and it's not especially close.
