ANAHEIM Dave Parker Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani hit a majestic three-run homer a few hours after he pitched a simulated game. Mike Trout followed Ohtani’s blast two innings later with the first homer of his emotional August.And those weren’t even the important hits in a wild comeback victory for the Los Angeles Angels.Eric Young Jr. put the Angels ahead with a two-run single during their five-run eighth inning, and Los Angeles blew a three-run lead before rallying to snap its six-game skid with a 10-7 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Monday night.Ohtani and Trout connected early on a night when the Big A played a bit like Coors Field. After DJ LeMahieu’s first career grand slam put the Rockies up 7-5 in the eighth, the struggling Angels improbably rallied in the bottom of the inning to steal a win from Colorado, which missed the chance to pull into a tie for first place in the NL West.“Mathematically we’re still in it, but those guys are right in the thick of it,” Young said. “So I know we just don’t want to give it to them, and I’m sure other teams that are in the race also appreciate us going out there and giving it everything we’ve got.”Trout had an RBI single during a four-run fourth inning by the Angels, driving in his first run of August. Ohtani capped the rally with a huge shot to left-center, the 15th homer of the season by the two-way rookie star.“Mike Trout always gets on base in front of me, and as long as I can get on base, it can lead to a big inning,” said Ohtani Josh Harrison Jersey , who added a single in the eighth for his fifth multihit game in August.Trout added a sixth-inning solo homer, his 31st of the season, in the two-time AL MVP’s fourth game back from a 19-game absence due to an injured right wrist and his brother-in-law’s death.Moments after LeMahieu’s dramatic homer in the eighth, Los Angeles loaded the bases against Adam Ottavino (6-3) and got a run on Andrelton Simmons‘ sacrifice fly. Three batters later, Young capped an eight-pitch at-bat with a two-out, bases-loaded single to center on a full-count pitch from Seunghwan Oh.The Angels, who sent 11 men to the plate and drew five walks in the eighth, added two insurance runs on Rockies shortstop Trevor Story’s throwing error.“Getting the big swing from DJ was awesome,” Colorado manager Bud Black said. “We sort of gave it back to them with the walks.”After both bullpens flopped mightily in the eighth inning, Noe Ramirez calmly pitched the ninth without incident for his first career save.Tony Wolters hit an early homer for the Rockies (71-60), but their bullpen wasted the chance to match the Diamondbacks’ record for the second time in three days. Colorado opened a six-game California road trip by losing for the third time in four games, and for the 11th time in its last 12 interleague meetings with the Angels.DJ SLAMLeMahieu doubled and scored in the seventh Gregory Polanco Jersey , and he drove a hanging curveball from Jim Johnson (5-3) into the short porch down the left-field line in the eighth after the Angels’ bullpen walked the bases loaded. The homer was LeMahieu’s 12th of the season, setting a new career high for the veteran second baseman.10 SHADES OF GRAYJon Gray pitched seven-hit ball into the seventh inning, and the Rockies’ late rally prevented him from losing for the first time since June 12. Colorado failed to win for the first time in Gray’s last 10 starts, leaving him even with Ubaldo Jimenez’s run in 2010 for the longest such streak in franchise history.TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: Tyler Anderson’s next start will be pushed back while he works on mechanical issues, manager Bud Black said. Anderson is 0-4 with an 11.39 ERA in August, and he got just two outs against St. Louis on Sunday. Gray is likely to take Anderson’s next scheduled start at San Diego on Saturday.Angels: Ohtani threw 50 pitches over three innings in a simulated game during the afternoon at Angel Stadium. The two-way sensation hasn’t pitched in a real game since June 6, but he would like to return to the mound during Los Angeles’ final 30 games. Manager Mike Scioscia said Ohtani will throw in the bullpen later this week before the Angels determine his next step.UP NEXTRockies: Kyle Freeland (11-7, 2.96 ERA) has never lost in seven career starts against AL teams, posting a 1.81 ERA.Angels: After the game, Scioscia announced that Ramirez will make his first start of the season after 60 relief appearances. Ramirez will become the first player in Angels history to start the next game after earning a save. With the Baltimore Orioles needing to make changes for the future as they endure a disastrous 2018 season, reliever Zach Britton was traded to the New York Yankees, the Orioles announced.Jon Heyman of Fancred.com first reported the two teams agreed to a deal. He added that Double-A right-hander Dillon Tate is one of the pieces likely headed to Baltimore in return.Per Joel Sherman of the New York Post Jung-ho Kang Jersey , the Orioles' return will also likely include Triple-A left-hander Josh Rogers and Triple-A reliever Cody Carroll. Sherman added that while all deals aren't done until the physicals are reviewed, the trade has been agreed upon.The Orioles already signaled they were looking ahead to 2019 and beyond when they traded Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 18 for a package of five prospects.Britton didn't make his 2018 debut until June 12 after rupturing his Achilles in December. The southpaw is still rounding back into shape with a 3.45 ERA, 13 strikeouts and 10 walks in 15.2 innings.Last season was a struggle for Britton because of injuries. He had two separate stints on the disabled list because of a strained left forearm, including a two-month spell from an appearance on May 4 to his return on July 5.Britton was one of the best relievers in Major League Baseball in 2016. He finished fourth in American League Cy Young voting after leading the league with 47 saves and posting a 0.54 ERA with 74 strikeouts and 38 hits allowed in 67 innings.The big key for Britton's success two years ago was his emphasized use of the cutter, as noted by ESPN's Jayson Stark in March."Britton went from featuring the sinker about 67 percent of the time in 2013 to more than 90 percent in each of the past three seasons," Stark wrote. "The results were mind-blowing. He allowed just 32 balls in the air all of the past season. Even the hitters don't understand how that can happen."Britton relied on the pitch even more in 2017, throwing it a career-high 94.7 percent of the time, per FanGraphs. He was still effective but not as dominant, with a 2.89 ERA in 37.1 innings. His strikeouts per nine innings of 7.0 was his lowest total since 2013 (4.1).The Orioles likely knew there was a chance they would part ways with Britton, who is going to be a free agent after this season. They sit in last place in the American League East, so having a reliever who has battled injuries for two years in a lame duck year doesn't do anything to help them now or in the future.Tate is the key piece in the deal from Baltimore's side. He was a first-round pick by the Texas Rangers in 2015 and has posted a 3.38 ERA in 15 starts this season. MLB.com ranked him as New York's ninth-best prospect in 2018, noting he could end up in the bullpen because his excellent stuff doesn't miss as many bats as it should.Despite the injury risk Francisco Cervelli Jersey , the Yankees are betting on him being able to turn things around after struggling to stay on the field last season.The Yankees didn't necessarily need to upgrade their bullpen. Their current group of relievers ranks first in MLB with a 2.75 ERA, 448 strikeouts and .199 batting average against.Starting pitching seemed like a better focus for New York, but with a soft market lacking impact in that role, being able to shorten games with another power arm out of the bullpen gives manager Aaron Boone a lot of options to pick from.Britton adds a left-handed presence in the back of New York's bullpen, along with closer Aroldis Chapman. The rest of the primary relievers are all right-handers like David Robertson, Chad Green, Dellin Betances and Adam Warren.The Yankees' addition of Britton allows Boone to play matchups however he wants as his team continues its march toward the postseason.
