ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani pitched seven strong innings and hit an early RBI single as the Los Angeles Angels earned a 6-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

In his 15th pitching start of the season and second since the All-Star break, Ohtani gave up one run and five hits with five strikeouts.

He has allowed a combined one run in two pitching appearances since participating in the Home Run Derby and starting on the mound in the All-Star Game at Colorado this month.

Jack Mayfield added a two-run homer for the Angels, his third in his last five games.

Raisel Iglesias worked a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save.

Dom Nunez and Brendan Rodgers went deep for Colorado.
