Shohei Ohtani, in the lineup as a DH, singled in his first major league at-bat on Opening Day Thursday against the Athletics. He swung at a first-pitch fastball from starter Kendall Graveman. The single put runners on first and second with two outs for Martin Maldonado, who then hit an RBI ground-rule double to push the Angels’ lead to 2-0.

Ohtani grounded out in his second at-bat to end the fourth inning.
