Watch: Shohei Ohtani gets silent treatment after first career home run

A fan reaches for a ball hit for an inside-the-park home run by Cleveland Indians Edwin Encarnacion along with Los Angeles Angels left fielder Justin Upton during the second inning of a baseball game Monday

Shohei Ohtani hit his first major league home run in his first Angel Stadium at-bat, taking a curtain call after his three-run homer Tuesday night against the Cleveland Indians.

This was Ohtani's second start at designated hitter and his first at home.

Ohtani's homer just cleared the fence in right field, which the Angels had lowered from 18 feet to eight feet during the offseason. Ohtani also smoked a single in the third, his second trip to the plate. Both homers came off Tomlin (0-1), who lasted three innings and gave up eight runs on eight hits and one walk.

He's scheduled to take the mound again for his first home start on Sunday against Oakland. The Angels had $2.315 million in worldwide signing money to offer Ohtani. He had to wait a little while, though, for the first teammate to celebrate it with him Tuesday, as Los Angeles players observed baseball convention by ignoring the Japanese star when he entered the dugout.

Kevin Love, JR Smith to play against Pelicans
The Cavs trailed 57-47 at halftime after getting outscored 28-18 in the second period - and it could have been a lot worse. He stayed down on the court and eventually hobbled to the locker room - with help - with 6:22 left in the third quarter.

The Los Angeles Angels beat the Cleveland Indians by 13-2.

Ohtani will pitch against Oakland on Sunday in his first start at home.

Ohtani picked up a win in his major league pitching debut against the Oakland Athletics, with a fastball that touched 100 miles per hour and some nasty off-speed pitches. According to STATS LLC, the baseball player is remarkably the first to win a starting pitcher, then start and homer as a non-pitcher in his next game in the same season since baseball titan Babe Ruth in 1921. But with a fastball that mirrors that of Noah Syndergaard, and a splitter that looks like Masahiro Tanaka's, the Angels are more than willing to let Ohtani find his way with the bat while taking advantage of his pitching abilities every fifth day. Every move he makes is sure to get dissected by the media.
