Shohei Ohtani had an RBI triple and a double as he went 2-for-5 Thursday in the Los Angeles Angels' 7-6 defeat against the Texas Rangers, getting multiple hits for the second straight game.

However, the two-way star was unable to add to his home run total of 45 for the eighth straight game. Salvador Perez of the Kansas City Royals leads the majors with 48 homers, followed by Vladimir Guerrero of the Toronto Blue Jays with 46.

Batting second as the designated hitter, Ohtani lined a triple to right off Glenn Otto to drive in the game's opening run and recorded his 99th RBI of the season during the Angels' five-run first inning. He later doubled to left in the sixth.
