Kodai Senga struck out eight batters to lead the New York Mets to a 5-1 win over the Miami Marlins in his major league debut on Sunday afternoon, while the Los Angeles Angels' Shohei Ohtani hit his first home run of the season.

Senga recorded all eight of his strikeouts with his trademark forkball, a pitch nicknamed the "ghost fork" that drops suddenly as it approaches the plate, in the Mets' victory at Miami's loanDepot park.

The 30-year-old right-hander allowed the first four batters he faced to reach base on two hits and two walks.
