Baseball: Ohtani gets double, 3 walks as Angels snap 4-game skid

Shohei Ohtani reached base four times and scored a run in the Los Angeles Angels' 3-1 win over the New York Mets on Friday, going 1-for-2 with a double and three walks.

The two-way star continued to be the Angels' designated hitter two days after being diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow that prevents him from pitching again this season.

The Angels ended their losing streak at four games.

Mets right-hander Kodai Senga (10-7) suffered his seventh loss after striking out 10 and allowing two runs on four hits in 6-2/3 innings at Citi Field.

Senga walked Ohtani twice while allowing a third-inning double to the Japanese compatriot.

Patrick Sandoval (7-10) threw six innings of one-run ball for the Angels.

In other action, San Diego Padres right-hander Yu Darvish (8-10) gave up five runs in four innings of work in a 7-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.
