Shohei Ohtani wasn’t enough to prevent his team from losing.

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Shohei Ohtani (30) hit a home run, stole a base and drove in two runs, but it wasn’t enough to prevent his team from losing.

Against Washington left-hander Mitchell Parker, who was making his major league debut, Ohtani struck first in the first inning. With the count 2-1, he took Parker’s four-pitch, low 80.6 mph (129.7 km/h) curveball for a single into right field. Ohtani then advanced to third on Freddie Freeman’s single to right and scored on Will Smith’s sacrifice fly to center field. Tied 1-1.

In the sixth inning, Parker led off with a full count against right-hander Matt Barnes.

His third stolen base of the season. After advancing to third on a wild pitch, Ohtani stole home on Smith’s grounder to third after Freeman struck out.

The final at-bat of the seventh inning was disappointing. With runners on first and second and two outs, he took a good look at right-hander Hunter Harvey’s 98.6 mph (158.7 km/h) four-seam fastball five pitches outside the zone, but it was a line drive out to center field.

The Dodgers scored a run in the eighth on Teoscar Hernandez’s double and Max Muncy’s RBI single, but fell 6-4. Two straight losses after snapping a two-game losing streak. Despite going 1-4 in their last five games, they are still in first place in the National League West with an 11-8 record (.579 winning percentage).
