DETROIT — Shohei Ohtani’s strong start was undone by two rain delays and two rough outings by Angels relievers.

After a second rain delay ended Ohtani’s night, relievers Cam Bedrosian and Jim Johnson gave up five runs in the sixth inning of what would become a 6-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night.

Bedrosian gave up a hit to the first batter he faced, followed by a walk and a hit batter to load the bases. After a strikeout, he gave up a two-run single to José Iglesias, ending his night and putting the Angels behind 3-1.

Johnson entered and gave up two more hits, the deficit growing to 6-1.

It all prompted calls of “Rally Goose,” from the rain-soaked Tigers fans, who had just witnessed an odd spectacle.

A goose had parked itself in right field during the night’s second rain delay. After the grounds crew came to chase it away, the goose took off and flew directly into a scoreboard on the first-base side, plummeting to the lower deck about 10 rows behind the Angels dugout. Some fans and ballpark staff attended to the goose, and the Tigers soon announced that the bird was OK, safely set free outside the ballpark.

As the ballpark was still buzzing from that odd sight, Bedrosian was imploding. Although Bedrosian has struggled to find his consistency ever since coming back from the disabled list last summer, he had allowed just two runs in his previous 8-1/3 innings.

Bedrosian’s disappointing game wasted the five innings from Ohtani.

Pitching his first game since May 20, after the Angels gave him a few extra days for “workload management,” Ohtani gave up one run on three hits, with five strikeouts. His night ended after a 41-minute rain delay, the second of the night.

Ohtani came out of the gate throwing 92-94 mph in the first inning. He gave up two walks and a hit and a run. After that, he showed that he could increase his velocity to get out of a jam.

He threw a 98 mph fastball to get Victor Martinez on a pop-up, ending the third. In the fifth, after a 23-minute rain delay, Ohtani got into a two-out jam on a walk and a double. He then turned it up again, throwing pitches at 99 mph and 101 mph – his hardest pitch of the season – to get Jeimer Candelario on a bouncer back to the mound.

Unfortunately for the Angels, that was Ohtani’s last pitch of the night.
