During his eight-game hit streak, he had multiple hits in six of those, including a 3-for-5 performance on Friday night with two doubles and a home run. For the season, Ohtani is hitting .343 with 10 doubles, one triple, four homers and 10 RBI. In 15 career games against San Diego, he has two doubles, two homers and six RBI.

Outfielder Teoscar Hernandez has been red hot of late and has hits in eight of the past nine games, including six in a row. In Saturday's win, Hernandez was 1-for-3 with a walk. He had two hits, including a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 3-2 loss at Minnesota.
