Los Angeles Angels two-way threat Shohei Ohtani is must-watch television, and on Wednesday he’ll get some national coverage. MLB Network is hosting the day’s matchup between the Angels and San Francisco Giants in Anaheim. First pitch is set for 4:07 p.m. ET and will air locally on Bally Sports West in the Angels market and NBC Sports Bay Area in the Giants market.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this MLB matchup, you can stream the game via MLBNetwork.com and via the MLB app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access MLB Network for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

Ohtani will be facing off against Kevin Gausman in one of the best pitching matchups we’ll see this week. Gausman is 8-1 with a 1.51 ERA and 0.77 WHIP, and would be starting the All Star Game for the National League if not for Jacob deGrom. Ohtani is 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. Whether he makes the AL All Star roster as a pitcher is uncertain, but the two-way dynamo is the leader at the designated hitter spot in voting. He has a slash line of .269/.355/.640 and is tied for the MLB lead with 23 home runs.

The Giants are a -125 favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, while the Angels are +107 underdogs. Total runs is installed at 8 with the over juiced to -120.
