The Japanese star pitcher and hitter was scheduled to throw two innings in his start Saturday, but was taken out after giving up two hits and two walks in 1 1/3 innings during a 6-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia didn’t put Ohtani in the batting order.

The 23-year-old righty struck out two and his fastball reached 97 mph. He allowed one run, on a homer by Brewers outfielder Keon Broxton. Ohtani threw 31 pitches, 17 for strikes.

Outfielder Kyle Wren had three hits for the Brewers, while second baseman Jonathan Villar had two.
