It’s been an eventful week-plus to begin the 2021 MLB season. Let’s get right to the best moments before the power rankings, which have a ton of movement after the first few series of the year.

 

Joe Musgrove throws the first no-hitter in Padres history.

 

 

Shohei Ohtani bats second while pitching (first player in over 100 years to bat second as a starting pitcher) in the American League, hits home run in his first at-bat.

 

 

Sunday Night Baseball controversy: Phillies score go-ahead run in the ninth inning on play where it appears Alec Bohm did not touch homeplate.

 

 

Twins’ Byron Buxton off to scorching start, hitting .481 with five home runs and an eight-game hitting streak to start the season.

 

 

Dodgers get their World Series rings, defending champs off to 8-2 start.
