Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels makes no mistakes.
Shohei Ohtani, the MLB’s home run king, hit another home run in his first at-bat for the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.
Yeah, it’s amazing, godlike, and unreal, but most importantly, it feels anticipated at this stage.
Ohtani is unfailingly accurate.
Ohtani now has 14 home runs on the season. The Angels have now played 40 games.
Yes, if he keeps hitting like this, he’ll hit over 55 home runs this season.
This season, a pitcher is on track to hit over 55 home runs…
Additionally, the pitcher has a 2.10 ERA.
The pitcher also appears to be the obvious favourite for AL MVP.
Mike Trout, the other MVP candidate for the Halos, did not play tonight. This, combined with the Indians’ five-run first inning, threw a dark cloud over the game.
In the first inning, Ohtani made sure the dark cloud left Anaheim easily.
Ohtani is a force to be reckoned with. He currently has 14 home runs, 33 RBI, and a batting average of. No. 273.
That is, at the plate. As if that weren’t enough, he’ll start on the mound tomorrow, where he has a 2.10 ERA and ranks second in the MLB among starters with 14 strikeouts per nine innings.
Last week, he also saw action in the outfield. What we’re seeing is something we can never forget. It’s possible we’ll never see it again.
Somebody is going to have to step up with Mike Trout hitting the IL today, and I’ll never bet against Ohtani to rise to the occasion.
