Shohei Ohtani takes home run crown vs. Yankees, and doesn’t stop
By Evan Desai
Shohei Ohtani has been a Yankee killer in this new series for the LA Angels.
He’s hit two home runs today, making them his third of the series, and fourth in the past three days.
He’s hit five in the past five days, and can’t be stopped right now.
LA Angels Designated Hitter Shohei Ohtani now leads the MLB in home runs with 28.
Shohei Ohtani seems to love hitting in Yankee Stadium.
This wasn’t even the reaction to the second tank. Ben Verlander of Fox Sports couldn’t believe what he was seeing in the fifth inning as well.
This is now 11 home runs in his last 13 games. He’s now hit the most home runs that any Angel ever has before the All-Star break.
The All-Star break is in 13 days. He still has so much time.
Yankees fans are winning 10-5, but Ohtani is still a thorn in their side.
It’s expected at this point. All LA Times beat writer Jack Harris can do is just sit back and laugh.
Ohtani continues to prove his case that he is undoubtedly the AL MVP right now, and anyone denying that has lost their minds. Let’s face it, they lost their minds a long time ago. How can somebody be this good offensively and still be an Ace on the mound?
Ohtani’s performance this year has been unfair. I don’t know how it’s legal. He’s essentially a cheat code.
Ohtani announced that he will be participating in the Home Run Derby come next month, but it’s basically a Home Run Derby all season for Ohtani.
Seriously though, he’s now on pace for 58 home runs this year.
