Even better yet, he’s given the fans a Sho that they’ll never forget. He’s given the home fans the best performance, this season, however. Angels fans love Ohtani, and Ohtani clearly loves Angels fans.
Shohei Ohtani takes his game to another level when playing in front of LA Angels fans.
When Shohei Ohtani has been at home for the LA Angels this year, he’s made Halo history.
That undefeated record on the bump means everything. He can’t lose in front of us.
And that 2.93 ERA he has on the season was supposed to be incredibly impressive. It pales in comparison to his 1.92 home ERA he’s shown us this year.
And to also make history with his home field home run mark in the process means everything. Part of the reason he’s able to excel at the plate too is that he doesn’t need to sit out of the lineup on gamedays that he pitches.
Just this past Thursday, he went six innings on the mound (only giving up two runs), and went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk, and a run scored.
It’s perfect that more and more fans are coming into the stadium than last year, as Ohtani is giving them memories they’ll never forget.
The Halos are obviously here at home again for this series vs. the Astros, but only have 21 of their remaining 45 games at home.
If the Angels want to get back in the playoff race, the other Angels will have to step up at home. We already know that Ohtani’s going to turn it up in our ballpark.
