Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani added to his home run total with a two-run shot against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday night.
Wednesday night featured a battle between two American League MVP contenders in Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Los Angeles Angels two-way player Shohei Ohtani. Ohtani led Guerrero in home runs by the count of 37-35 entering the game, but the Angels star added to his cushion.
With the Angels trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the third inning, Ohtani stepped up to the plate with outfielder Jo Adell on first. On the fourth pitch thrown by Blue Jays pitcher Alex Manoah, Ohtani crushed the baseball into the bushes in center field to tie the game at two runs apiece.
Angels: Shohei Ohtani crushed 38th home run of season on Wednesday vs. Blue Jays
That home run was not only Ohtani’s 38th homer of the season, but it was his first recorded in 14 games. Oh, and he did so on the night the Angels’ gave away awesome Ohtani t-shirts to fans attending the game.
With his home run slump officially over, that leaves baseball fans wondering how many more he can hit before the end of the regular-season.
