MLB: Two home runs and Shohei Ohtani’s dominance on the mound against the White Sox

MLB: Two home runs and Shohei Ohtani’s dominance on the mound against the White Sox

Shohei Ohtani has a good offensive performance when he also plays as a pitcher. On Tuesday night, Otani contributed on offense and defense in the Los Angeles Angels’ 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

In addition to pitching just over six innings, Ohtani hit two homers to extend his lead into the top of MLB in that regard. This was the third time in his last four posts.

He became the first pitcher since Rick Wise in August 1973 to homer in at least three games in the same month.

“I think I put on a good show today and this year when I’ve been playing well, I usually hit well. I’m trying to keep up the pace,” Otani said via an interpreter.

On the mound, Otani limited White Sox hitters to four hits and runs as well as passing 10 batters into the glove. It was the sixth time this season that the Japanese had at least 10 strikeouts. Ohtani was eventually pulled from the game after totaling 102 runs, spread over six and three work innings.

“I felt good, but I wanted to finish in the seventh round. I’m happy to win,” Otani said.

Ohtani’s game started strongly in the first set. After striking out the first three batters he faced in his pitcher’s role, including two in batters, Otani sent a pitch from Michael Kubis 418 feet from the plate, opening the scoring with his 27th homer of the season.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, moments after he was pulled off the mound, Otani returned to bat with the Angels only leading by one run. This time, it was Touki Toussaint who fell victim to the power of the Japanese, who hit his second homer of the game to restore the two-run leadoff to Los Angeles.

With two long balls, Otani now holds a three-run homer on Matt Olson (25) for the Majors’ lead.

Mike Moustakas and David Fletcher both raced for the Angels.

The outcome could have been different for the Angels, who played with fire in the ninth inning. After allowing a run, which closed the gap to 4-2, the Angels allowed Chicago to fill in the passes. However, they managed three straight goals to end the game.
