It’s a GOD tani. More cartoonish than cartoonish.
Shohei Ohtani, 28, of the Los Angeles Angels of America’s professional baseball team, took sole possession of first place in the American League (AL) with his 13th “multi-homer” game. He surpassed New York Yankees home run king Aaron Judge.
Ohtani hit his 19th and 20th home runs of the season during the visiting Texas Rangers’ 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) game at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, U.S., on March 13. With his 19th, he moved into first place in the AL home run lead by one.
Ohtani’s bat was on fire when it mattered. He took his team’s victories into his own hands.
Batting second in the lineup, Ohtani hit the game-winning home run in the top of the seventh inning with his team trailing 5-4. Facing Texas right-hander Grant Anderson, Ohtani took a two-pitch sinking fastball low to the body and scooped it up with an upper swing, sending it over the center field fence. The ball sailed lightly over the fence. He also turned heads by performing a “bat flip,” in which he flipped the bat with his right hand. Game 19.메이저놀이터
After tying the game, Ohtani hit the game-winning home run. He homered again in the top of the 12th inning of extra innings, tied 5-5. Stepping to the plate with the bases loaded, Ohtani crushed a high cut fastball from left-hander Cole Lagans over the left field fence. It was his 20th home run of the season. The Angels went on to win 9-6, and Ohtani went 2-for-4 with two home runs, four RBIs, and one walk. It was a perfect “hitter’s day,” and he raised his season batting average to .291 (75-for-258).
