A record-breaker. That’s the story of Shohei Ohtani (29) of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Ohtani went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, one home run, one RBI and one run scored while batting second in the lineup against the Colorado Rockies on April 24 at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado, USA. Ohtani’s 25th home run of the season puts him atop the Major League Baseball home run leaderboard.
He is two behind second-place Pete Alonso (New York Mets). Six behind Aaron Judge (New York Yankees) for second in the American League. 토토사이트
With his 152nd MLB home run, Ohtani also surpassed the 200-homer mark in his U.S.-Japan career. Ohtani hit 48 home runs while playing for the Nippon Ham Fighters of Nippon Professional Baseball.
“Ohtani’s 25 home runs in just 75 games in his first season as a hitter is the second-fastest in Angels franchise history,” Japanese outlet Junichi Sports reported, according to Canadian outlet TSN.
But the first record was also set by Ohtani. The reigning American League MVP hit 25 homers in 72 games in 2021.
The numbers show that Ohtani’s home run pace is off the charts.
“At a 25-homer pace in 75 games, he could hit 52 home runs in a season. That would surpass his career high in home runs. His previous best was 46 in 2021.”
He also has a lot of power. In June alone, he hit 10 home runs. In 20 games. That’s one home run every two games. That’s the most of any major league player 메이저도메인. Eddie Rosario (Atlanta) is second with eight homers.
“At his June pace, he could surpass the American League record of 62 homers set by Judge last season, a mark that stood for 61 years. Sixty-seven homers would be third all-time.”
