On Tuesday night, Los Angeles Angels’ two-way player Shohei Ohtani hit his first career MLB home run. He didn’t wait long to hit home run No. 2.
With the Angels trailing the Cleveland Indians 2-0 in the fifth inning, Ohtani stepped into the box against the reigning and two-time Cy Young Award winner, Corey Kluber. Ohtani ripped the ball to straightaway center field and 400 feet later, the game was tied.
Are you serious?! Shohei Ohtani with ANOTHER HOME RUN.

Ohtani seems to have overcome a bad spring training.
Angels Stadium isn’t known as a hitter’s park. Far from it, in fact. So, any home run there is certainly impressive. Taking a pitcher of Kluber’s caliber deep and to center field, is even more impressive.
