Twitter reacts to Shohei Ohtani’s otherworldly performance

Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani

Los Angeles Angels rookie Shohei Ohtani is simply on another level right now. With three homers and seven RBI in his first eight MLB games, the Japanese sensation is dominating from a plate early on his career. But it’s what 23-year-old did on the mound against the division-rival Oakland Athletics on Sunday that has the baseball world abuzz.

Making just his second career regular season start, Ohtani truck out 11 in six perfect innings before A’s shortstop Marcus Semien got a hit off him to lead off the seventh inning. Up to that point, Oakland had swung through an absurd 24 pitches and looked completely over matched against the rookie.

Obviously, this downright dominating performance had those on Twitter talking big time. Here are the best reactions.
