Shohei Ohtani just keeps taking his mind-blowing 2021 season to new levels.

On Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles, the Los Angeles Angels’ two-way superstar cranked two more bombs, giving him 30 home runs on the season. He has three more homers than the next-highest mark (27 from Vladimir Guerrero Jr.), and that’s while also throwing 60 innings as a pitcher!

Ohtani set the Angels’ franchise record for homers before the All-Star break when he blasted No. 29 to right field in the bottom of the third inning.

One inning later, Ohtani showed that he has insane power to all fields, with an opposite-field shot for No. 30. This also gave the Angels a 7-6 lead.

Pretty good for a guy that skeptical scouts were comparing to a “high school hitter” just three years ago, right?

Ohtani’s two-homer night comes on the same day he was named AL Player of the Month following an absurd June.

If his start to the month is any indication, he may win that award in July too.
