Shohei Ohtani blasted his 45th home run of the season on Tuesday night, and it was (appropriately) a 445-foot shot.

The Los Angeles Angels’ two-way star obliterated a pitch from Houston Astros pitcher Cristian Javier, and sent it well beyond the right field wall with an exit velocity of 116.1 mph.

At 45 homers, Ohtani trails only Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Salvador Pérez, who each have 46.

And along with the incredible hitting, he also has a terrific 3.28 ERA in 123 1/3 innings pitched. It’s been an absolutely unbelievable season for Ohtani.
