The last 24 hours have summarized the brilliance of Shohei Ohtani beautifully.
After throwing 117 pitches over seven productive innings in a 3-2 Los Angeles Angels on Friday night, Ohtani showed off his incredible hitting talents on Saturday night.
With the Angels trailing the Texas Rangers 1-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning, Ohtani crushed a three-run homer for his 43rd blast of the season.

The 43 homers lead the majors, three ahead of Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Pérez. And Ohtani is only four homers away from matching the Angels’ single-season record of 47 home runs, set by Troy Glaus in 2000.
