What more can you say about Shohei Ohtani?

On Tuesday night, Ohtani drove in a career-high *eight* runs as a hitter. He crushed two three-run homers, including a game-tying blast in the ninth.

And on Wednesday night, the unbelievable two-way star put his pitching talents on display.

Ohtani threw eight scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and striking out a career-high 13 batters in the Los Angeles Angels‘ 5-0 win over the Kansas City Royals. The right-hander showed off a nasty splitter and curveball, and he touched 100 mph on the radar gun — deep into the game — with the fastball.

The Royals started the game with two singles. After that, Ohtani threw eight no-hit innings.

Ohtani becomes the first player in MLB history to have both 13 strikeouts and an eight-RBI game in an *entire career*. And he accomplished this feat over consecutive nights! Insane.

Additionally, Ohtani singled and walked twice at the plate on Wednesday night. He should’ve reached base four times, but the home plate umpire called him out on a 3-2 pitch that was off the plate.

Ohtani is a once-in-a-lifetime baseball talent, and he showed why over his last two games.
