Otani’s 36th homer of the season Bang MLB’s solo lead
Shohei Otani, a Japanese player who plays for the Los Angeles Angels in the Major League Baseball (MLB), had his 36th touch of the season.
Otani scored a home run against the 2021 MLB Colorado Rockies at Anaheim Angel Stadium in California on the 28th (Hinguk time).
Otani, who started as the second designated hitter, fired a big two-run shot over the right-center fence against Colorado left-hander Austin Gomber in the bottom of the fifth inning when his team was being dragged 0-10.
It was an unfavorable ball count for the 1B-2S, but he did not miss the slider heading to the center. It was such a big hit that he could tell it was a home run with a hit.
Otani, who reported his 36th home run of the season, ranked first in the home run category, four times ahead of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Toronto Blue Jays, 32 times).
