WATCH VIDEO: Shohei Ohtani hits home run in third straight game for Angels | CCTV News
He’s Sho-ing off at this point.
Angeles rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani homered in his third straight game on Friday night against the Athletics.
He launched the 449-foot blast off of Daniel Gossett in the second inning. It landed in the rocks beyond the center field wall at Angel Stadium and was measured with a 112.3 mph exit velocity according to Statcast.
The homer lifted Ohtani to 6 for 11 (.545) with six RBIs at home. The 23-year-old is scheduled to pitch against Oakland on Sunday in his first home start, making it uncertain if he will get a chance to extend his homer streak to four games on Saturday.
