Shohei Ohtani hit his 19th and 20th home runs of the season side by side in an away game against the Texas Rangers in the major leagues held in Arlington, Texas, USA on the 13th (Korean time).
With this, Shohei Ohtani became the American League leader in home runs, surpassing Aaron Judge, who remained at 19.
Aaron Judge, who broke the American League home run record with 62 home runs last year and became the league MVP, boasted an overwhelming home run pace this year as well, but recently suffered a bad right big toe and is on the injured list.
The Angels defeated Texas 9-6 thanks to Shohei Ohtani’s last-minute performance.
Shohei Ohtani hit a solo home run to tie the score in the top of the 7th inning with the team trailing 4-5. In the top of the 12th inning of overtime, with the score at 5-5, Shohei Ohtani, who entered the plate with a chance to play second base safely, broke the balance of the game by hitting a two-run home run with a left hand.
