Shohei Ohtani reached another milestone on Saturday night, as he smacked a two-run homer -- No. 100 of his career -- in a 9-1 Angels victory. Let's have a look at the whole story.
Ohtani achieved the mark with a two-run blast off A’s right-hander Adam Oller in the fifth inning to give the Angels an 8-1 lead. It came off a first-pitch sinker that Ohtani crushed to center field; it left the bat at 110.1 mph and went a projected 418 feet, per Statcast.
"One hundred is a big number and I'm proud of it, but it's early in the season, so that's what I'm focused on right now,”
“I just want to keep it going. Early in my career, I went through a lot of injuries and surgeries, but I made it back strong and I'm planning on hitting more and trying to get better."
Ohtani became the third Japanese player to reach 100 career homers
