He completed seven scoreless innings with six hits, no walks, and 11 strikeouts; a masterpiece we have come to expect from him every time he toes the rubber.
During his outing, he had a hilarious moment that reminded us he is actually one of a kind.
“TOTALLY relatable moment being a starting pitcher and forgetting to take your batting gloves out of your back pocket before going out to pitch,” Cut4 tweeted this afternoon, with a video of Ohtani almost going to the mound with his batting gloves.

It’s funny because, starting from 2022, it couldn’t really happen to any other guy!
Pitchers are no longer hitting, and he remains the only dual-threat on an MLB active roster at the moment.
He Is A True Joy To Watch At The Plate And On The Mound
Ohtani continues to gift us with unforgettable moments, both on the field and often off it, too.
He is the global ambassador for the sport, he is always smiling, and he likes to play jokes on his teammates and even fans.
He has a great sense of humor and, most importantly, enjoys being in the spotlight.
But he is also a beast on the field.
With his phenomenal outing against the Sox, his ERA decreased from 4.19 to 3.12 in five outings.
In 26 frames, he has managed to strike out 41 hitters and has a pristine 1.04 WHIP.
With him leading the rotation, and mashing home runs as the Angels’ regular designated hitter, Los Angeles looks well-positioned to make some noise this year.
