With the Detroit Tigers in town on Monday night, the Los Angeles Angels‘ bats busted out.
Led by Ohtani and Mike Trout, the Halos dismantled the Tigers, winning by a 10-0 final.
We’ve all grown accustomed to Ohtani making history at this point, and with a two-homer game last night, the two-way superstar made a little more history.
It was his 12th career multi-home run game, and sixth of this season.
That ties Angels legend Troy Glaus for the most in a single season by an Angels hitter.
Shohei Ohtani has 12 career multi-HR games… 6 have come this season.

Ohtani Matches Glaus In Halos History
This is some good company to be in if you’re Ohtani.
We often hear about how he might be the second coming of Babe Ruth, but this doesn’t stop him from matching other MLB legends.
Glaus is certainly important to the Angels and their history, having been a key part of their run to a World Series title in 2002.
Ohtani continues to simply dominate in the early stages of his MLB career.
Last night’s two-homer game put his home run total for the season at 32 after he hit 46 a year ago on his way to being crowned the MVP.
He also brought his RBI total up to 85 and improved his batting average to .270.
Ohtani is certainly one of a kind and is the type of player we may never see again in baseball.
His dominance won’t save the Angels this year, but he’ll still continue to put on a show as long as he’s playing and make a solid case for another MVP award.
