Japanese Phenom who had a disappointing Spring Training but seems to have caught fire once the season started. Angels have him pitching every 10 days I think I read somewhere

So what has he actually achieved? Well, it was more than Babe Ruth did in his first two weeks, that's for sure - but here are some highlights:

1. Ohtani is only the third player in history to get two pitching wins and three home runs in the first 10 games for his team
2. Pitching his second game, he forced 12 strikeouts, equalling an American League record for a pitcher in one of his first two games
3. He is only the third player ever to hit a home run in three consecutive games and pitch a game with more than 10 strikeouts in the same season. One of the others was Babe Ruth

Heh, the BBC says he "forced" 12 strikeouts. :lol: :lol:

Perhaps he tallied some things as well. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I was wondering how he "forced" strikeouts.
I guess perhaps if they were all "looking."
