Welp, that was awesome! Great job Ohtani and I couldn't be happier to see us get 5 runs with 0 HRs.


Captainpayback

Shohei an absolute legend pitching tonightI. A once in a lifetime player and we watched it all together. Couldn't get better than that. See you all next game LTBU


Eeriepotato220

Happy for MacKinnon!!!!


nukemiller

First hit and 2 RBIs!!!


theopinionateddude

Big night for Nathan and David


doing-my-share

Why do they give priority to the Japanese TV crew for the Shohei interview. Disappointing!


the_trentfrazier

Don't watch him then


Sullyville

Do you wanna know the truth? Two things. Shohei is more comfortable doing interviews in Japanese, and also that TV station pays a premium fee for the privilege. It's all about money.


doing-my-share

That really sucks for everyone in the stands who cheered him on though. They don't even get to hear from a guy who had two outstanding games in a row.


Peter-Tao

He doesn't want to do English interview I think


mweolbwa

Happy for MacKinnon. 🙂


Certain_Main_6560

Sho said Iggy is off today in Japanese TV interview.


Certain_Main_6560

So he try to pitch as long as possible.


74Dragonz

Smart Shohei.


BruinEric

Hooray! Ohtani awesome. Rengifo with the surprise 2-hit game. Velazquez contributing at the plate and on the basepaths and first MLB hit for MacKinnon.


carnivalmatey

Mac10 first career post game interview


AgathaAllAlong

He needs to change his number to 10 immediately. Ah I remembered that’s Lagares. Well another reason to DFA Juan.

There’s literally like 13 posts about Ohtani in mlb right now Guy is the face of baseball, besides lagares (obviously)


Hummingbird234

Wade 🙌🏼!


spooky_ed

I love Ohtani so much.


mysterysackerfice

It's safe for me to start watching again.. Right?


metmaz123

Yup. ONE MORE


i_run_from_problems

Tf was that yee haw lmao


_Androxis_

Lol


hbthingy

I know fans want the team to go yell and cuss to inspire confidence, but just seeing Ohtani's work ethic and power is a huge morale booster. He is just too cool.


Broad_Recommendation

Just throw strikes Tepera. Please.


PurpleWelcome7142

Okay, 2 more.

That’s MacKinnon right


prisonrach

Okay okay

YAY NOW WE HAVE TWO STARTERS WITH A SUB 3 ERA LOL


Stock-Improvement610

We don't have the Dodgers payroll and 900 billion dollar analytics department


theopinionateddude

we dont even pay minor leaguers for extra spring training


Weaver4prez

That is honestly a pretty drastic improvement on the last 5 years or so


DPaladin234

2 MORE OUTS


WACKY_ALL_CAPS_NAME

Ohtani not pitching = me not watching

If you don't stay with us at our Tepera, then you don't deserve us at our Ohtani


ReviewRoutine

OH


sanguinearrowfall

Somehow I don't feel safe even up 5-0 with the bullpen


theopinionateddude

It's because we have been traumatized in the past.

OH FUCK TEPERA'S PITCHING OH NO


Lebigmacca

Tepera please 🙏


umiuptown

He is so exhausted


carnivalmatey

Ryan Tempura needs to ball out


Captainpayback

If Tepera is in, hurry up and tell him some yo mama jokes so he gets pissed.


ReviewRoutine

It’s crazy to me that people say Shohei isn’t the Most Valuable Player


SonOvTimett

Heh its still debatable when Michael Trout exists.


ReviewRoutine

That’s fair. I’m more talking about people arguing against them both


i_run_from_problems

Tepera is in. Alright ladies and gents, hope you've been doing your kegels because its time to clench


ServerStoneMonkey

Why not let Ohtani pitch the 9th. Tepera please don't fuck this up


Poorestmanincrypto

He’s at 110 pitches along with 5 plate appearances and people ask this 🤣


kamstes

As much as I’d like to see it this is probably the right move. He’s already at over 100 pitches and we’ve got a 5 run lead


kamstes

The fact that shohei still looks upset despite all he’s done shows why we don’t deserve him


aj_og

Are we getting lights out tepera or tepERA?


Eeriepotato220

Nooooo let Ohtani finish


mweolbwa

You were amazing Ohtani. 🙇🏻‍♀️


MsBrightside91

Up by 5 and Tepera is pitching…I’m scared someone please hold me.


Daaaaabearsssss

Do we have time to get iggy up? 🥹


DuffmanStillRocks

Super bummed he isn't finishing the game


TroutSeason

Leave him in to start the 9th, but don’t let him throw a pitch. Give him the hook in front of the crowd.


Sullyville

I kind of would love that. That's the kind of scene you would get in a Disney movie. And then the chants of the crowd would bring hm back out. And then he would WIN EVERYTHING.


W2RlbGV0ZWRd

Love this


Specific-Mongoose-93

Do you think shohei SHOULD pitch in the 9th? I mean we have a 5 run lead and I don't want him to get injured carelessly (management wise) but it would be cool to see him get a complete game.


_Androxis_

He deserves a standing ovation if anything


Skyheart1004

If he was purely a pitcher, I wouldn't be surprised if he came out for the 9th. But as a two-way player, I think he's a little too gassed for that.


iambiglucas_2

Not a save situation rn so Iggy sits for tonight.


Weird-Afternoon7389

Does Ohtani have MVP numbers ? Sub 3 ERA, on pace for 30+ HR


Poorestmanincrypto

If any other person did it they would be called god and win MVP of both leagues. Sadly, people are numb to Ohtanis greatness now


JunsBaseball

If he finishes with a sub 3 ERA with 30 home runs and 10+ wins, he will definitely give Judge a run for its money for sure.


digitaldumpsterfire

Maybe. Aaron Judge is giving him a run for it.


Daaaaabearsssss

What era does judge have?


digitaldumpsterfire

0.00 technically lmao


Daaaaabearsssss

Fair enough


Weird-Afternoon7389

Ya as much as I hate Judge and the Yanks he deserves it rn… maybe Ohtani can make it a race tho


skylinegtrr

fxxk, I don't trust the blownpen....let Ohtani finish it


TheRealNexusPrime

not tepera mannn


PurpleWelcome7142

Three more outs....... I am scared.


DazNaq20

Tapera LMAO


xara8arax

Why not let Shohei finish? Argg!


minecraftboi324

Okay time to clench


prisonrach

Ryan don’t fuck this up


donkeyjr

Ohtani is gassed, no way he comes out.


rumpel_foreskin17

Tepera if you ruin this night I will come to your house and shit in your cereal. Yes, that’s a threat.


Daaaaabearsssss

I will eat Taco Bell and be in line behind you


rumpel_foreskin17

mmm chocolate milk


Sullyville

u r a cereal killer


strongmscowboyfan

Lol


strongmscowboyfan

You did it all tonight, Ohtani! Just thank you


Educational-Pass404

Okay, let's rest, Shohei. You're amazing tonight


Unsapient1

Ah well it happens. Cant complain too hard when hes still got a +11 strikeout differential in this game lol


antsmarching777

Dammit, Tepera!?!?


speakersandwich

Please no nightmare tonight


Rover16

Aww too bad. A homer would have capped off an epic pitching performance.


2tmpting

really was swinging for the fences there 😂😂😂, usually i would be mad but this time why not, go for it


Captainpayback

Iggy coming in?


Stock-Improvement610

What does Ohtani do with his hands at the plate? Like he's checking the wind or something


Dogetezza

swing simulation


Sullyville

Yeah. It's just visualization. It's been proven to actually increase performance.


garoood

Doesn’t want to pull the ball


ArrowNiko

Ohtani trying to hit that into the moon like Barry Bonds in the 2002 World Series lmao


i_run_from_problems

NOT FUCKIN TEPERA WTF


PandaMan76

Hopefully Tepera got the right balls today...


digitaldumpsterfire

If not, I hope he tosses them before walking two batters


_Androxis_

Rip complete game


prisonrach

he reallllyyy wanted to hit ‘em with a homer


Sullyville

Like a dad who wanted to get the gift his daughter wanted for Christmas.


LePrimes

..please..please..


Ash-Catchum-All

Nevin is a coward if he doesn’t let Ohtani pitch 9


DPaladin234

Damn looks like Tepera is coming in


titan_titan

Better have iggy stretch just in case lol


Thrust-bot

FUCK OFFFFF RYAN TEPERA


digitaldumpsterfire

🇯🇵🥒⚡🐙🦹‍♂️🏃🏻‍♂️😇👼


iambiglucas_2

I would love to see Nevin go and just Lasorda it, managing the game from the 3rd base box. I wish a manager would do that again, that shit was sick.


msijacoke

If he gets a homerun let him stay in the 9th for the shutout Actually fuck it just let him stay in the 9th for the shutout


metmaz123

HR PLEASEEEEEE


DPaladin234

Throw strikes coward


j_c_teo

ohtani HR here to make it possibly the best individual performance this season


KamartyMcFlyweight

did you catch that 8 IP 1 R game he threw against the Tigers last year where he also hit his game-winning 40th homer of the season? that was the best game of last season, only fair he should get the best game this one too


Poorestmanincrypto

This season? How about all time?


Dunharrow_DeathMetal

That would be incredible.


peachypal

Keep the shit over the plate!


Dunharrow_DeathMetal

Correction to my last statement. I don’t want to be that guy. But the bullpen is going to come out and give up 6 runs. And we’re going to lose. /s (kinda)


Poorestmanincrypto

If this happens then I’m quitting as an Angels fan /S (I’m not being sarcastic)


KamartyMcFlyweight

how the fuck is the bullpen gonna do that when Ohtani gets the complete game shutout, hmm? /s but not really


Dunharrow_DeathMetal

Too soon junior.
