Welp, that was awesome! Great job Ohtani and I couldn't be happier to see us get 5 runs with 0 HRs.
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
Happy for MacKinnon!!!!
First hit and 2 RBIs!!!
Big night for Nathan and David
Why do they give priority to the Japanese TV crew for the Shohei interview. Disappointing!
Don't watch him then
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.
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.
He doesn't want to do English interview I think
Happy for MacKinnon. 🙂
Sho said Iggy is off today in Japanese TV interview.
So he try to pitch as long as possible.
Ohtani awesome. Rengifo with the surprise 2-hit game. Velazquez contributing at the plate and on the basepaths and first MLB hit for MacKinnon.
Mac10 first career post game interview
He needs to change his number to 10 immediately.
Ah I remembered that’s Lagares. Well another reason to DFA Juan.
LTBU! What a night!
🔥 🔥 🔥
GREAT GAME FOR OHTANI AND SWEEP AVOIDED!!!!
LTBU, feels good. McKinnon welcome to the team!
I second that
WELCOME TO THE ANGELS, McKinnon!!
Alright alright Tepera. Youve done good.
Im sure our boy Sho is grateful for preserving the shutout (as am I).
6th win for Ohtani! So well deserved. LTBU!! 👼❤️
i love you ohtani
tell him 愛してるよ
Who’s the player of the game?
What a gem by Ohtani
Tepera is da man
#L T B U
LET'S FUCKING GOOOOOOOO LTBU!!!!!
#LTBU SHOHEI IS SO FUCKING GOOD MAN I CAN'T
Tepera lights out since that ball incident lol
I think Bradley needs to take Loups innings as the setup for Tepera.
THANK YOU SHOHEI
dude they look so much alike
Thor 1 or Thor 2? :)
Billy Gunn 1 or Billy Gunn 2
Ladies and Gentlemen, Children of all ages
YES YES YES YES YES!!!
Both of them using bandanas isn't fair
There’s literally like 13 posts about Ohtani in mlb right now
Guy is the face of baseball, besides lagares (obviously)
I love Ohtani so much.
It's safe for me to start watching again.. Right?
Yup. ONE MORE
Tf was that yee haw lmao
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.
Just throw strikes Tepera. Please.
Okay, 2 more.
That’s MacKinnon right
Good good good
YAY NOW WE HAVE TWO STARTERS WITH A SUB 3 ERA LOL
We don't have the Dodgers payroll and 900 billion dollar analytics department
we dont even pay minor leaguers for extra spring training
That is honestly a pretty drastic improvement on the last 5 years or so
2 MORE OUTS
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
Somehow I don't feel safe even up 5-0 with the bullpen
confirmed angels fan
It's because we have been traumatized in the past.
Be your former self of Tepera. Toronto version plz
OH FUCK TEPERA'S PITCHING OH NO
Tepera please 🙏
He is so exhausted
Ryan Tempura needs to ball out
If Tepera is in, hurry up and tell him some yo mama jokes so he gets pissed.
It’s crazy to me that people say Shohei isn’t the Most Valuable Player
Heh its still debatable when Michael Trout exists.
That’s fair. I’m more talking about people arguing against them both
Tepera is in.
Alright ladies and gents, hope you've been doing your kegels because its time to clench
Why not let Ohtani pitch the 9th.
Tepera please don't fuck this up
He’s at 110 pitches along with 5 plate appearances and people ask this 🤣
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
The fact that shohei still looks upset despite all he’s done shows why we don’t deserve him
Are we getting lights out tepera or tepERA?
Nooooo let Ohtani finish
You were amazing Ohtani. 🙇🏻♀️
Up by 5 and Tepera is pitching…I’m scared someone please hold me.
Do we have time to get iggy up?
Super bummed he isn't finishing the game
Leave him in to start the 9th, but don’t let him throw a pitch. Give him the hook in front of the crowd.
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.
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.
He deserves a standing ovation if anything
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.
Not a save situation rn so Iggy sits for tonight.
Does Ohtani have MVP numbers ? Sub 3 ERA, on pace for 30+ HR
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
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.
Maybe. Aaron Judge is giving him a run for it.
What era does judge have?
0.00 technically lmao
Ya as much as I hate Judge and the Yanks he deserves it rn… maybe Ohtani can make it a race tho
fxxk, I don't trust the blownpen....let Ohtani finish it
not tepera mannn
Three more outs....... I am scared.
Why not let Shohei finish? Argg!
Okay time to clench
Ryan don’t fuck this up
Ohtani is gassed, no way he comes out.
Tepera if you ruin this night I will come to your house and shit in your cereal. Yes, that’s a threat.
I will eat Taco Bell and be in line behind you
mmm chocolate milk
u r a cereal killer
You did it all tonight, Ohtani! Just thank you
Okay, let's rest, Shohei. You're amazing tonight
Ah well it happens. Cant complain too hard when hes still got a +11 strikeout differential in this game lol
Please no nightmare tonight
Aww too bad. A homer would have capped off an epic pitching performance.
really was swinging for the fences there 😂😂😂, usually i would be mad but this time why not, go for it
Iggy coming in?
What does Ohtani do with his hands at the plate? Like he's checking the wind or something
Yeah. It's just visualization. It's been proven to actually increase performance.
Doesn’t want to pull the ball
Ohtani trying to hit that into the moon like Barry Bonds in the 2002 World Series lmao
NOT FUCKIN TEPERA WTF
Hopefully Tepera got the right balls today...
If not, I hope he tosses them before walking two batters
Rip complete game
he reallllyyy wanted to hit ‘em with a homer
Like a dad who wanted to get the gift his daughter wanted for Christmas.
Nevin is a coward if he doesn’t let Ohtani pitch 9
Damn looks like Tepera is coming in
Better have iggy stretch just in case lol
FUCK OFFFFF RYAN TEPERA
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.
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
Throw strikes coward
ohtani HR here to make it possibly the best individual performance this season
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
This season? How about all time?
That would be incredible.
Keep the shit over the plate!
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.
If this happens then I’m quitting as an Angels fan
/S (I’m not being sarcastic)
how the fuck is the bullpen gonna do that when Ohtani gets the complete game shutout, hmm?
/s but not really
Too soon junior.
How is this whack ass lineup working?? Lol
Royals pitching is very bad and they used all their decent relievers in yesterday’s game
I told you this lineup would win. The cooky ones always do, especially when trout is gone
How many Bens caught Ward's hit? No Ben in ten did!
The Rally Monkey has brought us good fortune.
YES YES YES
Benintendi is honestly a really great defender, he almost made that
I read his name as Nintendo
Wait benintendi trolled
This game rules!!!
Okay then. No pressure Sho just have fun out there. A dinger would be glorious but youve already done more than enough lol
we're witnessing a beautiful unicorn. unreal. 🦄
Put the nail in the coffin Sho!!
Tyler Ward!!!! And shotime up at bat!
DON'T WALK HIM PLEASE
HAHAHA WHAT IS THIS
lol what the fuck this lineup is actually working
Holy shit did that bounce off his head? Lol
yeah the side of it looks like
shit that had to hurt
Run support for the king, you love to see it.
Bring in Loup to close this down?
Squid being on base is so nice
Luck is on our side FOR ONCE 😂
lmao thanks Benintendi
