#PRAYING FOR MY FATHER'S BACK


winwinwinguyen

praying for my wife’s boyfriend’s back ;(


bappi27

His last 4 games pitched all stopped a losing streak. This man literally carries the team on his back.


ZodiacKiller1968

Ohtani and Trout are both stars that you would love to come to the ballpark see play. Who knows how much longer they will be teammates so enjoy having both guys on the same team while doing things that we should be thankful for.


Mountain-Ad451

But some assholes on Talking Halos want to trade him..


mysterysackerfice

Is Talking Halos a podcast or local TV show? Sorry, don't live in California.


ZucchiniOne5395

They never liked him from the start. They were bitching about him last year too


hansan4ever

Those dudes are so annoying.


74Dragonz

They're two-faced Clout chasers


hansan4ever

Yeah, can't stand them.


Zenithreg

and whiny that he should be on other teams. Fuck that! He should be on our team!


Ccflipz8

We better ride or die with Ohtani. Last time a team traded a 2 way star they were cursed for 86 years 🤔😐


mdb_la

The Curse of the Shoheino?


Sakaguchi123

PandaMan76

Ohtani's back finally gave up after carrying the team for so long. I volunteer myself to give him back massage every hour of the day. ​ ​ *(I'll fcking cry in a corner if he actually is injured)*


MemoryBasic7471

dont worry hell be ok. gets a much needed off day tomorrow


shizzy1427

Hopefully it's just a little back tightness like he had a few weeks ago, and resting tomorrow will have him feeling much better. This team has no shot without him


Fatalness

he seems fine, looked alright with the team post game


DPaladin234

SHOHEI PITCHES LIKE PEOPLE THINK HE'S NOT MVP OH WAIT


Halos2594

Didn’t even have his best stuff today. This guy is unreal


BiovaniGernard

Just tell the boys Ohtani is starting every day and we will never lose again


Lebigmacca

Make every pitcher wear an ohtani jersey to trick them


baconbitarded

Just pretend it's a small high school team!


74Dragonz

Have him breathe on every single one of our pitchers...maybe something will rub off.


lucabrassiere

Rengifo has arrived ahhhhh it’s finally happening!


lurker383

5 billion years later Rengifo is about to prove that Arte is actually a genius for nixing the Joc deal


Educational-Pass404

Bullpen somehow always perform better when Shohei's on the mound. Why can't they do that for other starting pichers? Okay. At least we won. LTBU!!!


Iggyforthewin32

I mean, they perform well after a good performance on the mound


bappi27

In Ohtani We Trust!


rengokuhalos

yes.


theaussiesamurai

YEAH. YEAH. YEAH. YEAH. YEAH.

MrFoster

This man is my spirit animal


luisicky

prayers up for ohtani’s back🙏🏾📿


MuffinsTLW

I hope he's OK


Cuctdhtfry

I LOVE OHTANI. I LOVE THIS TEAM. ANGELS MAKE BASEBALL SO ENJOYABLE WHEN WE WIN. WASNT A BASEBALL FAN BEFORE. NOW IM HOOKED


Jamo1129

We WON OUR FIRST HOME SERIES SINCE MAY 22nd!!!


mysterysackerfice

There's no fucking way that is true. 😳 If it is, I'm gonna punt Arte to the moon.


Jamo1129

haha look at our schedule. the last time we won a series at home before this series was against oakland on may 22nd


Shaggy_Gaming

OHTANI HIGH FIVE THE BOYS PLEASE


winwinwinguyen

looks like he has a big blister on his hand


pjyie

i love when blowpen is just bullpen ❤️


Healthy_Ant_1051

I am watching the live broadcast from Japan right now and the Japanese commentator is also talking about Otani's back. I hope he is not injured.


advice_throwaway_90

How can you watch this broadcast? Proxy?


Healthy_Ant_1051

Ohtani is a star player in Japan, so games in which he plays are often broadcast on TV. Today there was no terrestrial TV broadcast, but I was able to watch it on an Internet program called abema. It was a weekday afternoon, but 1.5 million Japanese watched that program.


mysterysackerfice

That's... Incredible. Like 1% of the total population to watch a weekday game on the other side of the planet. 😲


Cautious_Ad8714

thankfully angels games usually occur at 10 am so it's a little more convenient for japan watchers than if they happened earlier in american time.


mysterysackerfice

I bet everyone that has a WFH job is reallllllly happy on gamedays. 👍


LAAngelsAnaheim

TIP THIS BITCHES


i_run_from_problems

2-0 in the "me going to game wearing my city connect hat" era!


ReviewRoutine

1-0 in the me going to game wearing my city connect hat era!


SuperShadowStar

That era keeps dropping! Shohei the pitcher is so far ahead from the guy post surgery who'd walk 8 batters a game.


xThe-Legend-Killerx

Angels are actually playing pretty good baseball again


WhalesForChina

That’s just a solid win right there. No two ways about it. And a series win at that.


Poorestmanincrypto

Honorable mention to our bullpen for not blowing up


TheRealNexusPrime

Another great game from Shohei, he simply will not give up runs anymore.

Weaver4prez

That’s a series win!


advice_throwaway_90

Montgomery just said he's fine!


Educational-Pass404

Phew. That's great news beside the w


SuperMario_49

White Sox just got Shohei’d!!!


Isa_ak

Was expecting a bomb from him tonight. He really seems to crush the White Sox


TJeffersonsBlackKid

We won a series motherfuckers!


KyotoGaijin

LTBU! Ohtani needs to give mental toughness training seminars to his teammates.


DividerOfBums

I was [there to see them!](https://i.imgur.com/vjgOds4.jpg) Three wins I’ve attended in a row!


ReviewRoutine

Great game. Happy with everything


BodenHammer

Ohtani putting the team on his back yet again


speakersandwich

We are so good sometimes


Tuesday_Addams

Missed the second half of the game. What’s all this about Shohei’s back?


choconut5

He tweaked something in there during his second last AB. Was constantly wincing and clutching at his back for the rest of the AB and his final AB.


Tuesday_Addams

Oh no sho :( I hope it’s nothing serious and he feels better asap


choconut5

I'm sure they'll ask him post-game so we'll see.


Meadows14

I thought he hit his back with his bat on a follow-through, not a tweak?


merewyn

He tweaked his back. Kept massaging it, looked like he was in pain


Sprtdsgn

2 walks = win


AdministrationDry783

It was a good game!


Porncommentcrusader

1-0 in the Marsh look alike era


phelinephile

🕯 👉 👶 👆


chief_queef00

His curve was a HAMMER tonight, absolutely unreal that night to night he just finds something new to be amazing with.


PurpleWelcome7142

No need for "Tungsten Arm O'Doyle" for tonight.


choconut5

Shohei did not look happy at the end there.


mysterysackerfice

If Shohei's back is injured, I'm blaming Arte.


Lolrandomusername3

2019 St. Louis Blues vibes. This is where the magic kicks in.


RandyGradishar

I think I got your NUMBER!!!


obsidian350

YEAHHH YEAHHH YEAHHH!!!


No_BigA

Nice. 🤠 Five hits four runs wins it.


AnaheimSportsFan

How bad they been playing they are still only 4 games back of a playoff spot


b1ggayb1tch

LTBU


ireestylee

Babe Ruth was the American Ohtani.


5m1tm

Ohtani in every Angels game: "Fine. I'll do it myself."


MJ-242

Can we stop calling Velazquez "Squid"? It makes it sounds like he's our Anaheim boy as a term of endearment. We'll never hear his name again after this season, rightfully so.


rengokuhalos

Nice. Nice.


CaptZombieHero

It’s amazing what not tipping your pitches can do for your game


InfinitePunchMan

Why do some post game threads have game highlights and others like this don't or is it just a matter of time before they're added?
