A huge explosion with 4 home runs and 11 RBIs, Ohtani’s 2nd of the season + 9th overall ‘Weekly MVP’

‘Baseball genius’ Shohei Ohtani (LA Dodgers) showed off his spirit by being selected as ‘Player of the Week’ for the second time this year and the 9th time in his career.
‘MLB.com’ announced the American League and National League’s ‘Player of the Week’ on June 25, 2024.

Shohei Otani of the LA Dodgers was selected in the National League, and Josh Naylor of the Cleveland Guardians was selected in the American League.
Ohtani’s bat has been heating up over the past week.

After ‘MVP leadoff’ Mookie Betts suffered a fracture in his left hand and was unintentionally changed to number 1, his batting skills exploded.
Although he is a player who plays his role perfectly in any position, Ohtani’s appearance as the number one hitter is even more frightening.

Shohei Ohtani’s second multi-home run in a game against the Kansas City Royals

Ohtani’s bat, who had shown a slight decline in batting skills after the start of the June schedule, began to explode in a big way on June 17, 2024, when he faced the Kansas City Royals.
At that time, Ohtani showed off his second multi-home run game this season, showing that his batting skills were on the rise again.

However, after changing the batting order to leadoff the next day, the good trend reached its peak.
Ohtani began to show off his presence with 3 hits in 5 at-bats, 1 RBI, 2 runs, 1 walk, and 1 stolen base in the first game against the Colorado Rockies on the 18th of 2024.

And the next day, he hit his 19th arch of the season, showing off 2 hits in 5 at-bats (1 home run), 2 RBIs, and 2 runs scored.
Then, in the third match against Colorado, he had 2 hits, 3 RBIs, and 1 run, and in the last game of the 4-game series, he hit his 20th home run of the season.

Coors Field, where the team faced Colorado, is located at a high altitude and is well-known as the most hitter-friendly place in the major leagues.
Otani, who clearly saw the effect, did not cool down with the bat even after ‘lowering down’.

Shohei Ohtani hits his 21st home run of the season against the LA Angels

On June 22, 2024, Ohtani went on a rampage, recording home runs in three consecutive games, including his 21st home run of the season, 2 hits, 1 RBI, 1 run, and 2 walks in a match against his former teammate, the LA Angels, and on the 23rd, he fired his 22nd missile. .

In this process, Ohtani created history in terms of distance and long hits.
And, last week, as a result of swinging the bat with 11 hits and 11 RBI in 24 at-bats, including 4 home runs, and a batting average of 0.458 and 1.605 OPS, he experienced the joy of being selected as ‘Player of the Week’ for the second time this season.

As a result, Ohtani left his name in history as the first player to be selected as ‘Player of the Week’ multiple times in both major leagues, along with the joy of becoming the Japanese major leaguer the most times (9 times) in history.

According to Japan’s ‘Full Count’, manager Dave Roberts said of Ohtani’s selection as ‘Player of the Week’ for the 9th time in his career, “Ohtani is at a new level,” adding, “He has entered a new realm with increased patience at the plate.
He believes talent plays a big role, and he’s become more dangerous as he’s become more patient with the strike zone at the plate,” he said, sticking his tongue out and giving a thumbs up.

While Ohtani was selected as Player of the Week in the National League, Josh Naylor received the honor in the American League.
Naylor hit multiple home runs in a match against the Seattle Mariners on June 20, 2024, and left a record of 10 hits in 25 at-bats, 3 home runs, a batting average of .400, and an OPS of 1.303 over the past week, and after shaking off his competitors, he enjoyed the joy of Player of the Week. done.
