05 April 2018

When Ohtani returned to dugout, his teammates gave him the silent treatment before breaking character and celebrating with the Japanese phenom. But at the end of the day, we all need to sit back and simply enjoy each time this incredibly talented 23-year-old takes the field. Rivera hit the Angels' fifth homer of the night, a two-run blast in the eighth inning.

Shohei Ohtani hit his first major league home run in his first Angel Stadium at-bat, taking a curtain call after his three-run homer against the Cleveland Indians. The two-way player made a strong debut on the mound in Oakland, pitching six innings, giving up three runs and striking out six. Statcast measured his last hit at 112.8 miles per hour, the hardest-hit ball by an Angels player this season.

"After getting my first hit out of the way, I felt more comfortable and relaxed", Ohtani said through and interpreter. "That was a factor".
