Shohei Ohtani did not need long to get acclimated at Angel Stadium.
The Japanese two-way star gave up three runs in six innings in a win Sunday over the Athletics on the road, demonstrating that he may have what it takes to be a solid MLB pitcher.
Tuesday, while playing DH against the Indians, the 23-year-old showcased his power when he smacked a ball to right-center for his first career home run in his home debut.
The three-run homer capped off a six-run first inning for Los Angeles that started with a Mike Trout home run after Cleveland pushed across two runs in the top half of the first inning.
Here's the home run called by Japanese broadcasters.
Ohtani finished the night 3 for 4 after recording two singles.
The Angels won 13–2.
