Ohtani faced league-class pitcher John Gray, and rolled up Gray’s slider, which fell from the full count to the low course, to hit the fence in right-center. It was Ohtani’s 17th homer of the season.

Ohtani also hit a home run in Game 1 of the three consecutive Texas games held the previous day (12th). The Dodgers faced pitcher Grant Anderson in the bottom of the sixth inning with a 7-1 lead, and hit a four-seam fastball (148.4 km/h) in the middle of the game with a ball count of 2-2 strikes to hit the central right-center fence.

Home run production, which had been slow for some time, has accelerated. Ohtani hit his 13th homerun of this season in a game against the Cincinnati Reds on April 18, and remained silent for 10 games. However, after hitting his 14th homerun in a game against the New York Mets on June 30, he re-entered the race to become the home run king by hitting three homers in June.

Meanwhile, the gap with No. 1 in the MLB widened. Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees marked 25 as of Tuesday. However, when narrowed down to the National League, he trailed Marcell Ozuna of the Atlanta Braves, who is currently No. 1 with 18.
