Ohtani Hits Milestone 32nd Home Run, Lifts Angels Over Red Sox Wednesday
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani hit his major league-leading 32nd homer and broke the single-season major league record for homers by a Japanese player during the Los Angeles Angels’ 5-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox. Fellow All-Star Jared Walsh homered twice for the Angels, who won for the sixth time in seven games and took two of three from the AL-leading Red Sox. Ohtani broke Hideki Matsui’s record with his 433-foot shot to right off Eduardo Rodríguez. Xander Bogaerts had three hits and drove in a run for the Red Sox, who lost for just the third time in 13 games.
