Shohei Ohtani made history on Thursday night in the Los Angeles Angels’ game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Angels DH came out on fire against the Rays, slugging an opposite field 3-run home run in the first. He followed it up with a double in the third, triple in the fourth, and he added a single in the seventh to hit for the cycle as he began the game 4-for-4.
Ohtani became the first Japanese-born player in MLB history to hit for the cycle. The cycle was the second of the season in MLB and first for the Angels since 2013. He had the eighth cycle in Angels history and third at Tropicana Field.
