He also struck out the first batter he faced in his first start as a pitcher Sunday.

Ohtani's homer just cleared the fence in right field, which the Angels had lowered from 18 feet to eight feet during the offseason.

This was Ohtani's second major league hit, with his first coming in his first major league at-bat against the Oakland Athletics. In fact, Ramirez's home run was the only hit Richards (1-0) allowed before coming out of the game after 5 2/3 innings and making 102 pitches.

Just about the only thing that went wrong Tuesday for the former Nippon Ham Fighter was that his home run was not a grand slam, which it would have been had teammate Kole Calhoun not scored on a wild pitch from Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin while Ohtani was at the plate.

After a terrible spring training that featured 10 strikeouts at the plate, Los Angeles Angels two-way Japanese star Shohei Ohtani is off to a hot start. But after his performance last night, we may not have to wait as long as we originally thought to see his full abilities as a two-way player on a near nightly basis.

Ohtani is the first player to win as a starting pitcher, then start and homer as a non-pitcher in his next game in the same season since Babe Ruth in 1921, according to Fox Sports West.

The young phenom will continue to receive comparisons to Babe Ruth. He's also the first rookie with at least three hits and a win in his first six games since Dutch Stryker of the Boston Braves in 1924.
