Shohei Ohtani has been one of the most unstoppable players in the MLB so far. The Los Angeles Angels’ two-way player is a monster on both sides of the ball. He could strike you out in one inning, then proceed to slam a home run against your pitcher in the next. His level of two-way play is unprecedented in MLB history.

Well, against the Texas Rangers, one of the streaks of Ohtani the pitcher has been broken. As the starting pitcher for the Angels that day, Shohei Ohtani gave up a grand slam to Jonah Heim after the former threw his trusty splitter at him. Prior to that home-run, no player has ever hit Shohei’s splitter when he throws it at an 0-2 count.

That Heim HR was also Ohtani’s first time giving up a Grand Slam in the big leagues. Talk about an awful day for awful firsts for the Angels star.

To be fair to Ohtani, that splitter has been one of his best weapons in the league so far. There’s a reason why the Angels star has relied on that pitch in those critical situation. Ohtani’s splitter breaks in such a nasty way that most hitters are caught off-guard by it. However, it’s likely that Heim saw the scouting report and sat on that splitter when he fell behind 0-2.

Will this ever discourage Ohtani from throwing the splitter? Well, he shouldn’t be. The Angels star has still been incredible so far, turning in an immaculate Opening Day game from the team. One grand slam given up shouldn’t be the end of the world for him, especially with how devastating that splitter’s history is.
