Two-way star Shohei Ohtani recorded the 100th home run of his combined pro career in Japan and the United States on Wednesday, a day after throwing four scoreless innings in his second pitching start of the Los Angeles Angels' season.

Ohtani batted second as the designated hitter and hit a solo shot off Texas starter Mike Foltynewicz in the third inning to put the home team ahead 2-0 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The Rangers would eventually rally for a 7-4 win.
