Ohtani, 28, starred in the Angels’ win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.

The Japanese superstar was 3/3 with the bat, including two more home runs, taking his season record to 28.

Ohtani sits three points ahead of Matt Olson in second place at 25 in Major League Baseball in 2023.

But he also played in Tuesday’s 4-2 win over the White Sox.

He had 10 strikeouts in 6 and a third inning, joining rarer company.

Ohtani is only the fifth player since 1900 to hit two homers and ten strikeouts in a single game.

His latest statistic was labeled “absurd” by a sportsbook on Twitter.

And fans rushed to compare him to the iconic Ruth.

Babe was a seven-time World Series champion with both the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees during her 21-year career.

Considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1936.

One fan said: “And some still say that babe was better.”

Another commented: “He’s Babe Ruth. Unreal.”

A third wrote: “Greatest baseball player of all time.”

Ohtani is set to become a free agent this season when his one-year, $30 million deal expires.

Some have predicted he could earn $600 million from the biggest contract in MLB history.
