Remember Shohei Ohtani’s Bunt Single for Dodgers? It Never Happened Now

Los Angeles Dodgers designated hitter Shohei Ohtani has unloaded on quite a few baseballs this season. There have been blistering line drives nearing 120 mph off his bat to towering home runs that almost land in San Francisco’s McCovey Cove but every pitch is a moment that fans want to soak up.

On Monday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Ohtani tapped into his baseball IQ. In the first inning, he dropped down a bunt and beat out what he thought was a base hit until Major League Baseball changed its mind. Upon further review, a good throw from Arizona pitcher Joe Mantiply would have gotten Ohtani out at first.

It would have been his first bunt single with the Dodgers and his first since the 2022 season with the Los Angeles Angels but now, it’s like it never happened.

  1. Why help to perpetuate the ludicrous notion of “Los Angeles” Angels. Everyone knows it’s a failed marketing trick and thinks it’s dumb. You have every right to just call them the Angels.

  2. This nothing to do with bunt!
    But the time has come to bid Dave a Mattingly goodbye! We need to some fire in the dugout that we haven’t had since Lasorda!!!
    Enough is enough!!!!
