SEATTLE (AP) – Shohei Ohtani reached the upper deck of the T-Mobile Park as the sixth player with a majestic bang for his 33 angel 7-3. Ohtani had the most memorable recording of the evening. Haniger hit the most important thing. Haniger drove a pitch from Jose Quintana into the bullpen on left field to limit Seattle’s rally from a 3-0 deficit. The Angels took a 3-0 lead thanks to Ohtani’s kick starter Marco Gonzales, who shot into the upper deck of right field. Statcast from MLB projected the homer at 463 feet.
