Stark:

 

Shohei Ohtani's week: * Faced 34 hitters in a row (over 2 starts) without allowing a hit! (one BB in there) * Threw 4 pitches clocked at 100 mph * Hit a HR off Cy Young (Corey Kluber) * Hit a HR 3 games in a row (in which he batted) Seriously!

These are the 10 best hitting seasons by pitchers - Ohtani attempting to do what few others have done

And I'll give you #1, was of course...

 

1. Babe Ruth, 1918, Red Sox
Pitching: 13-7, 2.22 ERA, 166 1/3 innings
Hitting: .300/.411/.555, led league in homers (11) and slugging

From the linked article...  :-)

 

Zach Britton. He only had one season where he batted -- he did so eight times in 2011 when he was still a struggling starting pitcher. But Britton went 5-for-8 with a homer and a double. His .625 batting average is the best for any batter with eight or fewer plate appearances since 1903. His 1.125 slugging percentage is second best only to Carlos Rivero. So we add our voices to the chorus: Free Britton's bat!

Ohtani left the game early with a blister.

 

As Greenberg just said on ESPN, could be something.... a reminder of the different balls used in Japan and MLB.
