Shohei Ohtani hit the longest homer of his major league career in the first inning, and the surging Los Angeles Angels pounded a season-high five homers in an 8-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.
Ohtani then added a third-inning double. Max Stassi, José Iglesias and Justin Upton also homered for Los Angeles off Bubic. Taylor Ward added a two-run shot in the eighth as the Angels hit five homers in a game for the first time since 2019.
First place White Sox lead second place Cleveland by four games, third place KC is 7 and a half out.
