Shohei Ohtani Homers Twice As Los Angeles Dodgers Defeat Braves With 5-1 Win

In Sunday afternoon’s match, Shohei Ohtani’s beautiful performance led the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-1 win against the Atlanta Braves, completing a sweep of the three-game series.

Shohei Ohtani displayed his power with two home runs, going 4 for 4 at the plate. In the first inning, he crushed a hanging curveball from Braves starter Max Fried 412 feet against the center field fence for a two-run homer. He followed up with singles in the third and sixth innings before launching another massive blast, a 464-foot solo shot off reliever A.J. Minter in the eighth inning.

This marked Ohtani’s first multihomer game with the Los Angeles Dodgers and the 17th of his career so far. His impressive four-hit performance also matched a career-high, pushing him to the top of the major league leaderboard with 10 home runs this season.

Teoscar Hernandez contributed to the Dodgers’ offensive onslaught with a two-run homer, while James Paxton delivered a strong pitching performance, holding the Braves goalless until the seventh inning. Paxton, now 4-0 on the season, pitched 6 2/3 innings, giving only one run on five hits, with two walks and three strikeouts.

Paxton’s dominance was evident from the start, retiring 16 of the first 18 batters he faced and delivering his longest start since June 30 with Boston.

With Marcell Ozuna’s solo homer for the Braves, their offensive struggles remain, as they have now lost five of their last six games. Fried, the Braves’ starter, pitched seven innings, giving up four hits and four runs, while walking three and striking out seven.

The Braves’ offensive woes were further obvious by their inability to move a runner past first base until Ozuna’s seventh-inning homer.

In the bullpen, Blake Treinen pitched a scoreless eighth inning in his first display since the 2022 postseason, while Michael Grove closed out the game with a perfect ninth inning to secure the sweep for the Dodgers.
