Shohei Ohtani on Tuesday night vs. the Diamondbacks stepped to the plate with Gavin Lux on first aand the Dodgers behind 3-2. 

He got a hanging slider up and in on a 1-0 pitch from Arizona reliever Justin Martinez and tattooed a no-doubt home run to right center field. Exit velocity was clocked at 112 MPH with an estimated distance of 433 feet. 

The two-run blast was Ohtani’s 27th of the season — the most in the National League — and it gave the Dodgers a 4-3 lead in the seventh.
