Shohei Ohtani breaks Dodgers record with his eighth home run.  

Shohei Ohtani broke the Los Angeles Dodgers record for most home runs by a Japanese-born player with his eighth of the season.  

Ohtani was tied with manager Dave Roberts, who hit seven home runs during his Dodgers tenure.  

Ohtani equaled Roberts on April 26 with his seventh home run of the season.  

Ohtani then took sole control of the Dodgers' record by hitting his ninth home run against the Atlanta Braves on May 4, 2024, while facing Bryce Elder.  

In the third inning, Ohtani hit his eighth home run of the season, propelling him to the top of the Dodgers' record books.  

Ohtani has performed as well, if not better, than expected for the Dodgers, ranking high in numerous offensive metrics throughout MLB.  

He has been slugging at an incredible rate despite not hitting his first home run until April 3 against the San Francisco Giants.  

Despite the slightly delayed power surge, Ohtani broke the MLB record for the most home runs hit by a Japanese-born player.
