Shohei Ohtani keeps finding ways to make history. The two-way Angels star set a career high with 13 strikeouts in his start against the Royals on Wednesday. The outing came one day after he set a new career high with eight RBIs at the plate Tuesday, including two home runs, in Los Angeles' 12-11 extra-innings loss to Kansas City.

Ohtani is the first player ever with eight RBIs as a hitter and 10 strikeouts as a pitcher in consecutive games, according to ESPN.

Ohtani — who was also the designated hitter Wednesday — had 96 pitches and 12 strikeouts through the seventh inning but came back out for the eighth with his team up 3-0. He retired the Royals in order, adding one more strikeout, bringing his pitch count to 108.
