The 2021 American League MVP Award race may be between two. Shohei Ohtani and Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
On Monday night, Vladimir Guerrero Jr took another step closer to getting the award for himself.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, Vladimir takes Tampa Bay Rays reliever Adam Conley deep on a line drive for his 45th home run, which leads the American League.
Ohtani was tied with Guerrero before that home run with 44 home runs. Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez is behind them with 42 bombs.
With the final weeks of the 2021 regular season, the chase to win the home run title between Guerrero and Ohtani will be a fun one to watch for the fans.
