"Shhh" - Olivia Dunne silences fan's taunt about Shohei Ohtani homering off boyfriend Paul Skenes' 100 mph fastball

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates
Olivia Dunne claps back at fan who took a jibe at Paul Skenes

Olivia Dunne came back from her family trip to Los Cabos, Mexico, and straight away headed to Pittsburgh in anticipation of her boyfriend Paul Skenes' start against the LA Dodgers in PNC Park on June 5, 2024. Skenes registered his third win of the season on Wednesday night as he finished with an impressive statline against the mighty Dodgers.

He gave up three earned runs on six hits and struck out eight batters in five innings pitched to help the Pirates win the tie 10-6. But during that outing, Paul Skenes gave up two home runs, one of which was a two-run bomb by LA's two-way ace, Shohei Ohtani, in the top of the third inning off a 100-mph searing fastball.

Olivia Dunne shared a TikTok video of the game showcasing Skenes striking out Ohtani in his first at-bat in the first inning, as a fan took a jibe at the 22-year-old pitcher and commented on her video:

"Ohtani went yard next at bat"

Livvy Dunne immediately silenced the fan by replying:


Take a look at the TikTok video here, which was captioned:

"You're doing amazing sweetie"

And the text in the video reads:

"POV: You're in your WAG era"

Olivia Dunne actively supports Paul Skenes both on and off the diamond. He is 3-0 for the season in his five starts so far for the Pirates.

Skenes has an ERA of 3.00 with 38 strikeouts and 1.00 WHIP. Paul is set to take to the mound for his next start in the series opener against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday.

Livvy has been present in the stands for almost all of Paul Skenes starts so far in the 2024 MLB season. It will be interesting to see whether the NCAA title-winning gymnast will travel to Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri, to watch Skenes' next start on June 11, 2024, against Miles Mikolas and the Cardinals.
