The wrong beat of pitching and batting occurred. Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels) hit two homers and was sluggish as a starting pitcher, but made up for it as a batter.
The Los Angeles Angels had a home game against the Oakland Athletics on the 28th (Korean time) at the Angel Stadium located in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Ohtani came out as the starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels that day. Up until the third inning, it was a perfect pitching job. 3 scoreless innings as a pitcher, 5 strikeouts, 2 hits, 2 hits and 1 RBI as a batter.
But episode 4 was a problem. Ohtani allowed second base to be stolen after giving lead hitter Esteuri Lewis a hit ball in the fourth inning. Following this, he gave up third base on a wild pitch.
He immediately allowed a walk to Conor Capell, and was hit by a 3-pointer by Brent Lucker. This was Ohtani’s first home run of the season.
This was not the end. Ohtani immediately gave the hit ball to Jace Peterson and allowed second base with a wild pitch.
Ohtani, who was shaken sharply, was hit by Shay Langeliers again with two runs from second base. He gave up 5 runs only in the 4th inning with 2 home runs.
Afterwards, Ohtani was forced into a crisis with two outs on first and third bases with a double and a walk, but narrowly escaped an extra run by striking out Lewis.
It is the first time that Ohtani has allowed multiple home runs as a pitcher since the game against the Atlanta Braves on July 23 last year. It’s been 18 games.스포츠토토
After conceding a large number of runs, Ohtani blocked the 5th and 6th innings without conceding. In response, Ohtani threw 93 balls (63 strikes) in 6 innings that day, recording 3 hits and 5 runs.
As a result, Ohtani’s season ERA, which was second in the major leagues with 0.64, soared to 1.85. An unexpected sluggish performance came out of the last team.
However, Ohtani hit his first multi-long hit of the season as a hitter. After an infield hit to second base in the first inning, Ohtani hit JP Sears with an RBI double in the third inning with one company on first and third base.
Ohtani then hit Domingo Acevedo with a triple in the right field in the sixth inning when he came off the mound, with no runners out, and scored on the follow-up hit.
He made up for his sluggish performance as a starting pitcher at bat. It is the first time this season that Ohtani has hit two long shots in one game. He also hit his first triple this season.
As a pitcher, he gave up 5 runs in 6 innings, striking out 8, and as a batter, he went 5 times with 3 hits, 1 RBI and 2 runs. Ohtani’s pitching was off, but his teammate and himself hit for his fourth win of the season.
The Los Angeles Angels took a 5-0 lead with 5 points in the 3rd inning, but Ohtani fell into a big slump in the 4th inning and allowed the score to be tied 5-5.
However, the Los Angeles Angels managed to score 2 runs and 1 run in the 5th and 6th innings, respectively, and despite giving up 2 runs in the 8th inning, they kept the lead to the end and won 8-7.
After hitting a triple in the 6th inning on the day, Ohtani scored the final 8th run, which became the game-winner. In other words, batter Ohtani presented pitcher Ohtani with his 4th victory.
