Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) was unable to establish a relationship with victory even after performing a strikeout show.메이저사이트
On the 22nd (Korean time), Ohtani started in the 2023 Major League Freeway Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA, recording 7 innings, 5 hits, 2 walks, 12 strikeouts and 1 run.
Ohtani overwhelmed the Dodgers lineup by throwing a variety of pitches, including a powerful fastball with a maximum speed of 161 km/h, a cut fastball, a splitter, and a modified slider sweeper. But he got a single blow and put his head down.
His only run in the net was a solo home run he allowed off leadoff hitter Freddy Freeman in the top of the fourth. At a speed of 137.4 km/h, the cut fastball, which was used low on the outside, rushed to the center and was hit, giving up one point.
However, with a powerful pitch to catch double-digit strikeouts in the 5th game of this season, he has definitely continued his good condition recently.
At the plate, he left a regret with no hits. The previous day, he was hitless in 4 at-bats due to the power of his “nemesis” Clayton Kershaw, but on this day, he also went 0-hit in 3 at bats.
Ohtani’s season record as a pitcher is 6-3 with a 3.13 ERA. He has 117 strikeouts, which is third in the big leagues and second in the American League behind Spencer Strider (136) and Kevin Gaussman (127).
Ohtani’s fatal weakness is that he avoids many home runs. He has given up 12 homers in 15 starts this year, so his home run numbers are on the high side.
Ohtani’s record as a hitter is a batting average of 0.292, 24 homers, 58 RBIs and 10 stolen bases.
Meanwhile, the Angels fell into a two-game losing streak by kneeling to the Dodgers 0-2. Ohtani showed excellent pitching, but he bowed his head in defeat as the batting line was overwhelmed by the Dodgers mound. The record for the Angels’ Ohtani starting game was 10-5.
The victorious Dodgers put in 7 relievers and sealed the Angels lineup with only 2 hits and took the victory.
