Los Angeles Angels Shohei Ohtani continued his good streak by hitting in three consecutive games. However, after going back and forth between hell and heaven 온라인바카라, such as recording Jurusa, the team’s victory allowed them to smile.
On the 31st (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani started as a designated hitter in the 2023 major league Philadelphia Phillies away match held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, and recorded 1 hit, 1 RBI, 1 run and 1 walk in 4 at-bats. did.
On the 24th against the Cincinnati Reds, he suffered a serious injury that ruptured ligaments in his right elbow, so he could no longer play as a pitcher for the rest of the season, but as a hitter, he is continuing his tremendous momentum. On the 28th, Ohtani was silent against the New York Mets and ended a four-game hitting streak, but the flow is good after the start of three consecutive matches with Philadelphia, such as getting three hits the previous day (30th). And it was his second year in a row with 150 hits.
The flow of the early game was not very good. Ohtani faced Philadelphia starter Christopher Sanchez in the first at-bat without two runners in the top of the first inning, and started the game by striking out on a miss on a changeup that fell out of the strike zone on the fifth pitch and fell to a low course. And in the bottom of the 3rd inning, 2-2, with 1 out and 1 base, Philadelphia 1st baseman Bryce Harper’s good defense put his head down with a double hit.
It wasn’t until the middle of the match that Ohtani began to stretch in earnest. Ohtani held out his bat to the 93.6 mile (approximately 150.6 km) sinker that penetrated the body of Sanchez’s third pitch in the top of the fifth inning when the Angels regained a 3-2 lead, with two outs on first and second base. He pulled out a hit and opened up the gap. With this hit, Ohtani stepped on the high of 150 hits for the second consecutive year.
The joy of 150 hits was a bit disappointing after a while. In the ensuing 1st and 2nd bases, Brandon Drury scored an additional timely hit in the center field. At this time, Ohtani passed second base and ran to third base, and Philadelphia center fielder Yohan Rojas’ throw hit the third baseman exactly. Ohtani tried hard to avoid the tag, but as he was completely out, the Angels left a regret that they could not continue scoring chances.
Ohtani made up for his disappointment in base play in the top of the 5th in the top of the 8th inning. In the top of the 8th inning, trailing 5-6, Ohtani got a walk against Philadelphia’s changed pitcher, Gregory Soto, in a situation where there was no runner, and Ohtani played a ‘multi-on-base’ game. Afterwards, Ohtani settled on third base on a walk by Brand Drury and a hit by Randall Grichick, and tied the game by stepping home on a hit by Hunter Renfro.
Ohtani entered the final at-bat with one out and first base in the top of the ninth inning, 8-8, but this time, Craig Kimbrel struck out three pitches and finished the game with one hit in four at-bats. Ohtani could not directly lead the team to victory, but on this day the Angels got out of the swamp of three consecutive losses after a fierce slugfest.
In the 2nd inning, where the Angels faced 0-0, Hunter Renfro fired the first two-run gun and succeeded in overpowering the team. Then, in the bottom of the second inning, John Rojas scored a timely hit and Garrett Stubbs scored a ground ball, and the game started at 2-2. After that, a fierce fighting began.
The Angels regained the lead. The Angels got their hands on the flow again in the top of the fifth when Andrew Velasquez brought home a runner on a squeeze bunt. And Ohtani and Drury pulled out consecutive timely hits, widening the gap to 5-2. But the joy didn’t last long. Philadelphia chased a run in the bottom of the 5th inning, but in the bottom of the 6th, Trey Turner hit a three-runner and succeeded in turning the score around 5-6.
The Angels took the lead again by scoring two runs in the top of the eighth inning, but in the bottom of the eighth, Philadelphia got two runs again, and the tossing and turning was repeated. But it was the Angels who had the last laugh. The Angels scored a whopping 3 runs, including a come-from-behind home run by attacker Drury in the top of the 9th inning, and won 10-8, escaping from a 3-game losing streak based on a reversal victory.
