Los Angeles Angels Ohtani Shohei (29) showed a historic hit, but regretted the sluggish performance on the mound.
On the 16th (Korean time), Ohtani started as a third hitter and starting pitcher against the Baltimore Orioles held at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, and had 4 hits in 5 at-bats, 1 home run, 3 RBIs, 3 runs, 1 walk, 7 He recorded a victory with 4 hits (3 home runs), 2 walks, 5 strikeouts and 5 runs in an inning.
Ohtani, who hit hits, homers, and triples in the batting, did not achieve a cycling hit due to lack of doubles, but fired an unbelievably large home run. In the 4th inning, when both teams were tied 4-4, Ohtani hit a 80.3 mph (129.2 km/h) curveball from Baltimore starting pitcher Grayson Rodriguez and hit a come-from-behind three-run home run. It is a super-sized home run with an exit velocity of 114.6 miles (184.4 km) and a distance of 456 feet (139.0 m).
With 4 hits and 1 walk, Ohtani went 5 bases, his first start in 59 years since Mel Stottlemeyer of the Yankees went 5-for-5 in a road game against the Washington Senators (now Texas Rangers) in 1964. became a pitcher.
In spite of these performances, Ohtani could not hide his regret. This is because he allowed three home runs on the mound. MLB.com, the official major league media outlet, said, “Ohtani pointed out his performance on the mound, which was not perfect, and said he did not think much of the day’s performance.”
Ohtani, who recorded 98 pitches, used a variety of pitches, including cutter (27 pitches), sweeper (26 pitches), four-seam (25 pitches), splitter (14 pitches), sinker (5 pitches), and curveball (1 pitch). The highest four-seam speed reached 99.3 miles (159.8 km), and the sweeper was powerful with a 40% miss rate, but it was regrettable that he continued to allow long hits.
“I think these records follow because the sample size is so small,” Ohtani said. So I don’t look at those records in detail. It started poorly today as we allowed a lot of goals. That’s my thoughts on today’s game,” he said, regretting his sluggish performance on the mound more than his performance at the plate.
However,토토사이트 coach Phil Nevin paid more attention to Ohtani’s performance in batting rather than poor pitching. “I think there was a little bit of anger behind Ohtani’s amazing swing,” Nevin said. It’s a really impressive match,” he said, welcoming Ohtani’s performance.
