Los Angeles Angels ‘two-hitter’ star Shohei Ohtani (29) is pouring out records.
On the 18th (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani recorded 1 hit (home run), 2 RBIs and 1 walk in 4 at-bats in an away game against the Kansas City Royals in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at Kaufman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. His batting average for the season slightly dropped from 301 to 30.00.
Although the team suffered a 9-10 come-from-behind loss, Ohtani hit his 150th career home run and his 23rd of the season.토토사이트
Starting as the second designated hitter, Ohtani hit a solo home run in the 7th inning when the team was leading 7-2, targeting right-hander bullpen Taylor Clark’s first pitch of 88.4 mph changeup. He added a home run in two games since the Texas expedition on the 16th.
MLB.com noted, “If Ohtani, who doubles as a two-hitter, plays in all of the Angels’ remaining 89 games, the 51 home run pace will be a career high.” Most of all, on this day, several records were set with one home run.
Ohtani continued his 14-game hitting streak with a home run that day. This is the longest personal record this season. So far, the longest individual record in the major leagues is 18 consecutive hits from September 15 to October 4, 2022.
In addition, Ohtani managed to get on base in 21 consecutive games. This record is the longest in Major League Baseball this season. In addition, he hit 6 consecutive games, which is the longest in the major leagues this season and tied for the longest personal record.메이저놀이터 추천
Ohtani got a walk and made a long hit in six consecutive games, including the game on the 18th. Ohtani stood shoulder to shoulder with Billy Warber in 1937, Mickey Mantle in 1995, and Barry Bonds in 1997. One more slugging and walks in one more game would put him in a tie with Babe Ruth (seven games in 1921).
Many media, including the Japanese media ‘The Answer’, are paying attention to Ohtani’s record feast. The media reported the news of Ohtani, saying, “American fans said, ‘He is more than Babe Ruth’ and ‘In addition, Ohtani is also a pitcher.'”
