Ohtani scores two hits, three walks, wins game
Ohtani stops pitching, gets two hits and three walks as a hitter to help win the game
Ohtani the pitcher may no longer be seen in 2023, but his bat is still sharp.
Shohei Ohtani (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), a two-way baseball prodigy who plays in Major League Baseball (MLB), batted four times and drove in a run in his team’s first game since the official announcement that he would no longer pitch this season.
Ohtani batted second in the lineup against the visiting New York Mets at Citi Field in New York City on June 26, going 1-for-2 with a run scored and three walks.
Ohtani is batting .305 on the season, and his two doubles and three walks combined to raise his season OPS to 1.073.
Facing fellow Japanese pitcher Senga Godai (Mets), Ohtani drew a straightaway walk in the first inning before pulling a cut fastball from Senga that dropped into the left field seats with one out in the bottom of the third inning.
The Angels scored two runs on a sacrifice fly and an RBI single with runners on second and third.
Ohtani walked in the fifth and was caught stealing in the eighth on a grounder to first base. In the ninth, he reached first base on an intentional walk.
The Angels went on to win 3-1.
Ohtani was diagnosed with ligament damage in his right elbow two days earlier and will not take the mound anymore this season.
As a left-handed hitter, his left arm and left hand are not impaired in his more important at-bats, so he will be limited to pinch-hitting.
Ohtani has had a scalpel in his elbow once since reaching the big leagues in late 2018, so it’s still unclear if he’ll have another surgery or if other treatments will help him deal with the pain.
However, 카지노사이트킴 the general consensus is that another surgery will cost him a lot of money in free agency after this season.
