Ohtani hitless silence, instead of a walk, contributed to the team’s second consecutive win
Los Angeles Angels Shohei Ohtani contributed to the team’s victory.
On the 20th (Korean time), Ohtani started as the designated hitter in the 2023 Major League Minnesota Twins match held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA, and recorded no hits and 1 walk in 3 at-bats.
Ohtani, who hit the 10th home run of the season the previous day (19th), did not continue the good mood of the previous day, but made up for his performance by going on base by choosing a walk that served as a stepping stone to the team’s final hit. His season batting average went from 0.292 to 0.287.
The Angels are on a two-game winning streak with a 5-4 win. Mickey Moniak and Hunter Renfro each swung 3 hits. Minnesota lost the game 2 times in a row.
Ohtani was out with one out and first base in the bottom of the first inning, striking out on a swing against Minnesota starter Joe Ryan. He also struck out with two outs on second base in the bottom of the third inning with a 1–0 lead, ending the inning.
At the bottom of the 5th inning with a 3-0 lead, Ohtani, who entered the third at-bat after two outs, hit a sharp ball, but was out with a fly ball to the left fielder and could hardly produce a hit.스포츠토토
Ohtani got on base with a walk from second out and first base in the bottom of the seventh inning when the score was tied 4-4. After becoming 2nd, 1st and 2nd base, Renfro hit a timely hit with 1 RBI, making it 5-4. The Angels kept a one-point lead and won.
