‘A blow to Choi Ji-man → Individual highest 4 home runs’ Ohtani self-blame “Depending on the content of the pitch, I was attacked by a mistake”

Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels) is having a ‘summer of trials’ on the mound. This time, Choi Ji-man (32) hit a blow, setting the record for the most home runs in a single individual game.온라인바카라

On the 22nd (Korean time), Ohtani played as the team’s starting pitcher and second batter in the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the Pittsburgh Pirates held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA. It was Ohtani’s 19th start of the season.

Even at the beginning of the game, Ohtani showed moderately bad pitching. After two shots in the first inning, Carlos Santana was sent out on a walk, but Choi Ji-man in the fourth was turned into a floating ball in right field. Ohtani, who struck out three batters in a row after hitting the lead batter in the second inning, showed off a smooth start by skipping the third inning with a triple strike.

However, Ohtani began to kneel for home runs from the fourth inning. The beginning was Choi Ji-man. Choi Ji-man, who entered the plate after one out in the top of the 4th inning, hit a high cutter at the end of a 5-pitch game with Ohtani, and hit a solo home run with a batting speed of 171.7 km and a distance of 121.9 m over the right-middle fence. Ohtani, shaken, gave up a back-to-back home run to the next hitter, Henry Davis.

In the attack at the bottom of the 4th inning, the Angels took a 5-2 lead with five runs in a big inning, including Mike Moustakas’ 3-run turnaround. However, Ohtani gave up a superior two-run home run to Jack Schwinski at first base safely in the top of the fifth inning and was chased.

Again, with the Angels posting 3 runs at the end of the 5th inning and raising the hot scoring support, Ohtani came on the mound in the 6th inning as well. However, Ohtani was hit again by a solo arch by Davis, who gave up a home run in the fourth inning. It was the moment of giving up the 5th point.

On this day, Ohtani recorded 6 hits (4 homers), 1 walk, 9 strikeouts and 5 runs in 6⅓ innings. Although he won his 8th win of the season amidst the performance of the other line, his ERA rose from 3.50 to 3.71. In particular, the four home runs Ohtani hit were the most since his major league debut in 2018. It was a difficult game to be satisfied with except for the starting win and strikeout.

Ohtani is recording 5 runs in all 3 games he started in July. Ohtani, who had an ERA of 2.91 until May, is now in danger of being threatened with an ERA in the 3-point range.

According to Japan’s Nikkan Sports, Ohtani blamed herself after the game, saying, “Just looking at the results (the content of pitching) was not good.” He confessed, “The feeling of pitching was not bad, but in the end, the result is everything.” However, he explained that “today was fine” about the nail problems that had plagued him before.

Regarding his personal record of 4 home runs, Ohtani analyzed, “It feels like the opponent hit the wrong pitch for sure.” Although he won the starting match, Ohtani calmly prepared for the next game, saying, “I am happy with the victory, but I personally reflect on it.” Still, Ohtani found a good point, saying, “The other line helped, and it was the only good point that came up in the 7th inning.”
