Defending MVP Jojun Ohtani looks for sixth win of the season

The big matchup of the four-game series between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Texas Rangers will take place on Friday, April 16.

Shohei Ohtani (LAA), the American League’s second-leading strikeout pitcher, and Nathan Eovaldi (TEX), the American League’s second-leading wins pitcher, will start the game. It will be interesting to see if Ohtani can get his sixth win of the season against Iboldi, who has been pitching extremely well in his last seven games with a one-run ERA.

토토사이트 However, LA Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani, who is aiming to regain the American League MVP, has only won five games this season. In his last start against Seattle on October 10, Ohtani allowed three runs on three hits, five walks, and six strikeouts in five innings, surpassing the 100-strikeout mark for the season and ranking second in the American League in strikeouts.

Meanwhile, Ohtani’s bat has been on fire. In Game 1 against the Texas Rangers on April 13, he hit a pair of multi-homer games (#19 and #20) to take over the American League home run lead from Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), and then followed it up with his 21st home run two days later to close the gap on Judge. This marks the third consecutive season that Ohtani has recorded 100+ strikeouts and 20+ home runs.

Starting for the Rangers against Ohtani will be Nathan Eovaldi. Iboldi is second in the American League in wins with a 9-2 record this season. There was some skepticism about Iboldi, who has been in a Texas uniform since the beginning of the season, but in May, Iboldi was named Pitcher of the Month after going 4-0 with a 0.96 ERA in five starts. In one start against the Los Angeles Angels, Iboldi pitched eight innings, allowing five hits, two walks, and striking out five to earn the win. It will be interesting to see if Iboldi can get another win against the Angels and pick up his 10th win of the season.
