Los Angeles Angels Ohtani Shohei (29) suffered from extreme difficulty in his second appearance of the season. He allowed 6 pitches but did not collapse and made his first win requirement.
On the 6th (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani started an away game against the Seattle Mariners in the 2023 major league held at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington, USA, and made a quality start with 3 hits, 4 walks, 2 walks, 8 strikeouts and 1 run in 6 innings. It is the first time since his major league debut that he allowed two balls that hit his body. The 6 sand dunes is the most record since the Texas Rangers 7 (6 walks, 1 hit ball) on April 21, 2021, but it did not break and sprinkled 111 pitches until the 6th inning, meeting the requirements for the first win. Season ERA 0.00 to 0.75.
On the 31st of last month, which was the season opener, Ohtani pitched 6 innings, 2 hits, 3 walks, 10 strikeouts and no runs against the Oakland Athletics, but the victory was blown away due to bullpen hunting. He became the 26th pitcher ever to record a scoreless run with 10 or more strikeouts in an opening game, but remains the only unlucky case in which the team lost. On the second appearance of the day, he had the first victory requirement in a three-point lead situation.
The beginning of the game was uneasy. From the start of the first inning, Ohtani, who walked Seattle No. 1 Julio Rodriguez after a full count match, was driven to second base safely with a wild throw. He allowed Thai France a walk and allowed Eugenio Suarez to take the lead with a right-handed first pitch on the first and second bases. 메이저놀이터
Ohtani, who caught the first out with the opponent’s runner, allowed an automatic ball due to a pitch clock violation before throwing the first ball to Karl Ralee in the ensuing first out and second base. However, after catching it with a looking strikeout with a 97 mph four-seam fastball, Teosca Hernandez also induced a miss with a splitter and ended the first inning with a 3-pitch strikeout.
In the 2nd inning, there was a risk of 1st and 2nd base safely with a walk and a hit, but Ohtani did not give up a run by inducing Rodriguez to ground to 1st base. In the third inning, the ball continued to shake with only two balls that hit the body. France and Hernandez hit their bodies when the sinker slipped out of their hands. Ohtani’s first major league debut came in the same inning with two hits allowed. He gave Colton Wong a walk and brought the bases loaded crisis without a hit, but ended the inning with difficulty by handling AJ Pollock with a grounder on third base.
However, I found stability from the 4th episode. As a sweeper who was not in control in the beginning, he struck out Rodriguez in the 4th inning, Rodriguez in the 5th inning, and Hernandez in the 6th inning. Following his first three-way walkout in the fifth, he made his first ‘KKK’ inning in the sixth. Hernandez, Wong, and Pollock all struck out on a swing. Against Wong, he struck out with a slow curve of 78.7 miles (126.7 km).
Ohtani, who passed the mound to the bullpen in the 7th inning with a 4-1 lead, finished with 111 total pitches. His control was poor with 64 strikes and 47 balls, but he had a high of 98 mph (157.7 km) and an average of 96.3 mph (155 km). He used a variety of 7 types of pitches, including splitters (8), curves (4) and sliders (3).
