Los Angeles Angels Shohei Ohtani led a 2-0 joint shutout against the underdog Washington Nationals.
On the 12th (Korean time), Ohtani took the mound as a starter in the National League match against Washington at Angel Stadium and won his second win of the season with 1 hit, 5 walks and 6 strikeouts in 7 innings. 0.47 ERA.
From last year to three games this year, he blocked 2 points or less in 10 consecutive games, surpassing Nolan Ryan’s previous record. Hall of Fame member Ryan played for the Angels from 1972 to 1979.
Valley Sports commentator Mark Kubja, who is in charge of the Angels, said, “Today, my pitching was shaken a lot, but my curve command was very good, so I only allowed one hit. He pitches better and better. It is important to win when the team needs it.” With 92 pitches and 55 strikes, the strike rate was 60%.
Ohtani has started three games this year and is fighting back with 6 hits, 24 strikeouts and 1 run in 19 innings. It is the first time since Kirk McCaskill in 1989 that the Angels have allowed one run in three starts. McCaskill gave up one run in 20.1 innings in three games. However, he only struck out four.
The hitter who got Ohtani’s only hit that day was former Sandy Lee, and Padres shortstop CJ Abrahams hit a double with two out and first base on the right field in the top of the fourth inning. However, Washington failed to score the first run when Keibert Luitz, who walked on base, stopped at third base as a slow-footed catcher. The next batter, Michael Chavis, was out on a shortstop grounder.
At the end of the inning, the Angels overcame the risk of conceding runs, and got the lead with Anthony Rendon’s sacrifice fly on the bases loaded with Ohtani’s hit and two hits from Josiah Gray, the Washington starter. Then, in the 6th inning, catcher Logan Ohopi, who formed a battery with Ohtani, scored an additional run with his 4th home run of the season and scored a 2-0 victory. 메이저사이트
For the Angels, left-hander Jose Quihada in the 8th inning and Carlos Esteves in the 9th inning gave up only one walk in two innings and blocked Washington’s batting line to preserve Ohtani’s victory. Ohtani maintained a batting average of 0.300 with 1 hit and 2 strikeouts in 4 at-bats.
The Angels, who lost 6-4 to Washington the previous day, won 2-0 to record 6 wins and 5 losses in the season. Washington, which finished at the bottom of the National League last season (55 wins and 107 losses), went 4 wins and 8 losses this season.
