Ohtani pitched 10K in 7 innings but failed to reach a milestone in 103 years
Ohtani Shohei (27, Los Angeles Angels), the “all-around pitching and hitting” failed to achieve a milestone in 103 years again this time.
Otani took the mound as a starting pitcher in a home game against the Seattle Mariners in the 2021 Major League Baseball at Anaheim Angels Stadium in California on the 27th (Korea Standard Time).
Otani pitched well with five hits and one run in seven innings, striking out ten, but failed to achieve 10 wins of the season as the pitcher was replaced in the top of the eighth inning, a 1-1 draw.
If Otani had won his 10th win of the season on this day, he could have made a milestone in 103 years. It remains in his name as a player who has achieved both double-digit home runs and wins in a single season. This is a record left only by Babe Ruth in Major League Baseball history in 1918. Ruth recorded 13 wins and 11 home runs at the same time.
Otani pitched well without losing a point until the sixth inning and took the mound in the top of the seventh inning with Kurt Suzuki’s left-handed solo home run (season 6th) in the bottom of the second inning. However, Otani allowed a 1-1 tie as the 85-mile (137km) slider thrown to Jared Kellenick led to a superior solo home run (season 14), and eventually failed to meet the winning pitcher requirements as the Angels failed to hunt for runs in the bottom of the seventh inning. It was Ohtani’s 15th home run of the season.
The Angels put left-handed pitcher Jose Quida on the mound in the top of the eighth inning. Otani already recorded 112 pitches, so there was no reason to take the mound anymore 파워볼사이트
Ohtani, who also played as the second batter on the day, left one hit in three at-bats. He only hit a ground ball to first base in the bottom of the first inning and a flyout to center field in the bottom of the third inning, but hit a heavy hit in the bottom of the sixth inning. Otani’s batting average for the season remained unchanged at 45 home runs and 98 RBIs as he failed to add home runs and RBIs.
