You’re a little tired, Otani. OPS 1.000. Now Baltimore’s 20th consecutive defeat, the Grim Reaper?
Since starting to take the lead in the home run king race, OPS (On-base plus slugging percentage) of the Otani Shohei (27, LA Angels) has been surpassing 1.000. However, with the recent slight drop in the batting sense, the figure has also begun to fall.
In an away game against Baltimore on the 25th (Korea time), he failed to hit in his first three at-bats, causing the OPS 1.000 to collapse slightly. At this point, the OPS was 0.999.
The Angels scored 13 points until the fourth inning, including 5 points in the second inning, 3 points in the third inning, and 5 points in the fourth inning, but Otani’s bat was silent. The gold tower of the OPS 1.000, which has been kept since June 28, was in danger of breaking.
But Otani’s bat did not remain silent until the end. He finished the game with an OPS of 1.002 with an additional hit in the eighth inning. Although his slugging has slowed down with only two home runs in the last 12 games, he has consistently picked hits and walks, maintaining his on-base percentage.
Compared to August 13, the slugging percentage dropped from 0.655 to 0.634, but the on-base percentage rose from .363 to .368.
Although the Angels suffered from Baltimore’s pursuit at the end of the game, they earned so many points at the beginning of the game. He won 14-8 and continued his postseason hopes. On the other hand, Baltimore lost 19 games in a row. It’s the worst quagmire 토토사이트
The Angels announced Otani’s start on Wednesday. Otani has a two-win ERA of 1.35 in three starts in July and a three-win ERA of 1.80 in three starts in August. If he shows a good performance in the game, he can also challenge the pitcher of the month in August. Baltimore, on the other hand, could win 20 consecutive victories.
