Baseball Genius’ Shohei Ohtani (29) contributed to his team’s escape from the Los Angeles Angels’ 6th straight victory by exploding the first cannon in the second half.

Ohtani, who started the first home run in the second half, hit his 33rd home run of the season in two games. With this, Ohtani, who is running at the top of the MLB home run division, widened the gap with Matt Olson (30 home runs, Atlanta Braves) in second place to three.
Batter Ohtani this season has a batting average of 0.302, 33 homers, 72 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases in 91 games, with an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 1.047.
Ohtani failed to capture Houston starter Framber Valdez. He struck out swinging with one out in the first inning, stepped out as the leadoff batter in the third inning, retired with a grounder to second base, then struck out again with two outs in the fifth inning, swinging out again.
In the 7th inning with 1 out, Ohtani faced the changed pitcher, Stanik, but this time, he struck out on a swing.
However, with the next blow, Ohtani fired a valuable shot that signaled the pursuit. Ohtani, who appeared as the leading hitter in the 9th inning when the team was trailing 9-12, pulled up the right-hander Ryan Presley’s 89.2 mile (approximately 143.6 km) outer slider and drew a mid-month solo arch.토토사이트 순위
