The long-awaited return of Mike Trout (LA Angels) did not bring victory.
The Angels lost 3-4 in the 2023 Major League Baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA on the 23rd (Korean time).
This match was Trout’s comeback match.
On the 4th of last month, Trout suffered a fracture of his left wrist bone during a swing against the San Diego Padres. After being on the operating table, he returned to the big leagues after 50 days and was named in the starting lineup as the second hitter and center fielder.
MLB.com said, “The Angels, who needed a big catalyst to advance into the postseason, had the best reinforcement with the return of Trout, who won the American League (AL) MVP three times.” We had a record of 22 wins,” he pointed out.
Trout, who returned, went 4-for-1 with one hit. However, even if Trout returns and hits, the Angels’ victory is far away.
The Angels, who were trailing 0-1, overturned the game with home runs by Brandon Drury and Mike Moustakas in the second inning. In the 4th inning, Logan Ohapi added one more point with a solo shot.
The Angels, who took a 3-1 lead, conceded 3 runs in the 5th inning and gave the flow as it was. First baseman Nolan Chanuel’s mistake was painful.
In the 2nd, 2nd and 3rd base crisis, Chanuel failed to catch Ellie de la Cruz’s ground ball, and in the meantime, both Cincinnati runners homed.온라인카지노
In the 2nd out 1st base that allowed the score to be tied, Angels pitcher Lucas Giolito hit a double at the right time by Cincinnati Spencer Steer and turned 3-4.
The Angels could not fight back and accepted the defeat by one point.
With Trout returning, the team expected a synergy effect between Trout and Shohei Ohtani, but Ohtani was silent with no hits in 3 at-bats that day and was unable to exert his strength.
With the loss, the Angels recorded a 61-65 season record. The dream of fall baseball is getting farther and farther away.
