Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) had an opportunity to score, but when only first base was empty, he automatically reached base on 4 balls.

Ohtani appeared as designated hitter twice in the 2023 Major League Baseball match against the Oakland Athletics held at the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California, USA on the 3rd (Korean time) and recorded no hits and three walks in two at-bats.

The Angels have Nolan Chanuel (first baseman), Ohtani (designated hitter), Brandon Drury (second baseman), Mike Moustakas (third baseman), Luis Lenhipo (right fielder), Mickey Moniak (center fielder), and Logan Ohapee. The batting line was formed in this order: (catcher) – Trey Cabbage (left fielder) – Kyron Paris (shortstop). The starting pitcher is Griffin Canning.

The Angels scored first in the top of the first inning. Chanuel and Ohtani both reached base through walks after a full count game. After Drury struck out, Moustakas hit a bases loaded opportunity. Then, Lenhipo’s sacrifice fly RBI succeeded in taking the lead.

Ohtani came out as the leadoff hitter in the top of the third inning, but retired with a grounder to shortstop. Shortstop Allen’s handling of the short bounce was good.

In the bottom of the 4th inning, Oakland succeeded in coming back. After one out, Noda hit a single and came out. Then, Rooker caught Canning’s 89.7 mph (approximately 144 km/h) changeup and hit it over the left-center wall.

Oakland, with Paul Blackburn as the starting pitcher, consists of Tony Kemp (left fielder), Jack Gelloff (second baseman), Ryan Noda (first baseman), Brent Rooker (designated hitter), Seth Brown (right fielder), Jordan Diaz (third baseman), and Lawrence. The lineup consisted of Butler (center fielder), Tyler Soderstrom (catcher), and Nick Allen (shortstop).

In the top of the 5th inning, leadoff hitter Paris hit a single and then succeeded in stealing a base. Chanuel retired with a fly ball to center field and Ohtani came to the plate. However, Oakland sent Ohtani out on an automatic 4-ball strike and chose to play against Drury. The choice was right. Drury hit a double play and failed to tie the game.

Another opportunity came to the Angels in the top of the 7th inning. Pinch hitter Eduardo Escobar, who appeared as the leadoff hitter, hit a hit. He was then replaced by pinch runner Andrew Velazquez. Velasquez succeeded in stealing second base and then attempted to steal third base when Paris walked. But this time Soderstrom succeeded in sniping.카지노사이트

Afterwards, Chanuel got on base with a walk, making 1st and 2nd bases with one out. Ohtani at bat. However, Ohtani retired with an infield flyout. Drury is out with a fly ball to center field. The Angels failed to score.

In the top of the 9th inning, the Angels had the last opportunity to score. Pinch hitter Michael Stefanik, who was the leadoff hitter, got on base with a walk. Paris’ sacrifice bunt and Chanuel’s advanced base hit resulted in 2 outs and 3rd base. This time, Otani walked out with the 4th automatic intention. With 2 outs and 1st and 3rd bases, Drury came out to bat. Drury hit Trevor May’s first pitch sweeper at 81.2 miles (approximately 130 km/h), but the game ended with a fly ball to center field.

On this day, Ohtani had three chances to score. On two of those occasions, first base was empty, so he got on base on a 4-ball throw, and on one occasion, with first and second base on base, he came to bat, but retired with an infield fly. Ohtani’s hitting streak ended at four games. However, he has been on base in five consecutive games. He has a season batting average of .306 and an OPS of 1.071.
