Los Angeles Angels two-hit wonder Shohei Ohtani failed to add to his wins total. But he did showcase his power with a fastball and a sweeper.

Ohtani pitched six innings of six-hit, 10-strikeout, three-walk, two-run 토토사이트 (one earned) baseball against the Miami Marlins on Monday (Aug. 28) at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, but was unable to pick up the win. The team lost 5-8 in 10 extra innings.

After pitching through six innings, he was relieved by Chase Silseth in the top of the seventh with his team leading 3-2. Silseth gave up a two-run double to Jorge Soler to end Ohtani’s chances of winning the game.

Ohtani’s quest for his sixth win of the season would have to wait, but his 98 mph fastball and ability to get strikeouts with his sweeper was impressive.

His first strikeout came against Soler in the first inning. He touched 97.1 mph on two four-seam fastballs and two consecutive sweepers before turning it into a swinging strikeout.

An infield error and a walk allowed a run to score in the first, but in the third, he got Joey Wendle to swing at a one-strike, one-pitch sweeper and get out of the inning with a 98.5 mph fastball.

For the first out of the second, he threw one 95-mph four-seam fastball and then struck out on two sweepers. It was the fourth time this season that Ohtani pitched a 10-strikeout game. His previous high for strikeouts in a game this season was 13 in five innings at St. Louis on April 4.

Ohtani, who failed to pick up a win after tossing six innings of one-run ball at Minnesota on April 22, did his job as a starter for the second straight game against Miami.

At the plate, Ohtani went 1-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout, dropping his season average to 2.6-9 from 2.7-5. He has gone hitless in his last two games. After leadoff hitter Mike Trout singled to right in the bottom of the ninth with the score tied 4-4, Ohtani was retired on a line drive to third base.

The Angels were down 3-4 with Ohtani on base before Gio Ursella’s tying solo homer in the bottom of the eighth tied the game. After leaving the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth, the Angels gave up four runs in the top of the 10th and one run in the bottom of the 10th to lose the game.
