There is no exception for seniors.
Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels) fired the third gun of the season against his high school senior, Yusei Kikuchi (Toronto Blue Jays). Ohtani recorded 2 RBIs, 2 RBIs and 3 runs in 5 at-bats that day (including a home run).
Ohtani started as the designated hitter in the home game against Toronto held at Angel Stadium on the 10th (Korean time). On the opposing mound, Kikuchi, who was his senior in high school and the object of admiration, came up. Ohtani’s fire bat did not cool down even to the senior who envied him.
Ohtani, who was on his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning, hit a ground ball toward first base. First base runner Mike Trout was forced out at second base, and Ohtani landed safely on first base. As the Toronto outfielder missed Rendon’s fly ball, 토토사이트 Ohtani quickly went home and scored.
In the second at-bat in the bottom of the third inning, he hit a home run that went over the middle wall. Kikuchi threw a knee-high slider, but Ohtani hit it and made it a two-run home run.
Ohtani became the lead batter at the end of the 5th inning and even recorded a heavy hit, but the follow-up hitter, Rendon, withdrew with a fly ball and could not score.
The Angels had a huge 6-0 lead into the top of the 6th inning, but starting pitcher Reed Detmans faltered sharply and allowed the game to tie. After that, they played an extra game until the 10th inning, but lost by a score of 11-12.
