Anaheim, California-In the first inning alone, Masahiro Otani threw a ball at nearly 101 mph, hit a home run, and it jumped off the bat at 115 mph.
By the time he left, the two-way star of the Los Angeles Angels had been dazzled on the mound and the plate, performing a historic two-way performance.
After the end of Sho-time, Jared Walsh made his impressive efforts to win another victory for Halos.
Ohtani both smashed a 451-foot home run and made two shots in the fifth inning. Walsh hit a strike home run to end Sunday night’s 7-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox.
Ohtani said through his translator: “I am very happy to have such a game, which will bring me a lot of confidence.”
Ohtani stepped onto the mound and occupied second place in the Angels’ batting order, which was another milestone in his unique career. He was only the third pitcher in 45 seasons. He hit for himself in a game with a designated batsman, and since Jack Dunleavy did it for the Cardinals in 1903. The second pitcher.
Although he lost a three-game lead in the fifth inning and avoided injury in a home run collision, Otani surprised both teams by his abilities.
“He is everything we think, right?” Angel Manager Joe Madden said. “That’s a complete baseball player. He just needs a chance to do this. … what he did tonight is very special, you will see more.”
Leury García of Chicago put it more succinctly: “Oh, he hates it.”
The same was true for Walsh, who hit two homers, including a three-game losing streak by Matt Foster, which ended the Angels in their four-game opening series. Beat Chicago in the third game.
In that wild first game, the Otani duo shot the highest percentage of field goals this season. They were the hard hits of any starting pitcher and any batsman this season. Since the Statcast database of Major League Baseball (MLB) began tracking in 2015, Otani took the lead in running a home run on the Chicago Dylan Cease arena is the worst home run for the Angels.
Even Ohtani’s 109.7 mph in the middle of the second inning was hit harder than any other ball in the game except his own home run.
Ohtani was not allowed to enter the first four innings, but his control problems contributed to Chicago’s three-inning rallies in the fifth inning. Ohtani left after passing and catcher Max Stassi throwing errors, causing a collision between Ohtani and AL MVP José Abreu.
Otani ended with seven strikeouts and five walks, showing his typical extraordinary speed and vacillating duet.
David Fletcher and Justin Upton opened for the Angels. Chicago ranked fifth in three consecutive rounds without RBI, and Walsh regained Los Angeles’ lead in fifth-but Raisel Iglesias (1-0), who is closer to the new Angels, couldn’t be completely. Take out a five-point hit.
Chicago tied again in the ninth game, and Nick Madrigg finished second in a throw error by Iglesias, who tried to line up Adam Eaton’s singles player after putting him on the court. In the third.
The White Sox scored four points even though they were still behind 11 by 0 when they ranked 11th in scorer.
Chicago manager Tony La Russa said: “I just told them that this is one of the most impressive losses I remember.” “Look at everything that happened in that game, and The fact that they did not give up is a good indication of the resilience and courage of this club as we move forward.”
José Ruiz (0-1) gave up the leading singles in ninth, while Dexter Fowler entered the game with a rare AL double key.
White Sox: SS Tim Anderson (SS Tim Anderson) has been leading in the first game, due to a tight left hamstring, he did not participate in the second half of the game. La Russa said they thought the injury was not serious.
Angel: Ohtani general manager Perry Minasian (Perry Minasian) said that he left the game with aches and pains, but was not injured. Otani said: “So far, I feel pretty good.” “It’s not as bad as it looks.”
Sense to sense
Ohtani even mastered the 28-year-old White Sox rookie Yermín Mercedes. In the past two games, his eight consecutive professional league Grand Slam shooting percentages are incredible. Ohtani defeated Mercedes in the second and fourth innings, reducing the average level of designated batsmen to 0.727.
Mercedes later won the ninth championship in three games, beating an infield single.
