Ohtani, MLB's Second Manlupo... Tied for First With 43 Homers on the Season
Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels) hit the second home run in his personal career in the Major League (MLB).
Ohtani, who drew the 43rd season arch, rose to the 카지노사이트 top of the MLB home run tie with Matt Olsen (Atlanta Braves).
He is the sole leader in home runs in the American League.
On the 19th (Korean time), Ohtani started as the designated hitter in the 2023 MLB Tampa Bay Rays home game held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA, and played an active role with 2 hits, 4 RBIs and 2 points in 5 at-bats.
In the bottom of the second inning, 1-1, with 2 outs and bases loaded, Tampa Bay right hander Erasmo Ramirez hit a 145 km/h cut fastball that went over the right wall and hit a home run.
The ball flew 118.5m at 164km/h.
On May 10 last year, in a home game against Tampa Bay, Ohtani, who shot his first MLB personal grand total, also hit his second grand slam home run against Tampa Bay.
Ohtani, who sent the ball over the fence for two consecutive days, tied for the lead with Olsen, who failed to add a home run that day, with his 43rd home run of the season.
His MLB personal career home runs increased to 170, and he came close to hitting the most home runs (175) by a Japanese big leaguer by Hideki Matsui by five runs.
The MLB Asian player's most home run record is Choo Shin-soo (now SSG Landers) with 218 home runs.
Despite Ohtani's performance, the Angels lost to Tampa Bay 6-9 after an extended bloody battle.
The Angels succeeded in a 'triple play' in the defense in the top of the ninth inning, catching three out counts for one batted ball from first and third base safely.
Tampa Bay Harold Ramirez hit a ground ball in front of the shortstop, and the Angels caught two out counts with a linked play from shortstop-second baseman-first baseman.
At this time, third base runner Yandi Dias died while digging home, and the out count increased by one more.
The Angels succeeded in a triple play for the first time in 26 years since 1997.
However, luck in the top of the ninth did not lead to overtime.
The Angels suffered a painful defeat, conceding three runs in the top of the 10th inning.
