Throw well, hit well, hit well, hit well, hit 6 scoreless innings, multi-hit, hit, and hit. Team’s losing streak
LA Angels’ “Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-Two-T
The Angels won 4-1 in an away game against the Seattle Mariners in the 2022 Major League Baseball at T-Mobile Park in Seattle, Washington on the 17th (Korea Standard Time). The Angels, which had been losing three consecutive games after losing 1-4 against the New York Mets on the 13th, broke the losing streak thanks to Otani’s performance.
Otani showed the same side of last year’s American League MVP with his “Two-Two-Two-Two-Ta”
He took the mound as a starting pitcher and pitched six innings with three hits, six strikeouts, two walks, and no runs, and as a batter, he was placed in the third batting order and had two hits in four at-bats.
He went to bat first. Trout picked up a walk after one out in the top of the first inning, and Otani, who stood in his first at-bat, only made a ground ball in front of the pitcher. Otani stepped on first base, but the leading runner Trout was out.
After the Angels attack without scoring, Otani took the mound and gave up a walk to Winker and Suarez a left-center hit after two outs against the Seattle batters and even threw a wild pitch, which led to a two-out, second and third base crisis, but took a breather.
In the bottom of the second inning, Otani dedicated the Seattle attack to Fraser after two outs, but he handled Moore with a fly ball to left field and blocked it without much crisis.
Later, in the top of the third inning, Ward’s right-center hit and Trout’s two-run home run broke out after two outs. Otani, who entered the next at-bat, hit a right-center hit. Walsh’s left-center hit went to second base, but no more follow-up hits came out.
Otani was supported by Trout’s two-run home run and pitched steadily until the sixth inning as a starter. The Angels’ 2-0 lead was also followed. Otani hit a left-handed hit in the fifth inning to complete the multi-hit game.
Otani’s pitching mission lasted until the sixth inning. The batter couldn’t produce any more hits, only a grounder to the second baseman in the seventh inning, but his teammate Trout hit one more two-run shot in the top of the seventh inning, leading the Angels 4-0 and maintained a three-run victory after one run in the bottom of the eighth inning 안전놀이터
Otani earned his fifth win (four losses) of the season as a pitcher and raised his batting average to .263 from .259
