Osaka (Japan)] Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) scored his first hit after joining the Japanese national team with a home run. Kyocera Dome was filled with passionate cheers that seemed to leave.
On the 6th, Ohtani started as the designated hitter in the third match against the Hanshin Tigers of the Nippon Professional Baseball at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan, and drew an arch in the second at-bat.
On the 1st, Ohtani returned to Japan after completing his major league spring training schedule. Up until now, Ohtani, who had only trained for jet lag, was put on the starting list as soon as he was officially allowed to play on the 6th.메이저사이트
In the first at-bat of the first inning, Ohtani struck out on a swing against Hanshin’s starting pitcher Hiroto Saiki, and was silenced. However, at the beginning of the 3rd inning with a 1-0 lead, Saiki’s 4th pitch 136km fork ball was pumped with all his might in a chance to score with 2 out, 1st and 2nd base.
As Ohtani’s bat left the bat, the Kyocera Dome started to buzz. And when Ohtani’s well-hit ball went over the wall in the middle of Kyocera Dome and hit the second floor, Kyocera Dome was filled with fervent cheers.
In his first at-bat, Ohtani struck out Saiki, who threw only a fastball, and Ohtani, who lost his pride, responded with a home run in his second at-bat, giving Japan a 4-0 lead.
