‘Season out’ right? Writing a record for the first time in 9 years, 40 home runs and 20 stolen bases… Ohtani, a man torn from comics, two days in a row ‘running on four bases’

What is the limit of Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels), who suffered a major injury that ended the season as a pitcher? He literally soared, creating a club record for the first time in 9 years.

On the 27th (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani started as a designated hitter in the 2023 Major League Baseball match against the New York Mets held at Citi Field in Flushing, New York, USA. did.

Ohtani started the first game of the doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds on the 24th, but after only 1⅓ innings, he was withdrawn from the game due to unexpected variables. If it’s the usual Ohtani, even if there is a problem, he doesn’t fall out even at bat, but at the time, it was somewhat unusual that he was replaced in both pitches and hits. And there was a good reason why Ohtani was missing from the checkup.

Ohtani was examined immediately after coming off the mound, and was found to have torn ligaments (UCL) in his right elbow. Elbow ligament rupture is a major injury that can lead to Tommy John surgery, which will necessitate a gap of at least one year. It has not yet been decided whether or not to undergo surgery, but Ohtani will no longer be on the mound as a pitcher for the remainder of the game.

Ohtani, who had been performing like a cartoon, was out of the season as a pitcher for the rest of the season, but the batter was another story. Despite being aware of the ligament rupture, Ohtani appeared as a batter in the second game of the doubleheader, but he also took part in the New York expedition, and the previous day (26th) also played an active role with 1 hit in 2 at-bats, 1 run and 3 points in a confrontation with the Mets. And he succeeded in continuing the good flow.

Despite suffering a serious injury, Ohtani plays as a batter and leads the team to victory. His cartoonish performance was evident. In the first at-bat with no runners and no runners in the first inning, Ohtani got off a good start by hitting a high fastball with ‘power’ after a game with Mets starter Carlos Carrasco that went up to 8 pitches, pulling out a double that hit the middle wall in one bound. . And Brandon Drury’s timely hit gave the Angels a lead.

His performance did not stop at one time. In the top of the second inning, with a 3-0 lead, Ohtani pulled Carrasco’s slider with all his might in the second out and first base, creating a long hit in the right field. The runner on first base was hit enough to hit home, and Ohtani succeeded in landing on the third base with great effort. And this time, Drury’s timely hit hit home and scored the second point.

Even without a hit, Ohtani’s performance was threatening enough. Ohtani completed the ‘3rd on base’ game by getting a walk with no runners out in the top of the 4th inning with a 5-0 lead. At this time, Ohtani completed his 18th steal of the season while stealing second base, and succeeded in stealing third base while giving up, leaving only one stolen base in the second 40 home run-20 stolen base club in his personal career.

And this was linked to one record. According to Sara Langs of MLB.com, Ohtani became the first Angel player to steal bases along with multiple extra-base hits on May 12, 2014, the first time an Angels player has done this in nine years since Howie Kendrick on May 12, 2014.

In the fourth at-bat in the 7th inning as the lead batter, Ohtani stepped down with a floating ball from the center fielder, and in the 8th inning, he got an automatic intentional 4 pitch against former Lotte Giants former Brooks Reilly and finished the game with ‘4 on base’.메이저사이트

In this match, one dizzying scene occurred. The situation was like this. In the bottom of the 4th inning with 1 out on 1st and 2nd base, Mets first base runner Jeff McNeil (Mets) attempted to steal second base. But second base runner Francisco Lindor didn’t move. In response, Angels catcher Logan Ohapi handed the ball to first baseman Trey Cabbage to catch McNeil, who stole the base, in case Lindor, the second base runner, returned home. Then, belatedly, Lindor ran toward third base.

Cabbage, who saw this, sprayed the ball at great speed toward third base, hitting pitcher Chase Silces in the back of the head. Silses, who was hit by Cabbage’s throw, fell flat on the ground, and a very worrisome situation occurred without showing any movement. Angels teammates and trainers hurriedly gathered around Silseth to check his condition, but Silseth couldn’t stand up for several minutes.

Eventually, the Angels and Mets players got down on one knee and waited for Silses’ condition to improve. As a result, after a long time passed, Silces stood up on his own and moved to the dugout with the support of the trainer. As long as he avoided major injuries, the crowd at Citi Field let out a sigh of relief and sent Silces away with warm applause.

And there were some awkward situations. This is why the 86.2 mile (approximately 138.7 km) curveball thrown by Jose Soriano of the Angels struck Pete Alonso in the bottom of the 8th inning. Alonso was almost hit in the head while dodging the ball, but after recording the ball that hit him, he got into an altercation with catcher Ohapi, resulting in a bench clearing as players from both sides poured onto the ground. However, the situation was settled as the players returned to the dugout without a major conflict, and the game ended with a 5-3 Angels victory.
