.270 batting average, 32 homers, 85 RBI, 11 wins, 2.58 ERA, 181K, all highs
Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani showed a 3-hit, 3-RBI outburst, including his 6th multi-home run of the season, in the Tigers’ home game on the 5th (Japan time 6th). He topped the team’s pitching and batting performance, raising his batting average to .270, the highest this season. In fact, it has become a “22 team crown”.
The Angels’ list of individual stats is outrageous. Trout, who has a .275 batting average, hasn’t reached the regular batting round, so he has a .270 batting average, 32 home runs and 85 RBI, giving the team three crowns. As a pitcher, he has 11 wins, a 2.58 ERA and 181 strikeouts for the team’s Triple Crown.
Plus, when you unravel the results, you can convey even more dread. At bat, 78 runs, 130 hits, 21 doubles, 6 triples, 66 walks, on-base percentage. His 11 stolen bases are second only to Velázquez’s 14 stolen bases, but he still has a “13 crown.”
So far, Otani is the only pitcher on the team to reach the prescribed innings. He also topped the pitching record, leading the team with 136 innings, 1.04 WHIP, .213 batting average, 14 quality starts, 11.98 strikeout rate, and 2.18 walk rate. Even as a pitcher, he won nine crowns.
League-wide, the Yankees judge leads the league with 54 home runs, 117 RBI, 109 runs, .403 on-base percentage, .682 hitting percentage, 1.085 OPS and 80 walks. As a pitcher, Astros Verlander, who just had right elbow surgery, leads the league with a 1.84 ERA, 16 wins and a 0.86 WHIP. Still, US outlet Sporting News tweeted: “The only Angels team manager page is Shohei Ohtani.” I pay attention to the awesomeness of the two-sword style.
