In the first inning, he hit the fence straight off the left wing and hit a timely brace, tying his personal best 138 hits last season.
■ Angels 2-1 Mariners (18th time in Japan, Anaheim)
On the 17th (18th Japan time), Angels pitcher Shohei Otani entered the game against the Mariners at home as “3rd pitcher and DH” at the same time, earning his 13th win this season. He pitched well in the 7th inning with 8 strikeouts and 3 hits and no runs. At bat, he hit a timely double for the first time and recorded a season-high 138 hits in Thailand. The team won the competition 2-1 and won two games in a row.
The fastest is 101.1 miles (about 162.7 kilometers). It was a powerful throw that didn’t make you feel the influence of right middle finger blisters. Logged 101.1 miles with 2 kills first and third lead at Santana. Showed the rise of the three retreats. 2nd and 3rd innings and hits eliminated the runners, but no runs were scored. In the 4th inning, all three were deleted, and the 5th and 6th innings were lined up at zero. Starting in the 7th inning with 1 out and 2nd base, he took out Frazier at a two-goro double play, let out a scream and did a guts pose. The defense rate became 2.43.
At bat, he hit a timely preventative double with 1 dead and 1st in the first inning. A direct hit at the top of the left wing fence. It was a thrilling shot with a home run just inches away. At the start of the 4th inning, he walked on base. He walked on second home between 1st and 2nd and 3rd base and Duffy’s ground ball.
With that, the pitch count is 148. That was 14 times more until the first regulation pitching innings of the first major season (162). He is also four to reach 200 strikeouts for the season. The next pitch will be against the Twins on the 23rd. Expectations are high for a rush with the remaining three pitches.
