Ohtani who met an old colleague and was silent…”No hit in 5G, strike out in the 8th inning”

At the 2024 Major League Baseball home game against the Texas Rangers held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 14th (Korea time), Ohtani started as the second designated hitter and recorded no hit in four times at bat. The Dodgers lost 1-3. Ohtani’s batting average for this season fell to .36 from .311.

Japanese media “Sponichi Annex” said, “Otani was silent with no hits in three at-bats against Michael Lorenzen, his teammate during the LA Angels.”

On the day, starting pitcher Lorenzen made his big league debut with the Cincinnati Reds in 2014. He played for the Angels in 2022. Ohtani was an old teammate of the team for one season before joining the Dodgers as a free agent.

Ohtani grounded out to the second base in his first at-bat in the first inning when his team gave up the lead 0-2. Lorenzen’s second pitch pulled an 85.8 mph changeup, and the ball didn’t go beyond the infield. 토토사이트 추천

In the second at-bat in the third inning, he was caught with an outfield fly ball. Lorenzen hit a sinker at 95.2 mph on his sixth pitch with two outs and runners on first base, which was caught by Texas left fielder Wyatt Langford.

He also failed to garner a hit in his third at-bat. Ohtani took the batter’s box with one out and no runner in the sixth inning when his team was losing 0-3. He hit a cutter at 91.1 miles per hour on Lorenzen’s second pitch, and this time he hit a grounder toward the second base.

In his fourth at-bat, he struck out three pitches against Texas right-hander David Robertson. He failed to take advantage of his chance with one out and runners on the first and third bases in the eighth inning when his team was losing 1-3. Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman also struck out.

“I had no hit in five games. My batting average for this season has dropped to .306 as well. My team lost as well. It is our second win in a row,” the media reported.
