In his first at-bat at Angel Stadium on Tuesday, Los Angeles's two-way star blasted a three-run homer that helped the Angels beat the Cleveland Indians 13-2. Ohtani also smoked a single in the third, his second trip to the plate. He is also the first player with four hits, a home run and a win in his first six games since Boston's Wes Ferrell in 1937, and the first rookie with at least three hits and a win in his first six games since Dutch Stryker of the 1924 Boston Braves. Kluber went eight innings at Seattle on Thursday, giving up two runs in a 2-1 loss. His second start as a hitter comes versus Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin. The Angels had $2.315 million in worldwide signing money to offer Ohtani.
Ohtani could probably use a couple hundred at-bats in the minor leagues to get used to the pitching here, but because of his own pitching prowess, he will have to learn at the major league level. "He showed the ability to just square up a baseball, and he had a great night for us".Читайте также: Sinclair's 'false news' promo, which it made news anchors recite, goes viral
Ohtani picked up a win in his major league pitching debut against the Oakland Athletics, with a fastball that touched 100 miles per hour and some nasty off-speed pitches. Nevertheless, Ohtani has already become the first player since 1920 to both start separate games as a hitter and as a pitcher within the first 10 games of the season. Every move he makes is sure to get dissected by the media. The 23-year-old then returned to the field for a curtain call.
