Why play baseball in the morning? From the marathon to the rain, Ohtani’s unresolved day “It was a good experience”

It was an unresolved day in many ways for Shohei Ohtani (29) of the Los Angeles Angels. 

On the 18th (Korean time), Ohtani started the 2023 Major League Baseball away game against the Boston Red Sox held at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and was knocked out early with 1 hit, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts and 1 run in 2 innings. He went down to 31 pitches without a win or loss. 

It was because of the rain. The match started at 12:06 pm, 56 minutes later than the originally scheduled 11:10 am due to rain. Even after entering the game, the rain came and went. In the beginning of the 3rd inning, where the Angels were leading 5-1, the game stopped at 2nd, 1st and 2nd base. As the game was stopped for 1 hour and 25 minutes, Ohtani, whose shoulders felt cold, did not go to the mound in the bottom of the third inning.  카지노사이트

Ohtani, who gave up one point in the first inning, struck out fellow Japanese player Masataka Yoshida with a 98.4-mile four-seam fastball on a swing, and then blocked the second inning with a three-way strikeout, including two strikeouts. The rain was all the more regretful for Ohtani as the Angels were leading 5-1 amid ample scoring support from the other line. 

According to local media such as ‘MLB.com’, Ohtani said after the game, “I couldn’t control it. There was nothing I could do.” 

Ohtani continued, “The start of the game was too early for the rain to come and go. that was the hardest It felt like playing while it hadn’t happened yet.”
