Otani takes a full day off for her first ‘great record’ in 104 years
LA Angels superstar Shohei Otani took a good rest of the day for the “greatest record in 104 years.”
Otani missed the 2022 Major League game against the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland Coliseum on the 8th. The Angels managed to win 1-0 after a pitching battle.
This season, Otani used to play as a designated hitter and as a starting pitcher. This is the fourth time that he has not played at all. It has been 52 days since the Seattle Mariners match on June 18.
At that time, Otani played as the starting pitcher and the third batter against Seattle on the 17th. He had two hits in four at-bats and six scoreless innings as a pitcher. led the team to a 4-1 victory. He reported five wins (four losses) in the season and missed the next day.
This year, Otani was more mature in two and two, and strode closer to Babe Ruth in 1918.
As a pitcher, he has 9 wins, 7 losses, and a 2.83 ERA in 105 innings in 18 games. As a batter, he has a batting average of 0.253 in 456 at-bats, a on-base percentage of 0.344, a slugging percentage of 0.492, an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.837 and 24 home runs and 65 RBIs. Arithmetically, 13 wins and 35 home runs are possible.
If you add one win as a pitcher, you will be on par with Babe Ruth. It is the first feat since 1918 to achieve a double-digit victory and a double-digit home run at the same time. Babe Ruth had 13 wins and 11 home runs. If Otani wins 10 games, he will record 10 wins and more than 20 home runs for the first time in Major League history.
But that 10 win isn’t easy. Otani was caught in the ninth. After winning nine games, the team lost three consecutive games. Otani scored his ninth win of the season against Houston on July 14. They lost 6 innings against Atlanta on July runs in 6 2 innings against Texas on July 29, and 3 runs (two earned runs) in 5 3 innings against Oakland on August 4.
This is the fourth time I’m going to try again. Otani has two wins, three losses and a 3.49 ERA in seven games against Oakland, but at the Coliseum, he struggled with four games, one win, two losses, and a 5.50. 안전놀이터
