Ohtani’s bat, which turned into a ground ball to the second baseman in his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning, returned fiercely from the bottom of the third inning, when the Angels led 3-0. He attacked opposing starting pitcher Logan Gilbert’s fourth pitch and produced a hit that fell into the middle right corner. Afterwards, Mike Trout’s right-handed hit landed him on third base, and he homered on Matt Theis’ two-run, right-handed hit to score a run.
Ohtani, who gained momentum, continued the streak of hits in the bottom of the 4th inning. Entering the at-bat from 1st and 2nd base safely, he hit the first pitch of Matt Bresh, a Seattle right-hander bullpen resource, and scored a hit that fell in the middle of the right. This time, unfortunately, he didn’t come out with a follow-up hit, and he didn’t have a relationship with the score.
After striking out in the bottom of the 6th inning, Ohtani finished the game with a right-handed hit in the bottom of the 8th inning, completing the game with 3 hits.
Meanwhile, thanks to Ohtani’s performance, the Angels defeated Seattle 9-4. As a result of the day, the Angels recorded 36 wins and 31 losses. Seattle, which failed to win in a row, has 31 wins and 33 losses.
Angels starting pitcher Griffin Canning (5 innings, 7 hits, 7 strikeouts, 3 runs) earned his 5th win (2 losses) of the season with a decent pitch. Including Ohtani, Brandon Drury (2 hits in 5 at-bats, 1 RBI), Tais (2 hits in 4 at-bats, 3 RBIs), and Jack Neto (2 hits in 4 at-bats, 2 home runs, 2 RBIs) led the attack wielding fire bats.
Seattle suffered from the sluggish performance of starting pitcher Gilbert (8 hits, 2 strikeouts, 1 walk, 6 runs in 3 innings). 4 losses (4 wins) of the season. Thai France (3-for-3) and Teoscar Hernandez (3-for-4, 1 homer, 2 RBIs) had a three-hit game, but the team lost.
