Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Angels) never stops breaking records. He became the first ML player to do so since 1900. He topped the leaderboards as a hitter and pitcher. He leads the league in home runs and ERA.
Ohtani started the second game of the 2023 Major League Baseball World Series against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on April 16 (ET). The right-hander pitched six innings of one-run ball with one walk and three strikeouts to earn his sixth win of the season. He added a win in a month after a victory against Baltimore on March 16. Lowered his ERA to 3.29.
At the plate, he went 1-for-2 with a home run and two walks. His .301 batting average broke the triple barrier and his 22nd home run of the season moved him into a tie for the major league lead in home runs. His OPS (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage) was 1.002.안전놀이터
June was even better. He’s batting .426 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs.
After that game, Ohtani made major league history. He’s an icon in the making.
According to MLB.com’s Sarah Lance, Ohtani created the first record in modern baseball (since 1900). It’s a feat only Idoryu can accomplish.
With his 22nd home run of the season, Ohtani moved into a tie for the major league lead in home runs with New York Mets’ Pete Alonso (29).
He’s also the best pitcher in the game. With six innings of two-run ball, Ohtani has the lowest ERA among pitchers with at least 70 innings pitched. Ohtani’s batting average is just .178.
Fans are calling him a “legend,” “unbelievable,” “this is a record,” “MVP,” and more.
