Ohtani, erasing his weaknesses with scoring chances, hits a walk-off hit for the first time in 4 years

Otani receives congratulatory water baptism from colleagues

Shohei Ohtani (29, Los Angeles Dodgers), who is concentrating on batting this season, is being reborn as a flawless hitter.

Ohtani started as the number 2 designated hitter in the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) home game against the Cincinnati Reds held at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California on the 20th (Korean time) and hit a walk-off hit in extra innings.

In the bottom of the 10th inning, with the game tied 2-2, with two outs and runners on first and second base, Ohtani caught a low fastball 151 km/h thrown by Cincinnati closer Alexis Diaz.

The batted ball extended to the right side of right field, and the runner on second base easily hit home, ending the game as is.

It has been 3 years and 8 months since Ohtani hit a walk-off hit in MLB on September 5, 2020, during his time with the Los Angeles Angels. 파워볼사이트

This day’s performance was even more dramatic given that Ohtani’s batting average has been considered his only weakness. Since opening the season, Ohtani has had just one hit in 21 scoring appearances.

Bill Plunkett, a reporter for the local newspaper Orange County Register, said through “It’s being recorded,” he said.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts also praised Ohtani, saying, “Over the past four weeks, Ohtani has clearly set his own strike zone and has done a good job of selecting balls that are good to hit. He never misses a miss.

Ohtani ranks first in hits (66), batting average (0.353), first on-base percentage and slugging percentage (OPS) (1.081), and tied for third in home runs (13) in the entire major league. 온라인 슬롯
