Temporary win double, tie triple, no good push No. 25 solo
■ Angels 6-4 Raise (28th Japan time, St. Petersburg)
Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani started on the 27th (28th Japan time) with “No. 2 Designated Hitter” in the raise match against the enemy territory. In the 6th inning, he hit a double in a timely manner, and in the 7th inning, he tripled in a tie. In the 9th inning, he released No. 25 solo, which was the most in both leagues in the home run battle. Batting average .277 with 3 hits and 3 RBIs in 4 at bats. The defeated Rays coach Kevin Cash said, “I’m a really good player. I’m a very good player.”
It was just a rampage. 1-point lead, 9th inning, 2 deaths, 5th right arm, Fairbanks, No. 25 solo to the left middle. He has 10 home runs a month, which is the highest number since June 2019. One behind Blue Jays Guerrero Jr. in the home run battle. It was a useless bullet that silenced the raise aimed at the sweep.
In the 6th inning, he made a timely double hit over the right from his left arm, Yarbro, and hit a triple in the 7th inning with a 1-point difference. In the 4th inning, he decided to steal two, and was a big success with three hits, three RBIs and one stolen base. Manager Cash said, “I have a lot of ways to beat my opponent. Even pitchers against the left are tenacious. Like today’s home runs, I’m hitting more and more in the opposite direction.”
