He barked when he took a strikeout from two deaths in the 7th inning, and gave out a guts pose.
■ Angels 5-0 Royals (Anaheim, Japan time 23rd)
Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani participated in the Royals match at the base on the 22nd (23rd Japan time) with “No. 2 pitcher and DH” at the same time. He threw the longest eight innings this season with two hits and no runs, and scored his sixth win (4 losses) with a good throw of 13 strikeouts. With a spirited pitch, when he took the 12th strikeout on the day from 2 deaths in the 7th inning, he raised his sword and made a guts pose. Fans are also crying out with joy, such as “the spirit of a man who carries all of the Angels on his back” and “the coolest”.
With a one-point lead, seven innings and two deaths, Otani took the 12th strikeout of the day from Hunter Dozier with a split of 89.6 miles (about 144 kilometers), barking and holding his fist in a guts pose. He returned to the third base bench. On the 21st (22nd of the same day), he made an outstanding performance with 2 home runs and 8 RBIs and a bat, but the game was defeated at the end of the extension and lost 2 consecutive times. In an unbeatable match, he showed a spirited pitch and became a consecutive defeat stopper.
MLB official and local broadcasting station “Barry Sports West” posted a video of the moment Otani barked on official Twitter. Fans commented, “His name remains in history,” “He is a god,” “He is the best in the world right now,” “I feel like it,” “It’s too cool every day,” and “It’s really cool.” He was intoxicated with the pitch.
