be defeated by sluggishness

Masataka Yoshida (30), an outfielder for the Boston Red Sox, was completely defeated in a pitching match against Shohei Ohtani (29, LA Angels). On the 18th (hereafter Korean time), against the Los Angeles Angels at Fanway Park in Boston, he played as the 4th designated hitter and went 0-1 against “pitcher” Ohtani.

In the bottom of the first inning, trailing 1-4, he struck out on a swing in his first at-bat. Ball count 1B2S with no runners from 2nd company. Ohtani’s 158 km/h fastball, thrown high in the strike zone, cut through the air with Yoshida’s bat. Later, when the game was suspended for more than an hour due to rain, Ohtani, the pitcher, was replaced.메이저사이트

No hit in 1 at bat.

Yoshida and Ohtani, who were the main players of the Japanese national team, are the main players in winning the World Baseball Championship (WBC). Yoshida, who played as the 4th and 5th batter, posted ’13 RBIs’, the most in a single tournament, and Ohtani played a big role in pitching and was selected as the MVP of the tournament. A colleague from the Japanese national team had their first match in the major leagues, and Ohtani won a complete victory.

On this day, “batter” Ohtani hit two hits. The season batting average is .298 (17 hits in 57 at-bats) with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs.

Yoshida and Ohtani met in two games during Nippon Professional Baseball. Yoshida, who was a member of the Orix Buffaloes, recorded a grounder at second base and a grounder at shortstop in his first match against Ohtani, who was a member of the Nippon Ham Fighters in 2016.

all. In the second game in 2017, he had no hits in 3 at-bats, including double hits. He went hitless in six at-bats, including his first major league encounter.

Even after Ohtani came down the mound, Yoshida’s silence continued. He walked out on a walk with one out and second base in the 4th inning, then withdrew from first base in the 6th inning safely with a fly ball to right field and a grounder to second base in the 8th inning. He was out with a floating ball to third baseman in the 9th inning with 2nd out and 1st and 2nd bases.

5 at-bats, 4 at-bats, no hits, 1 walk.

His batting average for the season dropped to 10.86 (8 hits in 43 at-bats). It is hard to believe that Yoshida’s career batting average of 3.27 was recorded in Nippon Professional Baseball.

Yoshida returned on the 17th after taking 4 days off due to a hamstring injury. His sense of hitting, which had faltered even before his injury, is still at the bottom. In his last 3 games, he went 0-for-9 and in his last 7 games went 3-for-22 with a batting average of 1.3 and 6.

The fourth hitter in the opening game started off strong, but the major league wall is not easy.
