Angelsi Ohtani is the 13 best in the career

ANAHEIM, California – Shohei Ohtani follows a strict routine in almost all areas of his life. When his final start of the hill was 12 minutes late due to the Los Angeles Angels 2002 World Cup Prelude Ceremony, his careful preparation struck before he even threw.

However, the slightly rough start led to another incredible night in a row for the two-way superstar.

Ohtani achieved a career-top 13 of two hits in eight dominant rounds, and the American League MVP also won the Los Angeles 5: 0 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday.

After giving up two singles to start the delayed first round, Ohtani (6-4) interrupted 16 consecutive Royals and 23 of the last 24 bats he faced. Although he made the longest start of his high league career, he promised to cross only one main runner in his last seven rounds – a walk that was quickly erased by a double.

“I think the biggest thing was setting it to zero in the first shift after the first two hits were handed over,” Ohtani said through his interpreter. “I was able to do it and it set the tone for the game. I wanted to go as long as I could, but I didn’t think about the number of squares at the beginning of the game.”

Against the backdrop of a rare southern California thunderstorm that lit up the sky far beyond the Big A midfield, Ohtani also took one and two walks in his latest electrifying two-way show.

One night after Ohtani hit two three-run home teams and drove a career-leading eight-run extra-inning loss, he set a personal record by hitting Emmanuel Rivera on his 108th and final field.

“He just put us on,” said Phil Nevin, Angels’ interim manager. “I thought I could go to the eighth, and he was steadfast.” No. That’s mine. I’ll stay. “… What a day. What a performance from him.”

David MacKinnon got his first Premier League hit with an RBI single in the seventh for Angels, who avoided sweeping the series with his fourth win of six games. Luis Rengifo got his RBI double in the seventh, before beating MacKinnon to the right of the single, who won the first RBI of his career two rounds earlier.

After scoring 18 races in the previous two games at Angel’s Stadium, the Royals were eliminated for the second time in four days and for the 10th time this season. Kansas City has still won five out of seven.

“It was an exhibition,” said Kings Manager Mike Matheny. “It’s a very unique repertoire of squares. I don’t think you’ll find as many guys with as many weapons as we saw today. He threw three different sliders, plus a cutter and a curve. He started to go, then the punches really started. happen and he has a tank of 100 (miles per hour) he almost never showed … It’s going to be a hard day.

Ohtani has been unsurpassed lately, allowing only one run in his last 20 shifts in three starts. In his last home start two weeks ago, he scored seven innings in a single shot and won 14 games in the Angel franchise record.

Whit Merrifield and Andrew Benintendi played Ohtan alone in the first two shots of the royal squad, but then shot each winger until Merrifield scored one in the sixth game – and Benintendi quickly started the double.

Ohtan’s fast ball crossed the start twice in the second half of 99 miles per hour, while he was puzzled by Kansas City, receiving 34 combined strokes in the event of a hit and miss.

Daniel Lynch (3-7) wasn’t as effective for the Royals early on, but the left wing ingeniously closed the Angels until they loaded fifth on two walks and an indoor single. Lynch, who left after MacKinnon’s casualty flight, gave up three hits and five walks on top of 104 career quarters.

Mike Trout was allowed to take it quickly by the referee, much to the dismay of the goalkeeper who wasn’t prepared. But MacKinnon quit the team as an unlikely clean-up striker, getting his first Premier League hit after being called to his MLB debut last weekend.

MacKinnon was pleased with the breakthrough on his way out of the way.

“I got to play on the field behind Shohei and see how good he is,” MacKinnon said. “It’s crazy to be here.”


Royal Teams: C Salvador Perez sat outside after injuring his left thumb on Tuesday night, but Matheny says the team is still deciding the severity of the injury after an MRI scan.

Angels: RHP Jimmy Herget got 15 days on the injured list with a right shoulder shock. Right-handed Elvis Peguero and Oliver Ortega rose from Triple-A Salt Lake, while inconsistent newcomer Reid Detmers dropped just six starts after an elusive throw.


Royal Games: Zack Greinke is expected to be off the list on Friday to start as Kansas City opens a three-game weekend series at home against Oakland. Greinke (0-4, 5.05 ERA) went to the IL three weeks ago with an outstretched arm.

Angels: Los Angeles will open a three-game weekend series against Seattle on Friday night after a day off. Neither team approved the starter.
