How many home runs will Ohtani hit this season?
American major leaguer Los Angeles Angels Japanese superstar Ohtani Shohei is running out of control. He’s been perfect as a pitcher, but he’s even more fantastic at the plate. He increased his season home run count to 39. It is also possible to break the American League record of most home runs set by Aaron Judge (New York Yankees) last season with 62 home runs.안전놀이터
On the 29th (Korean time), Ohtani started as the designated hitter in the away game against the Toronto Blue Jays held at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Ohtani, who started the first game of the doubleheader against Toronto the day before and earned his first shutout in his debut, and hit a home run in consecutive hits in the second game of the doubleheader, once again proved why he is the best star.
Ohtani played a multi-hit game that day, including the first solo shot. Ohtani hit a solo home run against Toronto starter Gaussman in a situation where there was no runner in the first inning, 0-0. When Gaussman’s fastball was driven into the middle, he pulled it without missing it, leading to a home run with a distance of 121m.
The 39th gun of the season and a record of three home runs in a row. He hit home runs in the last two at-bats of the previous day, so the record for consecutive home runs continued.
Ohtani, who was struck out by Gaussman in the second at-bat in the third inning, succeeded in revenge again in the third at-bat in the sixth inning. In the 6th inning, when the score was 1-2, and there was no runner, he pushed Gaussman’s breaking ball and made it a left-handed hit.
Ohtani backed off with a grounder in the 8th inning. As the team lost 1-4, his home run was hoped for that day. The Angels lost to Ohtani’s performance and failed to challenge for a 5-game winning streak.
The Angels have played 104 games so far. There are 58 games left until the end of the season. Arithmetically, this is a pace that allows for 60.75 home runs. However, as seen in the home run record of three consecutive hits, Ohtani is capable of hitting the ball, so it seems likely that he will be able to conquer the 60 home run plateau. The American League record for home runs in one season was 62 set by Judge last year. It is by no means an impossible goal for Ohtani. Since he is a pitcher and hitter at the same time, it seems important to manage his stamina in the second half of the season. You should also watch out for injuries. Ohtani surprised many by hitting a home run in two consecutive hits the day before and grabbing his back, but it was not a major injury. On this day, before the last at-bat in the ninth inning, a pinch hitter came out due to a leg problem.
