“Sloppy extra-inning loss squanders strong Ohtani outing” MLB.com

Los Angeles Angels “two-hit wonder” Shohei Ohtani failed to add to his wins column. His strong outing was wasted in an extra-inning loss.

Ohtani took the mound for the Angels’ 2023 Major League Baseball home game against the Miami Marlins at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, U.S., on Monday (28 June), allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits with 10 strikeouts and three walks in six innings, but was unable to secure the win.

The team lost 5-8 in 10 extra innings. After Ohtani left the mound, Chase Silseth gave up a two-run homer to Jorge Soler in the seventh inning, ending Ohtani’s chance for the win.

The Angels tied the game again in the bottom of the eighth on a solo home run by Gio Ursella, but a costly error sent the game into extra innings.먹튀검증

The extra inning began with the bases loaded. Jamie Varia, the team’s fifth pitcher on the mound, walked Yuli Gurriel with one out. He then faced Garrett Cooper.

Barria’s first pitch was a line drive to left field, which left fielder Mikey Moniak tracked well and made an easy catch, but Moniak dropped the ball. The next moment, Luis Arajuez, the second baseman, crossed home plate.

The balance was off. The momentum shifted to Miami. Baria gave up three more runs. The Angels led until the sixth inning, when Ohtani took over. Silses gave up the game-winning run and then made a costly error in extra innings to ruin Ohtani’s performance.
