LA Angels’ Shohei Ohtani led the team’s come-from-behind victory by hitting a home run in his last at-bat. However, fans responded more to Ohtani’s sliding than home runs.

The Angels came from behind to win 메이저놀이터 13-12 in the 10th inning of extra time in a home game against the Houston Astros in the 2023 Major League Baseball at Anaheim Angels Stadium in California on the 16th (Korea Standard Time).

Otani, who had two hits against Houston on the 15th and had a good batting sense with six hits (one home run) and three RBIs in the past three games, recorded one hit (home run) and one RBI and one walk in five at-bats.

Ohtani, who started as the second designated hitter, struck out, grounded out, struck out and struck out until his fourth at-bat in the seventh inning. Then, he hit a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning when his team was being dragged 9-12.

After Otani’s solo home run, the Angels tied the game 12-12 dramatically and led the game to extra time.

In the 10th inning of extra time, Ohtani went out with an intentional 4th pitch with 1 out and 2nd base. Ohtani was out of the second base with Ward’s ground ball in front of the second baseman, but the Angels won a walk-off victory due to an opponent shortstop’s throwing error.

Regarding the process, Japanese media “The Answer” said, “The U.S. media released the video and praised it as a victory made by tenacity.”

The media also said, “The opposing shortstop, who was aiming for a double play, avoided Otani and threw a bad pitch. It can be seen as a dangerous play, but Otani headed to the base. It was a precious scene that ended,” he recalled.

We also looked at fans’ reactions. The media summarized reactions such as “Ottani’s sliding is effective,” “It seems to have created an opportunity for a bad pitch,” and “Ottani’s nice sliding that did not give up until the end.”
