Japanese Shohei Ohtani continues to make history in the Big Top, each start is a record either from the bullpen or with the wood. In yesterday’s game he pitched into the fifth inning without allowing a run.
Shohei Ohtani helped the Angels win 4-2 over the Twins, but the most important thing was that the Japanese reached the number of 200 strikeouts in a season, something that he had not done even in Japan.
Shohei Ohtani Phenomenon
Despite starting the game a little tense yesterday, giving up six walks and one hit, Shohei Ohtani recovered and struck out eight batters to reach 203 strikeouts for the season.
“The Phenomenon” as many call him, also became the first player to achieve 200 strikeouts and add eight home runs in the same season in the entire history of the Major Leagues.
The fight for the MVP of the American League
Without a doubt, the fight with Aaron Judge for the American League MVP will continue on the table, both players have the necessary numbers to win the award. However, the Japanese is meritorious since he dominates two important aspects of the game, something that has not been seen for a long time.
With his victory yesterday, the multifaceted Japanese player adds a record of 14 wins and eight losses, waiting for what fate will bring at the end of the championship in terms of individual achievements.
