Ohtani showed his electric two-way performance.
Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels started the game against the Boston Red Sox as a starting pitcher, designated batting third at Fenway Park on May 5. It was his first time taking the mound at the historic stadium.
As a pitcher, Ohtani struck out 11 and gave up six hits and no walk in seven scoreless innings with 81 strikes of his 99 pitches, a career-high. Shohei showed spirited pitching with a courageous shout, having a strikeout.
The left-handed batter went 2-for-4 with an RBI. In the top of the fourth, he hit a single on a deep fly ball hitting a fence directly on center field. Shohei sharply singled on a line drive that intensely banged the Green Monster in the top of the eighth.
The Angels won the game handily, 8-0. The two-way star earned his third win of the season and became the first pitcher to hit in the top four batting order since Babe Ruth in 1919. (MLB No.174 KAISPO No.1182)
