Choi Ji-man’s absence Pittsburgh lost to the Angels, Ohtani’s 36th shot

“Opening closure.” Choi Ji-man, who plays for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Major League Baseball (MLB), failed to play.

Pittsburgh played an away game between the 메이저놀이터 LA Angels and the MLB Interleague at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California, on the 24th (Korea Standard Time). Choi Ji-man hit a home run against Shohei Otani, who started against the Angels on the 22nd, but was excluded from the starting lineup for the next two days.

I didn’t get a chance to bat because of the platoon system (a strategy that sets the starting lineup according to the type of pitcher). Left-handed pitchers such as Reed Detmus on the 23rd and Tyler Anderson on the 24th were the starting pitchers for the Angels, and left-handed hitter Choi Ji-man watched his teammates’ games in the dugout.

Pittsburgh had a chase against the Angels on the same day, but lost 5-7. Otani started as the designated hitter and the second batter on the day and had a touch.

In his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning when the Angels were being dragged 0-1, he fired a solo home run (season 36) over the center fence against Pittsburgh starter Mitch Keller.

Ohtani maintained his sole lead in MLB home runs. Eduardo Escobar hit a timely hit in the bottom of the second inning to turn the game around 2-1, and the Angels took the lead by making big innings in the bottom of the fifth inning.

In the inning, leadoff hitter Andrew Velasquez and follow-up hitter Luis Renhipo hit consecutive batter home runs to run 4-1, and later added two points by tying Tyler Ward’s timely hit and Matt Thais’ sacrifice fly in the chance.

In the sixth inning, Renhipo hit consecutive at-bats home runs with a solo home run. Pittsburgh pulled back four runs in the top of the seventh, but that was the end of the chase

Pittsburgh will play three consecutive away games against Kim Ha-sung’s San Diego Padres from the 25th.

San Diego’s right-hander Darvish Yu was announced as the starting pitcher. Choi Ji-man is also more likely to start. In this case, Kim Ha-sung and Korean hitters will face off.
