Ohtani grants young Royals fan's wish by gifting one of his bats
HIs first week in the city of Angels will be a memorable one, not only for Ohtani but for any general baseball fan. His image graces the cover of Number Magazine, Japan's version of Sports Illustrated, and just about every sports newspaper in the country. Gamblers can also wager on the game's spread with the most recent runline odds coming in at Angels -1.5 runs (+115) and Royals 1.5 runs (-135). By the time they reach college or the minors however, hitting becomes an afterthought. They are taught to focus on pitching, and only pitching.
It was Ian Kinsler's game-opening home run that got Kennedy's day off to a poor start, culminating in the right-hander's first loss of the season. "After today, I'll have a lot better answers for you as far as how it feels and maybe the timetable upon the return".
The two-way star started the game as the designated hitter. He wasted absolutely no time erasing any doubters off the face of the planet. "He really wanted that bat, so I gave it to him".
In just 19 at bats this season, Ohtani is hitting.368 at the plate with three home runs and seven runs batted in. What the hell are we supposed to do with that? The over has hit in one of those games, as opposed to three that've cashed the under. There was no such thing as a night game, teams traveled by train, and a hot dog was 10 cents at Wrigley.
As a pitcher, Ohtani is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA and 18 strikeouts over 13 innings. But a monster at both? Heaney recorded 27 strikeouts over 21 innings past year (five starts) but finished the season 1-2 overall with a 7.06 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. "You kind of knew that".
Angels hitters have slashed.290/.350/.481 on their way to 6.6 runs scored per game this season, including 7.1 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 7.8 per game over the team's last five contests (5-0 SU).
Author Robert Whiting, who has written several books on Japanese baseball, including "The Meaning of Ichiro", says Ohtani has the potential to surpass the popularity of Nomo, Suzuki and Hideki Matsui.
Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney gets the ball Friday night in Kansas City, his first start of the year after beginning the season on the disabled list with elbow inflammation. "He pitches and hits".
The second baseman sent Washington starter Gio Gonzalez's third pitch into the Colorado bullpen in left. Maybe he was developed in a lab and is capable of pitching and hitting on the major league level. It is a concession that not even the biggest American superstars have to make.
In the Thursday game, the Angels will be going with Nick Tropenao for the start.
