LA Dodgers’ Shohei Ohtani hit a home run in two consecutive games. Although the team lost, even the opposing team’s fans showed surprising strength.

Ohtani started as the second designated hitter in an away game against the Chicago Cubs of the 2024 Major League Baseball at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois on the 6th (Korea time) and recorded two hits (one home run) and two RBIs and two runs from five times at bat. His batting average for this season has risen from .27 to .286.

Ohtani’s performance was highlighted as his team lost 7-9. After beating the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 at Dodger Stadium, their home stadium, on Sunday, the Dodgers swept all three consecutive games against the San Francisco Giants and won for four consecutive games. However, the team failed to continue its winning streak due to its first-day loss in an away game.

Ohtani, who hit his first home run of the season in nine games against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium on the 4th, hit two consecutive games.

The Dodgers allowed the first run. After Betts struck out swinging at a strikeout in the top of the first inning, Ohtani hit a sinker of 88.2 miles per hour on the third pitch of Cubs starter Kyle Hendrix to make a double to the left field.

Freeman then drew a walk and Smith hit a left-handed hit, giving the Dodgers a chance to load the bases. Muncy struck out swinging, but Hernandez hit a timely two-run double.

The Dodgers came from behind by giving up five runs in the bottom of the second inning. Starter Bo Miller was sluggish.

Ohtani hit a home run in the fifth inning when he grounded out to the first base as the leadoff hitter in the top of the third inning. Betts, the leadoff hitter, hit a left-center hit, and Ohtani hit a changeup of 79.4 mph with the first pitch of the game, hitting a two-run homer over the right fence.

The Dodgers chased with 5-6, one point difference, as Freeman walked and Smith hit a timely double on the left-field line.

While hitting a home run, Ohtani lost his posture due to Hendrix’s changeup. At the moment of impact, he swung only with his right hand. Nevertheless, the ball went over the right fence.

“Otani had two hits and two RBIs, including his second home run of the season, but his team suffered a come-from-behind defeat,” Japanese media Sponichi Annex said. “Otani’s body reacted to Hendrix’s changeup that fell to the lower center. He missed the timing and hit the bat with one right hand at the end.” 업소알바

“Cubs right fielder Seiya Suzuki had no choice but to watch. With just one right hand, he boasted overwhelming power with 169.3 kilometers of batting speed and 115.5 meters of flying distance. All spectators who booed at the first batter’s box stood up and cheered,” the media said.
