This season, with 8 wins and 2 losses in 10 games, the team’s win rate reaches a whopping 80%. In the 73 games Ohtani took the mound, the Angels recorded 44 wins and 29 losses with a winning percentage of 0.603. Ohtani’s win rate in games is the highest this season.
In the home game against the Minnesota Twins held at Angel Stadium on the 22nd (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani pitched a good pitch, allowing 1 run with 2 hits, 3 walks and 9 strikeouts in 6 innings. Ohtani went down in a 1-1 tie and had nothing to do with the win or loss, but the team won 4-2.
This is because Ohtani led the mound reliably until the middle of the game. The Angels, who decorated their three-game home game against Minnesota this time with a winning series of 2 wins and 1 loss, maintained a record of 25 wins and 23 losses and maintained 3rd place in the AL West Division.
The Angels, who had been 1-1 at the end of the 7th inning, took a 3-1 lead with Mickey Moniak’s double to the middle right base from second and third base, then Minnesota caught up with Alex Kirilov’s solo home run in the top of the 8th inning. Luther Matt Theith’s double doubled it back to 2 runs.
It is the first time Ohtani pitched with less than one run in five games since the game against the Kansas City Royals on the 22nd of last month (7 scoreless innings). In 4 games until the previous appearance, he gave up 18 hits and 7 walks in 25 innings and allowed 17 runs, continuing his worst hunting streak. During this period, he hit as many as 8 home runs. On this day, he regained his early season force against Minnesota.

Ohtani, who maintained 5 wins and 1 loss, lowered his ERA from 3.23 to 3.05 and increased his strikeout rate to 80. Across both leagues, he ranked first in batting average (0.142), fourth in WHIP (0.90), third in strikeouts and 25th in earned run average.
He threw 26 out of 99 pitches and averaged 97.1 mph with a high speed of 99.2 mph. He used 27 sweepers, 19 cutters, 16 splitters and 11 sinkers.
However, Ohtani’s pitching was a bit jagged that day as well. Balls that deviated greatly from the strike zone were often noticeable, and one dune ball and one wild pitch came out. 8 balls and 9 shots are the most in both leagues.
At the beginning of the 3rd inning, when the score was 0-0, Ohtani walked Joey Gallo after two kills, and then threw an 83-mile sweeper to the outside strike zone to Carlos Correa, but was hit by a double that went into the middle of the right and allowed a run. In the end, the walk became the cause of the loss on this day as well.
However, following the 4th inning and the 5th induction of double batting, he struck out all three batters in the 6th inning. Ohtani went 3 at-bats with 1 hit and 1 walk.
It wasn’t his fault that the Angels suffered two losses in Ohtani’s appearances. In the opening game, despite Ohtani’s 6 innings, 2 hits, 10 strikeouts and no runs against the Oakland Athletics, the Angels lost 1-2, and on the 10th, against the Houston Astros, they had 7 innings, 6 hits and 3 runs, but the team They suffered a 1-3 loss due to sluggish batting.
