Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) struck out 12 strikeouts and did an overwhelming pitch as a pitcher for the first time in a long time. However, Ohtani is not the leader in the strikeout title, which symbolizes pitchers’ ability.바카라

On the 22nd (hereinafter Korean time), Ohtani gave up 5 hits (1 home run), 12 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 run in 7 innings in an away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2023 Major League Baseball held at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California, USA. He became a losing pitcher because he did not receive any support from the other line, but it is the most dominant record in recent years.

Ohtani had an increase in runs this season as the proportion of home runs by sweepers increased. Recently, he tried adjusting the weight of the cutter by increasing it, and it worked that day. As a result, he struck out 12 on the day. His 117 strikeouts for the season is second in the American League.

The pitcher who strikes out more than Ohtani in the American League this season is Kevin Gaussman (32, Toronto Blue Jays). Gaussman won 7 wins (3 losses, ERA of 3.10) of the season with 8 hits, 6 strikeouts, 2 walks and 3 runs in 6 innings against the Miami Marlins held at Londipo Park in Miami, Florida.

The combination of a 95-96 mph four-seam fastball and a splitter is by far the greatest weapon. He is a pitcher with good conditions for striking out. In 16 games he played this season, he struck out 10 or more only six times. As a result, he runs first with 127 strikeouts, catching 10 more than Ohtani.

Gaussman finished 4th with 227 strikeouts in 2021 while he was with the San Francisco Giants, and 5th in the American League with 205 strikeouts in 2022. He is challenging his first strikeout title this year. He struck out 127 strikeouts in 98⅔ innings, so a career high is likely beyond 2021.

Gaussman is spending the second season of a five-year, $10 million (approximately 142.5 billion won) contract. He did not follow his winning streak until May, but in June he had already won 4 out of 5 games. He tied for seventh in most wins in the American League with teammates Jose Berrios and Chris Bassitt. The most innings is 4th. His batting average (0.237, 18th) and WHIP (1.16, 16th) are relatively uncompetitive, but in the end, it should be seen that his strikeout ability covers it.

Can Ryu Hyun-jin, who is about to start a minor league rehabilitation, play the role of a Toronto one-two punch in the second half with Gaussman? This is the scenario that Korean fans want the most. Gaussman needs to maintain his stamina in the second half so Toronto can lay the groundwork for a great counterattack.
