Hamstring soreness note: ‘Three-run bang’ Ohtani goes deep in third

Los Angeles Dodgers’ Shohei Ohtani hit his first long ball in three games.

Ohtani went 1-for-4 from the No. 2 spot in the lineup against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday (June 26) at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA.

After going 0-for-5 against Cincinnati the day before, Ohtani bounced back with his second double of the season. However, his season batting average dropped from .340 to .338 and his on-base percentage dropped from .409 to .406. His on-base percentage increased slightly from 0.626 to 0.628.

The Dodgers, who had won three straight prior to this game, fell 1-3 to Cincinnati, their first four-game losing streak of the season. They fell to 33-21 on the season. Walker Buehler, who started against Hunter Greene, suffered his second loss of the season after allowing three runs on six hits (two homers) and one walk while striking out four in 5⅔ innings.

The visiting Dodgers lineup was Mookie Betts (shortstop)-Otani (designated hitter)-Freddie Freeman (first base)-Will Smith (catcher)-Teoscar Hernandez (left field)-Gavin Lux (second base)-Jason Heyward (right field)-Kike Hernandez (third base)-Chris Taylor (center field).

Cincinnati’s lineup was Jacob Hurtubiz (left field), Eli de la Cruz (shortstop), Spencer Steer (first base), Jake Freeley (right field), Tyler Stephenson (catcher), Mike Ford (designated hitter), Jonathan India (second base), Will Benson (center field), and Santiago Espinal (third base).

Ohtani struggled a bit early in the game against Cincinnati starter Green. In the top of the first inning, Ohtani drew a leadoff walk, fouled off two pitches, and was hit by a three-pitch splitter for a wild pitch.

Ohtani struck out again in his second at-bat. On a two-strike count, he walked Greene on pitches three and four, but swung wildly at a five-pitch splitter and missed.

Ohtani singled three at-bats later. In the top of the sixth, he pulled a three-pitch splitter from Greene for a long ball that sailed over the first baseman. After 카지노 stealing first and second, Ohtani slid into third to complete the triple. However, as if he was feeling unwell, he ran the bases at a slightly slower pace than usual.

Ohtani continued to play without a replacement, but he struck out with two outs in the top of the eighth. Facing left-hander Sam Moll, Ohtani drew a one-pitch foul, a two-pitch walk, and a three-pitch pitch before swinging wildly at a four-pitch sweeper. In the end, Ohtani had to settle for one hit.

As it turns out, Ohtani has been playing through pain lately. He was hit in the left thigh by a pitch in the bottom of the first inning of a home game against Cincinnati on Sept. 17, after being hit by a pitch from the opposing starter, and the pain had been bothering him for more than a week.

After the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts revealed the news of Ohtani’s hamstring soreness to the local media. “I told him to be smart with his hamstring injury,” Roberts said. It’s up to him to manage his hamstring injury,” Roberts said, adding, ”He felt better today than the day before. I hope it doesn’t get worse,” Roberts said.

Ohtani wasn’t the only one who struggled, his teammates did as well. After giving up a leadoff single to Steer in the first inning, the Dodgers got a run back in the top 바카라사이트 of the second when Hayward singled with the bases loaded to score Smith from third. But Benson’s solo shot in the bottom of the second and De La Cruz’s RBI single in the top of the sixth widened the gap to two runs.

After the first run in the top of the second inning, the Dodgers remained silent until the end of the game and had to accept the two-run loss, especially after the bottom of the order went a combined 0-for-10. “It’s not just the top of the order,” Roberts said. We had a couple of opportunities to score runs, and we didn’t capitalize,” Roberts said.

The Dodgers, who have lost five in a row, will start Yoshinobu Yamamoto on Sunday. Cincinnati’s starter will be Brent Suter.
