Can Shohei Ohtani of the Los Angeles Angels, the ‘MLB icon’, achieve his first win of the season in his second start?
Ohtani will make his second start of the season against the Seattle Mariners on the 6th (Korean time). The starting pitcher for Seattle on this day is Chris Flexen, the “myth of KBO reverse export.” The match between the Angels and Seattle can be watched live on the SPOTV Prime channel and the sports OTT service SPOTV NOW.
Los Angeles Angels Shohei Ohtani’s first appearance of the season ended without a win or loss. Ohtani, who started the opening game for the second year in a row, played well against the Oakland Athletics lineup, recording two hits and 10 strikeouts in six innings. Unfortunately, however, with the silence of the team’s batting line, the team ended up losing two points to Oakland in the second half of the game. 카지노
Ohtani showed a strong side by recording 4 wins, undefeated, and an average ERA of 1.66 against Seattle in his major league career. He took the opportunity to post his first win of the season.
Seattle starter Flexen started in the bullpen, not as a starter. At that time, Flexen recorded 4 hits, 1 run and 1 strikeout in 4 innings against Cleveland. Flexen revealed his regret about his curveball last season.
According to MLB.com, Flexen’s curveball rate dropped from 15.3 percent in 21 seasons to 3.6 percent last year. Flexen said, “This season, too, we will focus on the slider,” adding, “However, we feel the need for a breaking ball that was not introduced until last year.”
From the starting match between Ohtani and Flexen, two pitchers aiming for their first win in 2023, to the major matches of the 2023 MLB regular season in which Korean leaguers such as Kim Ha-seong, Choi Ji-man, and Bae Ji-hwan participate, SPOTV ON, Spotv Prime (SPOTV It will be broadcast live on Prime) and SPOTV NOW.
