MLB: Sayonara! Shohei Ohtani says goodbye to the ball with his HR 41

The stellar Shohei ohtani he turned the page and forgot very quickly his night of black afternoons on Wednesday; Thursday was the other side of the coin, since hit his home run 41 in the 2021 MLB season, however, his Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim they lost again to the Baltimore Orioles, now 13-1.

It seemed like a quiet afternoon for the Angels and the Halos as Ohtani pulled her out of Oriole Park At Camden Yards as the first hitter of the game against rookie left-hander Keegan Akin, who opened with an 83 mph slider that was called as strike. Here the video:

Ohtan, who served as DH, adjusted to the next delivery, an 82 mph curve, which he turned mercilessly and hit the ball high into right field, putting Joe Maddon’s Halos ahead 1-0.

However, no one thought that was all the Californians were going to do, who had only three hits in the game. The oriental Ohtani finished his day 2-1 with a run scored, another RBI, two walks, leaving his average at .269.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and within days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
