The team’s disgraceful record continued in the Astros match on the 14th (15th Japan time) when Shohei Ohtani of the US Major League Baseball Angels participated in the second designated hitter (DH). The losing streak in the game that Otani did not pitch, which has continued since the 28th of last month, has increased to “11”. The poor batting angels with a batting average of less than 20% in July. Continuing from the previous day, he showed a bunt from the first half of the game and aimed for a goal regardless of his pretense, but ended up with 2 points and was shaken off by the top team in the 10th inning.

The day before Otani made a big move to throw, he actually took the first goal with a trick that he rarely showed. 8th Marsh bunts at 2nd, 1st and 3rd base. The pitcher threw it to a home that wasn’t in time, and the record was a hit, but it was a squeeze play that was rarely seen in the major leagues.
Marsh sent a sacrifice bunt on the second base without death four times on this day as well. It led to a score with a pass ball at Otani’s turn at bat.
The Angels showed their obsession with scoring, but that’s it. He advanced the runner to the scoring position three times after five times, including the ten times of the tie-break system, but he could not score. After all, in this game, when the runner was placed in the scoring position, the Angels batter had no hits in 9 at bats. The two points he stole were due to extruded walks and a passed ball, and the left on base was 14 on base.
According to the Major League Baseball official website, the acting coach Nevin said, “I had good batting. I made many chances to score, but I didn’t have one more.”
