Shohei Ohtani was born against the Red Sox on Fenway

He was sure to be smart in “The Sky” when Roy Hobbs used the ball in time to hit the ball, hitting him. A good time in a beautiful story.

Shohei Ohtani made the impression seem real.

With the base loaded in the eighth inning of its Angels’ game in Boston on Thursday, it smacked the ball off of Fenway Park’s scoreboard, dislodging one of the numbers there.


Scores of 17 are reported to indicate current Angels pitcher, Ohtani. When he crashed the board with force, another number was in place, but 17, as if by accident, fell. Ohtani made an impact on Fenway Park that almost crossed into the cinematic.

Fast-paced play by athlete Alex Verdugo, along with the bottom bones, restricts the eye-opening smash to one another.

(Ohtani had another long difference in the game when his deep ball disappeared in the sun and fell on strike. The runner-up was initially delayed to see if he could be caught. )

Ohtani’s batting line ended 2 to 4 with a run and RBI in an 8-0 win. And yes, as the scores show, he is also a beginner pitcher and is a little more than helpful in that role. In his first start on Fenway, he scored six hits and had no runs in seven innings with 11 strikeouts and no runs.

“I’m looking forward to getting out of here,” he told reporters through the interpreter, “For the Red Sox that could be foreboding.”

Ohtani, who won the American League’s Most Value Player Award last year thanks to his brilliant performances, went off to a slow start in season 26 for the first time. He is hitting .240 with four home runs (he has 46 in the past). On the mound he was even stronger, with a 3-2 record that shortened his 3.08 ERA and the fact that he allowed only 1.03 walks and hits a pitched inning.

A few early humdrum stats have not taken away from the wow thing. Since he has been doing it for a year, fans will still be able to sometimes remind themselves of the incredible truth: Shohei Ohtani is a starter pitcher who bats himself out and if his team is relegated. choose the day it does not leave.

That gave him a string of superlatives that often include the line “first since Babe Ruth.” (And it turns out that Ruth did a lot of his pitching at Fenway, when he was a member of the Red Sox.)

“I hope we do not start eating that like his old hat,” Angels manager Joe Maddon said after the game. “It was just weird. It is otherworldly at this stage; of the game, which is I think the most difficult game. “

And Angels fans will focus on some other numbers: Despite the recognition of the best baseball player in the world, Mike Trout, the team has not made the playoffs since 2014. But with Second best record in American League, team. seems set to break the slide.

Leave an open question: What will Ohtani do in the game?

Only for use, Roy Hobbs – who made the film preview with his ability to counter Ruth – completed his memorable season by hitting the light stadium with escape at home. It almost seems to be possible.
