Los Angeles Angels fail to snap losing streak. Shohei Ohtani couldn’t continue his recent hot hitting.
The Angels dropped a 1-3 home game to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday (Feb. 2) at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
The Angels have not won since a 4-2 victory on March 28, when Ohtani started and pitched 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball to earn the win. They have lost four straight since a 5-11 loss to the Chicago White Sox on March 29.
Even Ohtani, who has been hitting well of late, has been silent. After hitting five home runs in his previous five games, and leading the league in home runs in his last two games, Ohtani went 0-for-4 on the day.
His season batting average dropped slightly to 3.6 from 3.1.
Ohtani, who started in the No. 3 spot in the lineup, took aim at a five-pitch, 96.2-mph fastball from Arizona starter Ryne Nelson in his first at-bat before retiring on a fly ball to center field.
In the fourth, he struck out swinging with the bases loaded with one out.토스카지노
The Angels took the lead for good when Rendon, who came to the plate after Ohtani struck out, blasted a solo shot to left. But the game turned in the top of the sixth. Bachman, who pitched the sixth after Anderson, gave up an infield single to Fletcher with runners on first and third to tie the game.
After allowing the tying run to score, Ohtani struck out swinging in his third at-bat of the sixth. The Angels fell behind 1-3 in the top of the seventh when Devensky allowed another run to score.
After leading off the bottom of the ninth, Ohtani was retired on a line drive down the first base line, putting runners on first and second with one out, but Ren Pro struck out swinging to end the game.
