Shohei Ohtani (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) went 3-for-4 with a home run, one RBI, and one run scored while batting second in the lineup against the Texas Rangers in the 2023 Major League Baseball World Series on Sunday at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Ohtani’s performance led the Angels to a 2-0 victory.

Ohtani was on fire from his first at-bat. With the bases loaded in the top of the first inning, he hit a 95.7 mph (approx. 154 km/h) fastball from John Gray over the center field fence. Gray’s pitch was well up in the strike zone, but he crushed it for a home run. It was a big home run with a bat speed of 109.1 mph (175 km/h) and a distance of 437 feet (133 meters).

Even Gray, who hit the home run, recognized Ohtani’s home run. ”I thought that pitch to him was right where I wanted it,” Gray said after the game. But he’s a different kind of player,” Gray said after the game.

Ohtani added hits in his second and fourth at-bats. Both hits were infield singles that came after a sprint. He led off the third inning by driving a fastball well outside the strike zone for an infield single. Third baseman Ezequiel Duran caught the ball and threw it out, but Ohtani took first base.

In his fourth at-bat of the eighth inning, he took a 103.1 mph (about 165 km/h) sinker from Aroldis Chapman. It was a hard-hit pitch. But Ohtani sprinted and shortstop Corey Seager made the catch and throw, but it was too late to catch him.

Angels manager Phil Nevin praised Ohtani’s infield hit, saying, “He’s a great player. When the leader of the team makes a play like that, it brings a different energy to the dugout. It means as much as scoring a run with a home run.”

“Ohtani was delayed due to fatigue in his right arm, but it didn’t affect his hitting and running,” said Japanese media outlet Daily Sports, adding, “Not giving up is a way of life for him.”
