‘Ohtani Killer’ Kiwoom Hurado Against the Best Player

‘Ohtani Killer’ Kiwoom Hurado “Against the Best Player…Inspiring”

MLB’s career hitting percentage against Ohtani is 0.182… Consecutive missed swings and strikeouts in the Seoul Series

Kiwoom Heroes’ foreign pitcher Ariel Jurado, who struck out ‘superstar’ Shohei Ohtani (Los Angeles Dodgers) twice, said, “It is encouraging just to face the best player again.”

In the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) Seoul Series practice game against the Dodgers held at Gocheok Dome in Seoul on the 17th, Hurado struck out two against Ohtani, who started as the opposing team’s number two designated hitter. 카지노사이트

In his first match with Ohtani in the 1st inning, he threw a sinking fastball that fell towards his body and struck out a missed swing, and in the second match in the 2nd inning when he was down 0-2, he threw a high fastball with a ball count of 3 balls and 1 strike and caused a missed swing.

Ohtani swung with all his might and his helmet came off.

Jurado was the losing pitcher on this day with 5 hits (1 home run), 4 walks, 3 strikeouts, and 4 runs in 4 innings, but he received a lot of attention just for setting Ohtani back by striking out two missed swings.

In fact, it is not the first time that Furado has met Ohtani.

He actually showed a strong performance against Ohtani on the American stage.

Hurado, who played for the Texas Rangers and New York Mets from 2018 to 2020, faced Ohtani 22 times in his MLB career and achieved a hitting percentage of 0.182, allowing 4 hits, no walks, and 6 strikeouts.

When asked, “Is there a difference between the past Otani and the current Otani?” Furado said, “I don’t think there has been much difference.

Ohtani is the best player I know and he shows improvement every year.”

He also added, “I haven’t played in the big leagues for the past 3-4 years, but it was an honor to play with MLB players such as Ohtani.”

This day’s game seemed to be a motivation for Jurado to re-enter the big leagues.

He said, “Many MLB scouts must have seen today’s game,” and “I think all of our players, including me, showed their capabilities to scouts around the world.”
