In the 7th inning, with a lead of 4-3, Mike Trout, a runner on first base, moved to second base due to a foil at first base, creating a scoring opportunity. Ohtani hit the slider on the 3rd pitch against Cionel Perez in 1B-1S, but was unable to bring the runner home as it was just a fly ball to the center fielder.

Ohtani’s true value came in the last at-bat. In the 8th inning, the score was 5-5, with 2 outs and bases loaded. Ohtani hit a strong ground ball toward the first baseman and succeeded in hitting the infield with an RBI turnaround. First baseman Ryan Mountcastle threw his body to catch the ball and tried to throw it toward the pitcher who was on first base cover, but Ohtani had already stepped on first base. I couldn’t throw the ball because of Ohtani’s speed. It was the moment when Ohtani hit the final blow.
