14 innings to first regular major league pitching inning
■ Twins – Angels (24th Japan Time, Minnesota)
On the 23rd (Japan time on the 24th, the game starts at 9:10 a.m.), Angels pitcher Shohei Otani will participate in the game against the Twins along with “No. 3, pitcher and DH”. Expectations are high for his 14th win and 35th home run.
In the game against the Mariners at home on 17 (18) of the previous pitch, he scored 8 strikeouts in the 7th inning, with 3 hits and no runs. He earned his 13th win with a throw that didn’t feel the influence of right middle finger blisters. It will be pitched with 5 days remaining.
The pitch count before the game was 148. There are 14 innings left before the first major league pitching innings of the season (162). He is also four to reach 200 strikeouts for the season. If he reaches 200K, he will be the fourth Japanese thrower after Hideo Nomo (4 degrees), Daisuke Matsuzaka (1 degree) and Yu Darvish (4 degrees).
