Shohei Ohtani of the Major League Baseball Angels made a full appearance as a designated hitter in the Astros game on the 19th, the day before the starting pitcher, but no hits were made and the consecutive game hits stopped at "8".

Otani started as the first designated hitter in the Astros match in his opponent's hometown of Houston, Texas.

The opponent's starting pitcher was Valdes, a left-handed pitcher who played in the opening round with no hits in three at bats.

The second at bat in the third inning was a walk, and the third at bat in the fifth inning hit a sharp ball on the first base line, but it became a first ground ball, and pitcher Valdes did not hit on that day either.

The 4th at bat in the 6th inning, which was replaced by the pitcher, was a strikeout that was overlooked by the changing ball on the out course, and the 5th at bat in the 8th inning was the second ground ball.

The Angels scored 7 points with 13 hits and won 7-2, but Otani was the starting player, and he couldn't hit just one person. It stopped at "8".

Otani is scheduled to start as a pitcher in the Astros game on the 20th.
