Shohei Ohtani, who was solo in the American professional baseball major league home run competition, met a strong competitor.안전놀이터
The main character is Atlanta’s starting first baseman Matt Olsen.
Olsen, who had hit 17 home runs until last May, swept 11 home runs in June and 8 in July, and continued his hot hitting feeling this month.
On the 11th (Korean time), he hit his 40th home run of the season in an away game against Pittsburgh held at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, and finally tied for first place with Ohtani in the MLB home run rankings.
The two players’ home run production trend is mixed.
Ohtani, who had hit 39 home runs until last month, only added one home run in nine games this month.
He was silent for six games after hitting his 40th home run against Seattle in the last four.
Olsen, on the other hand, has hit four homers in nine games this month.
Based on the current trend and the number of games remaining, the American media predicts that Olsen’s chances of becoming the MLB home run king are higher than Ohtani’s.
MLB.com predicted that “Olson has hit 22 home runs in the last 45 games,” and “if he continues the current trend, he will be able to step on the 60 home run mark.”
Currently, Ohtani’s team, the Los Angeles Angels, have 46 games left and Atlanta has 49 games left.
Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Roger Maris, Babe Ruth, and Aaron Judge are the only MLB players to hit 60 or more home runs in a single season.
Babe Ruth, Roger Maris and Aaron Judge are just three players who have hit the 60 home run mark without resorting to drugs.
