So far at the halfway point of the season, he has 8 wins and four losses. He’s given up an average of just 2.44 runs a game and he has struck out 111 batters.
“He continues when you think he’s done more than you expect, he does it again,” said Angel’s manager Ray Montgomery. “So tonight was just another example of it. From the first inning on, you could see him getting stronger.”
“He’s got a variety of pitches,” said Marlins manager Ray Mattingly about Ohtani after his team went down 5-2 against the Angels. “He can dial it up when he wants to. He never seems to get rattled.”
