Anaheim – Shoaib Othani made history again on Wednesday, beating the record for most runs scored by a Japanese player in a single season, beating Hideki Matsui with his 32nd win of the year.
According to the State Coast, Ohani hit a switch from Eduardo Rodriguez of Venezuela and hit a victory that traveled 433 feet. The link went at 114.5 mph.
“Thirty-two home runs a year is part of the journey for a hitter like Shoi,” Matsui said in a statement. “I was once considered a power hitter in the Majors, but I think he really is. In addition, he’s a great pitcher. He surpasses what is considered a regular Major League Baseball player. There is no one else like him. As a baseball fan, I can not wait to see what he does next. “
Incredibly, Othani set the mark in his 81st game, while Matsui had to play in all 162 Yankees in 2004 to hit 31 homers. Othani’s 32nd home run came after a solid 7.0 on Tuesday.
