AngelsWin.com Today: Justin Verlander nearly makes Shohei Ohtani fall down with sick pitch

11 posts in this topic

Angels sensation Shohei Ohtani has been getting it done both on the mound and at the plate, but he appeared to meet his match during Wednesday’s game against the Astros.

Ohtani nearly went golfing attempting to hit a slider from Justin Verlander, and it almost caused him to hit the deck as a result.

He lost his balance offering at the pitch, but was able to remain upright — preventing embarrassment.

In Ohtani’s defense, Verlander has done that to many other players over the years.

Didn't Verlander suck last year before the trade?  Was he just being a dick?

He had a rough year until the last month he was in Detroit. In his last 7 starts: 

5-1 

48 ip

2.06 era 

0.854 whip

Weird thing is he gave up only 11 runs, but 8 HRs

Either Houston has the best ever pitching coach, or something suspicious is going on.   HTH does a pitching staff put up a 2.40 ERA for the first 7 weeks in today's MLB?   Especially playing half of its' games in offense happy Minute Maid Park?
