[Sports Center/Comprehensive Report] Shohei Otani showed off his two-handed nature in the opening game of the classic yesterday, leading the Japanese team to an 8-1 victory over China to get off to a good start.

Angels teammate and Team USA captain Mike Trout was not surprised.

Japan faced China in the first game of the classic game yesterday at the Tokyo Dome Stadium. Shohei Otani hit two shots out of the sheath and served as the starting pitcher and designated hitter for the third bat. The first 3 innings gave China 9 ups and 9 downs, and it was not until the 4th inning that he was caught by Yang Jin. With hits, Ohtani scored 5K with 49 balls in 4 innings, hit 1 hit and scored no points. The fastest ball speed reached 161 kilometers.

Regarding Otani's active performance in the Classic, Triott admitted that he did not watch the game, because the Sino-Japanese war was at 3:00 a.m. local time in the United States, and he saw the game video this morning, so he was not too surprised by Otani's performance, " I’m very happy that Otani played well, it’s the same as what he thought, the feeling of writing his own script, the Japanese team is a great team, let’s wait and see what happens in the future.”

The MLB official website recently listed 12 dream matchups. The Angels teammate Trout and Shohei Otani will compete in the same field. This is the most anticipated matchup this year.
