Doosan Rojas responded with an exciting solo arch

 “It’s getting better.”

The eyes of the ‘national hitter’ were accurate. Jose Rojas, a foreign hitter from Doosan, fired a flare to break out of the slump with an exciting shot.

In the regular season home game against KT held at Jamsil Stadium on the 21st, after two outs in the bottom of the 5th inning with a 5-1 lead, Lohas kicked up a 143km/h high ball thrown by the opponent’s starting exclusion and drew an arch with a distance of 115m. He accurately returned a high fastball from a ball count of 1-1. The timing was perfect enough to intuit that it was a home run the moment it hit, and as expected when recruiting him, he fired a long hit.

Coach Lee said ahead of the game that day, “Lohas’s (feeling of hitting) must live. The timing is a bit off, and he gets a lot of hands on bad balls, but he thinks he’ll definitely get better. He is actually getting better,” he said, revealing his anticipation. Lohas was replaced with Shin Seong-hyun and pinch hitter at the decisive moment in the match against Hanwha in Daejeon on the 19th. It was not an easy choice to replace a foreign hitter, but coach Lee said, “I thought that left-handed pitchers Kim Beom-soo and Rojas, who throw a fast ball, had a low probability (to hit well). Anyway, as a result (the game at the time) we lost, so it is the manager’s responsibility.”토토사이트

He said, “If it is in normal condition, I will not replace Lohas.” Since it is my first time playing in the KBO league, I need to adapt. There are ups and downs as you go through the season, but at the time, Rojas’ hitting balance wasn’t very good.” He said, “Looking at the training today (21st), it seems to be getting better. It has to get better,” he stressed.

In the first at-bat in the bottom of the second inning, he withdrew with a fly to right field, but the speed at which he was hit by the bat was not bad. A swing that gave me hope that if I only raised my bat speed, I could do my part. After one out in the fourth inning, he had a lucky on-base run. He made a mediocre center fielder fly, but KT rookie outfielder Jung Joon-young made the mistake of dropping the ball. Jung Joon-young thought he had caught the ball, but he didn’t receive the ball correctly with his glove, so it flowed down. KT requested a video reading, but it was judged to be a connection operation.

Rojas, who went on base due to an error, settled on third base with Kang Seung-ho and Yang Chan-yeol’s consecutive hits, and then scored on Ahn Jae-seok’s left fielder’s sacrifice fly. A scene that can be a turning point in many ways. After two outs in the bottom of the 5th inning, the next at-bat, he prepared an opportunity to boost his confidence with an exciting home run.
