Jose Rojas (30, Doosan Bears), an expensive foreign hitter who cost 1 million dollars (1.3 billion won), who made the headquarters sick, woke up perfectly a month after the opening. To Doosan, which is about to return to foreign pitcher Dylan Pyle, Rojas’ rebound is all the more welcome as it is an important element that can become a whole like the final puzzle.
Lohas started as the left fielder with the 7th batter in the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League home game against the Hanwha Eagles held at Jamsil Stadium in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 2nd, and played 2 hits in 3 at-bats (1 home run), 1 RBI, 1 run, and led to a 3-0 victory.
Although he is still struggling with a batting average of 10%, the record of two consecutive multi-hits (more than two hits in one game) is a significant performance.
Previously, Doosan coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Lohas will get better when it gets warmer. It should get better.” He had been asked about this for almost a month after the opening and he had no choice but to show his trust, but he sighed deeply as if he was worried inside and showed a shy smile as he lowered the bat he was holding onto the floor.
Even though the command tower showed faith, he went 0-for-7 in the next two games and was silent. On the 30th of last month, he scored 2 hits in 4 at-bats, including a double, against SSG Landers. He also saved the team from a 4-game losing streak by posting valuable RBIs.
It was still hard to believe that he was a complete rebound. This is why manager Lee Seung-yeop placed him as the 7th hitter on this day as well. Lohas’ batting order, which was the center of the batting line at the beginning of the season, gradually went down with sluggishness.
Did the multi-hit against SSG signal a turnaround? Lojas got the job done in the bottom of the 5th inning when the balance of 0 was tight, and there was no runner with one out. Hanwha starter Jang Min-jae, who was throwing a scoreless pitch, lifted the splitter that was driven to the middle at 125 km per hour, and the ball went over the right wall and became a preemptive solo home run with a distance of 120 m. He jumped to second place in this category following season 5 gun and teammate Yang Seok-hwan (6th).
Coach Lee Seung-yeop showed unwavering trust in the foreign hitter who was in sluggishness for a month after the opening. He was optimistic, saying, “The contact ability and the eye to see the ball are good. It’s a spray heater style.” However, at some point, some hesitation began to be read in the question about LOHAS. He had nothing to do but believe, and the frustration grew even more.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, which was progressing with a 1-0 lead on thin ice, Lojas came out once again. As the lead batter against Hanwha’s third pitcher, Seung-Joo Han, he scored a hit in the middle of the right and was later replaced by runner Jo Su-Haeng.
After the game, head coach Lee Seung-yeop said, “Rojas’ one shot was decisive in the other lineup. He seems to get better as he plays.”온라인카지노
The one who is more satisfied than anyone else is himself. Rojas said, “I’m happy to be able to contribute to the team’s victory with a home run.” said.
Coach Goto played a big role in being able to withstand the extreme sluggishness. He said, “When I was in a recent slump, Coach Goto and the hitting part coaching staff held me up well.
He also did not forget to thank his fans. “Doosan Bears fans are really full of energy,” he said.
There are still many batters to survive, but the fact that Lohas, who was most concerned about, is showing a rebound can bring synergy to the team. The rebound of hitters with long hitting power can lead to an umbrella effect. This is why Doosan’s expectations for May, which started with victory, are growing.
