That’s why you spent 5 billion won.
Lotte Giants ‘No Prosecutor’ Noh Jin-hyeok’s firepower is amazing. The four-year, five-billion-won FA investment is showing great success.
Lotte won 7-5 in the ‘Distribution Rivalry’ against SSG Landers held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 19th. It was a good start to the 3rd match. It was said that the direction of the lead fight could change depending on the result of this three-game series, but Lotte made the first blow and dropped SSG to third place and became the sole leader.
There must have been several factors in the victory, but Noh Jin-hyeok’s two RBI doubles in the 8th inning were decisive. SSG followed up with 1 run in the top of the 8th inning and Lotte was chased by 4-2, but Roh Jin-hyeok was able to win by hitting the final blow against SSG rookie pitcher Lee Ro-wun, who was throwing bravely.
Recently, Noh Jin-hyeok’s bat is hot. From the match against Hanwha Eagles on the 18th to the match against SSG on the 19th, multi-hit for two days in a row. In the match against Hanwha, he hit a home run. The game against Hanwha on the 16th became the protagonist of a dramatic two-run home run in the extra game. The Doosan Bears match held in Busan on the 11th was also cheered after hitting a double to end the 10th overtime. In the last 10 games, he recorded 3.44 and raised his batting average to 2.92. The aftermath of foreign hitter Jek Rex’s departure due to injury was almost great, but the damage was minimized as Noh Jin-hyeok firmly supported the center back.
Defense is just as important as the bat. It’s not flashy, but it’s stable. There have been only two mistakes this season. This is the lowest number among the starting shortstops in the 10 teams. He is also good at defending the center, and if he exerts such an influence even at the plate, Lotte fans can’t help but be happy.
Lotte has no memory of having Park Ki-hyuk as the last regular shortstop in the late 2000s. The player who has been playing for a long time is the current defensive coach, Moon Kyu-hyun. For two years from the 2020 season, foreign shortstop Machado filled the vacancy, but after he left, the shortstop position was again Muju Gongsan. He even traded Lee Hak-joo to fill the shortstop position last season 토스카지노.
However, the problem was not resolved quickly, and in the end Lotte’s method was ‘money’. He placed a ‘big’ bet of 5 billion won on free agent Noh Jin-hyeok, but if he continues his current performance, it seems highly likely that he will remain as a ‘model free agent’.
