Contrast for foreign batters… SSG Heredia 3 RBIs, Doosan Rojas made an error and struck out
- on Apr 29, 2023
Professional baseball SSG Landers and Doosan Bears recruited foreign hitters for the 2023 season and invested $1 million, the “upper limit on recruiting new foreign players,” side by side.
It’s still early in the season, but the contrast is completely mixed.
Guillermo Heredia (SSG) is playing an active role worthy of ‘1 million dollars’ with high-purity hitting.
On the other hand, Jose Rojas (Doosan) is struggling with a batting average of 0.159 (11 hits in 69 at-bats), the second lowest after Brian O’Gredi (Hanwha Eagles, batting average 0.127), who has already gone down to the second group among foreign hitters.
The confrontation held at SSG Landers Field in Incheon on the 29th was a game that seemed to have compressed the early 2023 season of the two foreign batters.
Heredia posted 1 hit and 3 RBIs in 4 at-bats that day. He only had one hit, but made the winning run.
Rojas was hitless in four at-bats, striking out in both at-bats in scoring range. Also, he made a fatal mistake.
At the end of the first inning when the score was 0-0, Rojas, the right fielder of Doosan, with no one on first base, missed Choi Joo-hwan’s ordinary floating ball.
SSG, who continued to have chances for 1st and 2nd base safely due to Rojas’ fatal mistake, Choi Jeong-yi stopped with a grounder in front of the 3rd baseman, but Heredia’s double from the right fielder from 1st and 3rd base took the lead by 2 points.
Heredia also added an RBI in the 4th inning with a ground ball next to the second baseman from 1st and 3rd base.
Rojas, who lowered his head in defense, could not make up for it even at the plate.
In the beginning of the second inning, which was trailing 0-2, Rojas withdrew with a looking strikeout on first and second base.
In the beginning of the 7th inning, where the score was 3-8, Rojas struck out with 2 out on 1st and 2nd base.
Lojas is struggling with a batting average of 0.157, 4 home runs, 10 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.253, and a slugging percentage of 0.329 until the 29th. The thrilling memory of hitting an extra-time home run in the opening game on April 1 has faded amid the sluggish batting average of 0.200 (4 hits in 20 at-bats) in the scoring range.
Heredia has earned the absolute trust of SSG fans and colleagues.
Heredia’s performance is a batting average of 0.341, 2 homers, 19 RBIs, an on-base percentage of 0.394, and a slugging percentage of 0.484. Even in scoring position, he is strong with a batting average of 0.353 (12 hits in 34 at-bats).온라인카지노
Heredia, who also scored 3 RBIs on this day, said, “I am playing as the 4th hitter recently, but I do not pay much attention to the batting order or the situation. It seems to lead to good results,” he said in an ‘exemplary interview’.
He said, “It was effective to prepare a lot for the KBO League from the spring camp. There are many submarine pitchers in the KBO, so we prepared accordingly.” season’ was promised.
SSG looks at Heredia’s ‘unsatisfied’ appearance with satisfaction.
