Now he is a shortstop for resignation. Noh Jin-hyeok’s face is full of smiles.
Lotte Giants won 8-4 in an exhibition game against Doosan Bears held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 14th. This is the first victory of the exhibition game this year.
Noh Jin-hyeok’s three-run home run in the third inning with a 1-0 lead was the decisive blow. The first point in the first inning was Rex, who walked out, hit home with Doosan starter Kim Dong-ju’s continuous wild throws and balk.
Noh Jin-hyeok played as the second hitter, forming a table setter with lead-off Ahn Kwon-soo. It was a chance for the 1st and 2nd bases without a hit made by Hwang Seong-bin’s hit and Ahn Kwon-soo’s walk in the 3rd inning. Noh Jin-hyeok hit Dong-joo Kim’s 142km fastball with a ball count of 1-0 and passed it over the right fence. It was a beautiful shot with a distance of 110m.
In the 4th inning, Lotte won the victory relatively easily with Yoo Kang-nam’s grand slam. Starter Han Hyeon-hee threw 4 scoreless innings, and Seo Jun-won and Jung Sung-jong gave up 4 runs, but Kim Do-gyu and Koo Seung-min took the mound one after another and cut off the opponent’s flow.
After the game, Noh Jin-hyeok was delighted, saying, “At first, it was a bit awkward to use Sajik Stadium as my home. I took my swing confidently to adapt quickly, and a good hit (home run) came out.”
He then emphasized, “I have a good body and sense in defense, but the ball didn’t come to me well today. I want to receive a lot in the future.” 메이저놀이터
Lotte coach Larry Sutton said, “It is very encouraging that such a performance came out right after the camp,” and praised, “Noh Jin-hyuk’s preemptive 3 stores led the team atmosphere.”
Lotte will play 6 consecutive matches at Sajik Stadium this week, from SSG Landers (15th to 16th) and LG Twins (18th to 19th).
