In the 6th episode that decided the fate of the first edition of ‘Elotrasico’, Shin Jeong-rak was at the center.

The Lotte Giants won the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League regular season home game against the LG Twins held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 11th, 6-5.

The first ‘Elotrasico’ in 2023, Lotte had to win this game held in the homeroom. It was that intense. He conceded the first run, but turned around to 2-1 카지노사이트in the third inning. However, starter Charlie Barnes struggled with control and lost runs in the 4th and 5th innings, leading to 2-4.

The moment I conceded any more points, it was virtually like losing. Then came the 6th crisis. Lee Tae-yeon, a rookie who pitched in relief, treated Hong Chang-ki as a ground ball, and allowed Moon Seong-joo and Kim Hyeon-soo to hit in succession, resulting in a situation of 1 out 2 and 3 base. The Lotte bench eventually chose veteran Shin Jeong-rak instead of Lee Tae-yeon. He believed in the power of an experienced old man at a time when he could aim for a counterattack only when he was blocked.

Shin Jeong-rak was a player released from the Hanwha Eagles after the 2022 season. He played in 44 games, got 2 wins, 1 loss, 4 holds, 1 save, and an earned run average of 4.02, which was not bad, but he eventually lost the team. Lotte did not turn away from him. It was the best card to add experience to the team. And it was Shin Jeong-rak who finally answered that belief.

Shin Jeong-rak was a man with a strong heart. He caught foreign hitter Austin Dean with a fly ball and recorded the second out count. After the game, he said, “It was a tight situation, but I went up to the mound as comfortable as possible. As he played baseball, he played a lot of foreign right-handed opponents, so he could throw comfortably,” he said.

Lefty hitter Moon Bo-gyeong was sent to the Lotte Bench with an automatic intentional fourth pitch. He ordered Shin Jeong-rak to compete with Kim Min-seong. It was a close battle going all the way to the 6th pitch. In the end, Shin Jung-rak handled it as a floating ball to second base, and prevented a mass loss crisis with no runs.

Shin Jeong-rak’s scoreless defense in the 6th was a signal of a reversal in the atmosphere. In the subsequent 6th attack, the Lotte batting line, Roh Jin-hyeok’s 2 RBIs, timely hit, An Chi-hong’s infield hit, and LG fielder’s defensive mistake occurred, resulting in a big inning with 4 points.

It is Shin Jeong-rak, who reported his first victory after finding a new team. It was also ‘El Lotra Sico’ held at his resignation. He said, “I think I was well integrated into the team because all the team members were kind and friendly,” and “Thanks to them, I was able to win my first victory.
