What happened to the lucky foreign hitter? Jack Rex, a foreign hitter for the Lotte Giants, was replaced during the game as he showed an inability to concentrate on the game.

Lotte suffered a 0-6 defeat in the match against the KIA Tigers held at Sajik Stadium in Busan on the 19th. Lotte, who was aiming for a winning series, marked the series with a record of 1 win and 1 loss. It was regrettable that he could not make use of the chance to safely load the bases in the 3rd inning. However, in the process, Lotte Jack Rex’s play left a disappointment.

Even until last week, Rex was the problem solver and the core of the other line. He went 0-for-3 against Samsung on the 16th, but until last week, he had a decent batting average of 3.4 (14 hits in 46) and 10 RBIs with an OPS of .791. 카지노사이트

However, in the first two games of the series against the KIA this week, Rex is showing signs of anomaly. Rex was silent in the KIA match on the 18th with 4 at-bats, 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. It was the second three-strikeout game of the season, and Rex was beaten with a persistent high-fastball. His weakness seemed to have been seen now, and he was shaken.

The afterimage at bat led to the defense. In the 5th inning of the day, Choi Hyung-woo tried to throw a right-handed hit, but hit the ball without holding the ball properly. The runners advanced one more base with the throw, and the 4-0 game was reversed to 4-5. The team eventually succeeded in reversing 7-5 and won, but it was confirmed that Rex was shaking.

Rex once again seemed unable to focus on the game. First of all, the results at bat were not good. On this day, he also went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. Even in the process of conceding, something was missing. Even if Rex’s defense is outstanding, you can’t see it, but you can’t see it’s inferior compared to other players.

In the top of the 4th inning, in the crisis with no bases loaded, Ko Jong-wook’s fly ball hit the right fielder. The high-flying ball headed for the first prize. Rex’s defensive position shifted slightly to right-middle, but he could have caught it if he started quickly and chased relentlessly. However, Rex’s gait was not very fast. In the end, he was connected with a right-handed hit at the right time. It was clear that it was not an easy shot, but it was also true that it was an unfortunate scene. In the end, Lotte lost 5 runs in the top of the 4th inning. 

Rex is a player who has to play in the center of the line anyway. After stepping on the stage of the KBO League in the second half of last year, he has played games without a relatively slump until this year. The 2nd highest foreign hitter’s amount of 1.3 million dollars proves the expectations for Rex. That expectation seemed to live up to his first two weeks. However, it seems that the first crisis has come to Rex. /jhrae@osen.co.kr
