Rojas continued, “It was regrettable that the results at the plate were not good recently, but it was helpful to talk with Goto hitting coach before the game. He was grateful that Coach Goto advised him to focus on swings with a clear purpose instead of passive swings, and this worked well.”
Manager Lee Seung-yeop also said, “I want to praise Kim Jae-hwan, Yang Seok-hwan and Lohas in the other line. He showed the ability to solve like a central hitter,” he praised.
