Doosan Fernandez started twice as a designated hitter in a match between Kia and Doosan in the “2022 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO League” held at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the afternoon of the 11th.
Fernandez has had three hits in 12 at-bats since the 8th, but has not had any long hits. In the match against Kia, he stepped down with a grounder to second base in the bottom of the first inning with no outs, a fly to center field with two outs in the bottom of the third inning, and a fly to center field in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Fernandez hit a 130-kilometer slider from Lee Joon-young, who pitched as a relief pitcher following Yang Hyun-jong in the bottom of the seventh inning, to hit a double to the right of the center field. Fernandez, who is happy with his long-awaited long hit, performed a ceremony for the Doosan dugout for a long time. 스포츠토토탑
Fernandez hit a ground ball to shortstop in the bottom of the third inning of the game against Lotte on the 2nd and recorded a disgrace that led to his 30th double play of the season.
And his batting average in the last 10 games is 0.242, which is lower than his season average of 0.299 so he is under extreme stress. One long hit from the last line of the game against Kia seems to have relieved some of his stress and performed a ceremony.
Fernandez, who recorded a batting average of 0.344 with 197 hits in his first season of debut in 2019 and a batting average of 0.340 with 199 hits the following year, is showing a little sluggishness in the 2022 season, including 30 double plays.
Doosan laughed in the final game of the Chuseok holiday with a 6-3 come-from-behind victory over Kia.
Doosan starter Brandon Waddell allowed five hits, four strikeouts, and four walks in five innings. Kim Myung-shin, Jung Chul-won, and Hong Gun-hee defended the victory by fighting hard. In the at-bat, Jung Soo-bin led the victory with four hits in five at-bats, Huh Kyung-min with two hits in four at-bats, and Yang Seok-hwan’s tie-breaking home run.
