Jason Martin (28), NC’s new foreign hitter, showed off his sluggish performance in the final game of the exhibition game and finally showed off a fierce swing. He cited the advice of Dinos one-club man Park Min-woo (30) as a factor that helped him survive the tough times.
Martin started as center fielder 4 times in the final match against KT Wiz in the 2023 KBO League held at Suwon KT Wiz Park on the 28th, and led the team to a 3-2 victory with 2 hits and 2 RBIs in 3 at-bats. 메이저사이트
Martin, who was in a slump with a batting average of 4.5 leagues (1 hit in 22 at-bats) before the game. In the first inning, when the score was 0-0, he hit a sacrifice fly with 1 out, 1st and 3rd base, and after 2 outs in the 3rd inning, where he was leading 1-0, he aimed for the first ball of exclusion and connected it with a heavy hit. The bat broke, but the ball passed through the infield with power. It was the second hit in an exhibition game after 5 games since the match against Kiwoom on the 21st. Afterwards, Martin appeared from 2 out 1st and 2nd base in the 5th inning with a 1-0 lead, hit 1 RBI and 2 bases against changed pitcher Son Dong-hyun, and even made his first multi-hit in the demonstration game.
Martin, who we met after the game, said, “During the demonstration game, (hitting) didn’t go the way I wanted, so I had a hard time, but I still got two hits today. My heart has become a little lighter, and I think I can start the regular season well,” he smiled brightly.
