In the bottom of the 10th inning, where the score was 1-1, Lojas Jr. hit Ronel Blanco with a right-handed hit against Ronel Blanco in the bottom of the 10th inning and led the team to a 2-1 victory. Tigres won the 23rd championship in the club’s career and six years after the 2016-2017 season with a series record of 4 wins and 1 loss.
Lojas Jr., who made the team 1-0 with a timely hit in the 3rd inning, received 15 votes in the MVP vote after winning the championship, losing to club designated hitter Jorge Alfaro (18 votes), but was highlighted by the media as a hero who led the championship.
After joining kt in 2017, Lohas Junior played 4 seasons, recording a total of 511 games, 132 homers, 409 RBIs, 350 points, and a batting average of 0.321. In 2020, he led the league in home runs, RBIs, runs scored, and slugging percentage, and also became the first foreigner to win 4 batting crowns.
Lohas, who won MVP in the 2020 season, joined the Hanshin Tigers in Japan in 2021, the very next year. However, in Hanshin, he performed poorly with 149 games, 17 homers, 48 RBIs and a batting average of 0.220 in two seasons, and eventually became a free agent after the last season.
Rojas Jr. is expected to try again in the major leagues by using his performance in the Dominican Republic’s winter league as a springboard. Since scouts from each major league team are watching the winter league, a minor league contract is a realistic goal.
