Rojas, who opened his first fall baseball season with a double in the first inning, hit a solo home run with no runners and one out in the third inning for a 2-0 lead. While dealing with NC starter Tanner Turley, he was hit hard on the instep of his right foot by a foul ball he hit and complained of pain, but after a full count, he hit a slider on the 8th pitch and went over the right wall. It was Rojas’ first home run of the postseason.

Doosan is currently behind NC 4-5 in the top of the 5th inning.
