Professional baseball player Kiwoom Park Byeong-ho added two home runs today (16th), hitting the 20-home run mark for the second time in history for 8 years in a row.

Park Byeong-ho, who has been struggling to escape the slump by changing his lower body movements to a simpler, hit a two-run home run in the 19th season that crossed the left fence in the 4th inning of the first double-header game with Samsung.

In the second game, he drew a two-run arch once again, 4 times, and stepped on the 20-home run mark for eight years in a row.

It is the second record in history after Seung-Yup Lee, who hit 20 home runs for eight consecutive seasons since 1997.

Park Byeong-ho led Kiwoom's pursuit by hitting the opponent's shortstop in the sixth inning and adding a bouncing bullet-like hit.

The competition for the batting king that Kiwoom Lee Jung-hoo seemed to be solidifying is getting fierce again.

Today's double header continued to catch well-hit bats and while Lee Jung-hoo's batting average fell to 30.05 and 8ri, KT Kang Baek-ho hit 2 hits, including two RBIs in the 5th inning against Hanwha, raising his batting average to 30-05 again.

KT is accelerating its 'win consolidation' ahead of Hanwha, with starting Despine's 7 innings and 2 runs.

KIA is holding the ankle of 4th-placed Doosan, who is busy on the way to the lead with Hwang Dae-in's comeback three-point home run.
