After launching two home runs on Tuesday, Park Byung-ho of the Nexen Heroes put himself on pace to reach a slugging milestone in the ongoing Korea Baseball Organization season.
Park belted his league-leading 15th and 16th homers against the Hanwha Eagles on Tuesday, helping the Heroes to a 3-1 victory at their home, Mokdong Stadium in Seoul.
With 16 homers in 38 games, Park could reach 53 homers by the end of the 128-game season and become only the third KBO player to hit the half-century mark.
Lee Seung-yeop of the Samsung Lions set a KBO record with 54 in 1999 and broke it with 56 in 2003. (Yonhap)
