Noh Si-hwan (23, Hanwha), the sole home run leader, drew his 27th arch of the season.

Noh Si-hwan, who added three home runs against the KT Wiz on the 9th, took the lead in the league by adding a home run in three days.

The gap with second-place Choi Jung (SSG, 21 home runs) is six.

Hanwha, which gained momentum with Noh Si-hwan’s home run, has a 2-0 lead as of the top of the third inning.
