After hitting the Minnesota Twins on the 10th, he hit a multi-hit in 7 games, and his batting average for the season rose to 0.235.
After one out in the second inning when the match was 0-0, he hit a 98.4 mile (about 158km) four-seam fastball from opponent starter Carlos Hernandez, who came in the middle, and hit a left-handed hit that passed the side of the shortstop.
In the fourth inning, trailing 0-1, with one out and first base, he walked to reliever Mike Myers and advanced to second base in a wild throw. However, the follow-up hit did not lead to a goal.

In the 7th inning, where he continued to trail by 1 run, after a 7-pitch match with Aroldis Chapman, he got a walk and succeeded in reaching base for the 4th time. After two outs in the ninth inning, he retreated with a ground ball.
He also showed great sense in defense and received applause.
Ha-seong Kim, who caught Nate Eaton’s ground ball in the fifth inning with one out and second base, tried to throw it to first base, but when he felt second base runner Nick Prato running toward third base, he quickly turned around. Then he tagged out Prato sliding to third base.
