Lee, 36, belted his first home run of the 2013 season against the Hanwha Eagles, as his three-run shot off Denny Bautista helped the Lions win the game 4-0 at home here in Daegu. This was the Lions' sixth game of the season.
Lee finally resumed his chase for the KBO record for career home runs. Yang Joon-hyuk, a retired outfielder and former teammate of Lee's on Samsung, holds the mark with 351. Lee is now at 346.
