Koo, who had reached base in each of his previous two at-bats for a multi-hit game, drove a two-pitch fastball from LG starter Casey Kelly over the right field fence for a two-run arch in the bottom of the fifth inning with his team leading 2-1.
The home run gave Koo, who has produced at least 100 hits every year since 2015, his rookie season, the 16th player in KBO history to reach 100 hits in nine consecutive seasons.
Samsung, meanwhile, took a 4-1 lead in the seventh inning thanks to Koo’s two-run shot.
