Noh, batting third in the lineup against the Doosan Bears at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Wednesday, hit a 125-meter home run over the right-center field fence with one out in the bottom of the first inning, 0-0.
It was his first home run in three days. Noh had previously hit his 26th home run of the season with a three-homer blast against the Suwon KT Wiz on April 9, and three days later, he added his 27th at home.
Before the surge, the home run race was a two-way tie between Noh and Choi Jung (SSG Landers). Noh was the first to reach the 20-homer plateau, and Choi followed suit, but the gap between the two has widened somewhat, with Noh hitting 21 first and Choi adding 21 on the ninth day of his binge.
He is also ahead in the RBI race. The home run extended his lead to 73 RBIs on the season. Second-place Choi and third-place Austin Dean are close behind with 66 RBIs.
