      Park Chan-ho of the Philadelphia Phillies in the Major League Baseball got no decision in his third start of the season, despite hitting the third homerun of his MLB career and his first in eight years and seven months.

      Park, the ninth starter in the Phillies' rotation, allowed five hits, including two homeruns and four runs in the seventh innings of an away match against the Florida Marlins in the Dolphins Stadium in Miami on Sunday (KST). He handed over the mound to Chad Durbin in the bottom of the eighth inning when the Phillies were down 3 to 4.

      In the top of the third inning with one out with no runners on base and the game tied at zero, Park hit a homerun over the right side of the fence. It was Park's first hit of the season as well as his third career MLB homerun. Park hit two homers in 2000 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Park has appeared in four games, of which three are starts, this season, and has yet to earn a decision, with ERA at 7.16.
