    Park Hoy-jun of the Pittsburgh Pirates hit his first home run of this season on Sunday.

    In a home game against the San Francisco Giants, Park smacked a solo homer in the bottom of the third inning to narrow the Giants' lead from 2-0 to 2-1, contributing to the Pirates' eventual 4-3 victory.

    It was his first homer in nine months since a game against the Miami Marlins in September last year, and the fourth of his Major League Baseball career.

    Park joined the New York Yankees in 2015 and was traded to the Pirates last year. He has gone back and forth between the majors and minors, getting his third call-up of the season last week.
