With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, trailing 3-4, Lee singled to left-center field off Lee Young-ha for his 2300th hit.

Son didn’t stop there. With the score tied at 4-4 in the ninth inning, he lined an infield single to shortstop for his 2301st hit. He was replaced by pinch-hitter Jae-hwan Shin, who scored the winning run on Jason Martin’s game-winning single.
After the game, Son said, “I felt sorry for the team because I didn’t play well on defense today, but I’m a little happy that my 2300th hit was a hit that helped the team. I hope my next hit will also be a hit that helps the team.”
He gave credit to the fans for the milestone. “I remember the screams of the fans before I reached 2300 hits,” said Son. I think it was possible because of their support and cheers.” “Today’s hit is the last one. I will run for the team’s victory from tomorrow,” he said, promising to perform in front of the NC fans.
