Kim Hyun-soo of the Baltimore Orioles has scored his first RBI of the season, breaking a lengthy struggle at the plate. In Saturday's game against the Kansas City Royals, Kim went two for four with one RBI. The Orioles crushed the Royals 8-3.

Kim had not been included in the Orioles' playing roster for the previous seven games, after he appeared as a pinch hitter in a game against the Texas Rangers in mid-April. Kim has only played in four of the Orioles' 16 games this season. 

The Baltimore Sun commented that "Outfielder Kim [Hyun-soo] came to the Orioles with the reputation of being one of the most patient hitters in [Korea], and even though playing time has been scarce during his first three weeks in the majors, he's already learning that being more aggressive at the plate can pay off."
