The team hit a whopping 11 home runs in six games last week, with Choi leading the way with five of them. Choi now leads the team with 19 home runs this season.

The SSG lineup has been overwhelmingly home run-producing this season. The team ranks fourth in batting average at 2.661, but has 71 team home runs, a whopping 24 ahead of second-place Doosan (47).
