SEOUL, March 14 (Yonhap) -- After going hitless in his first seven spring training games, Kim Hyun-soo of the Baltimore Orioles has now hit safely in three straight games.

The South Korean, batting sixth and playing left field, went 1-for-2 with an RBI against the Minnesota Twins at CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers, Florida, on Sunday.

He drove in the Orioles' third run of the first inning with a sacrifice fly off Minnesota starter Ricky Nolasco.

After grounding out to second in the third, Kim hit a two-out single in the fifth off left-hander Fernando Abad.

It was Kim's third hit in three games, but the first to leave the infield.

Kim was lifted for pinch hitter L.J. Hoes with one out in the eighth. Kim is batting .103 (3-for-29) in the spring.

The Twins' South Korean designated hitter/first baseman, Park Byung-ho, sat out the game, which the Twins claimed 14-5.

Elsewhere, Seattle Mariners' Lee Dae-ho went 0-for-2 against the Cincinnati Reds. He hit into a double play his first time up and struck out in his next at-bat. The Reds beat the M's 5-3.

The hulking first baseman/designated hitter, hoping to make the 25-man roster after signing a minor league deal with Seattle, left three men on base. He's batting .267 (4-for-15) in the spring.
