SEOUL, June 2 (Yonhap) -- After sitting out a game, Kim Hyun-soo of the Baltimore Orioles returned with a vengeance.

Kim went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored, as the Orioles outslugged the Boston Red Sox 13-9 at home Wednesday (local time).

Kim didn't play Tuesday, after starting six previous games in a row. Back in the starting lineup in the No. 2 hole, the South Korean left fielder singled off Boston starter Joe Kelly in the bottom of the first.

Kim advanced to second on Manny Machado's flyout to left, and came home to score on Mark Trumbo's single to right.

Kim then launched a ground rule double to center with one out and a man at first in the bottom second. It was Kim's fourth double of the season.

Kim drew a walk in the third and flied out in the fifth, before picking up his third hit of the game in the seventh.

He moved to third on two walks and came home on a single by Matt Wieters. Kim grounded out to short in the eighth, and Nolan Reimold replaced the South Korean in left field to begin the ninth.

Kim is now batting .382 (21-for-55) and boasts an impressive .469 on-base percentage, tops in the majors among hitters with at least 50 plate appearances.

Also in the American League, Lee Dae-ho of the Seattle Mariners went 2-for-5 in the team's 14-6 loss to the San Diego Padres on the road.

Batting fifth and playing first base, Lee enjoyed his sixth multi-hit game of the season, and his second in as many starts. Lee has platooned at first base with veteran Adam Lind, and is batting .275 (22-for-80).
