SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) - South Korean slugger Lee Dae-ho has set a Korean major league record by hitting home runs in nine consecutive games.

Ken Griffey Jr., Don Mattingly and Dale Long share Major League Baseball's mark by hitting home runs in eight straight games.

J.K. Moon, an official with the Korea Baseball Organization, said the Lotte Giants infielder hit a three-run homer Saturday in a game against the Kia Tigers in Gwangju, about 210 miles southwest of Seoul.
