Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim, a 28-year-old Korean import, hit his first career home run on Sunday, and followed it up with a graceful bat flip.

Kim took Indians reliever Jeff Manship deep to right in the seventh inning to break a 1-1 tie, and was given the silent treatment by his teammates after rounding the bases.

The former KBO standout with the Doosan Bears entered Sunday hitting .386 with two RBIs in his first 44 big-league at bats.

Here's what the Korean call of the homer sounded like.

Baltimore took the game, 6-4.
