Two successive victories have raised Park`s season win tally to 11.

In a road game against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field in Denver, Park gave up 7 hits and 4 runs (2 earned runs) in 7 innings, but was able to rack up another win thanks to strong hitting. His ERA is now 4.14. Park left the mound in the 8th inning with the Dodgers leading 6-4.

At bat, Park went 2-for-3 with a double, helping to gain consecutive wins against Japanese pitchers by beating Masato Yoshii.

With 11 wins (7 losses), Park is ranked 4th along with Garrett Stevenson (St. Louis Cardinals) in the National League wins category, after Arizona`s Randy Johnson (15 wins) and Atlanta`s twin towers, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine (12 wins). Park has jumped ahead of LA ace Kevin Brown (10 wins 3 losses).
