Does anybody know what this hole is? (radiator)

I did a radiator flush,changed the coolant and then it started leaking..I'm wondering why Honda would put a hole there

My thoughts are that maybe the gasket for the drain plug needs to be replaced and that something was clogging the hole which came out when I did the flush..any help appreciated :|

I'm thinking to visit a radiator repair shop and have them weld something in there,but if there's an OEM piece available,I'll buy it

There is two holes. one for the plastic screw and one for the drain. Its kinda like a faucet...
I would get a new drain cock that would prolly help.

That pics looks like it was taken at the first lunar landing. Can't really tell which end is up.
