Pederson’s contribution was minimal, but came at the right time.

There wasn’t just one player who seemed to stand out in the Dodgers’ series in St. Louis. But the one player who did help change the script of the series was Joc Pederson.

The team was on an 18-inning scoreless inning streak and things were looking dim. Joc Pederson’s home run in game three finally put the Dodgers on the board and allowed for more runs to follow. His home run didn’t help the team win the game, but it did help get the offense back on track.

In the four-game series, Pederson went 3-for-14, scoring three runs.

Other notable performances

Enrique Hernandez, who was 4-for-13, also hit a home run in the series and snagged two RBIs.

David Freese hit his first home run of the season in his old home stadium.
