It’s hard to pick just one player to highlight when the entire team is coming together to deliver great baseball. Though there were many stars in the three-game series against the Reds, Joc Pederson contributed to the Dodgers’ success in two games.
On Monday night, Pederson kicked things off on a good note when he hit a walk-off two-run home run. It was the first walk-off of the year for Los Angeles.
Pederson followed that performance with another two-run homer on Tuesday. This homer, along with Alex Verdugo’s three-RBI game, gave the Dodgers some extra insurance runs.
Wednesday night wasn’t a big day for Pederson, going hitless in three at-bats. Overall in the series, Pederson went 3-for-10 with four RBIs. Here are his stats in the last three games:
|10 AB||3 R||3 H||4 RBI||2 HR||.300 AVG|
Other notable performances
- The Dodgers pitching also impressed in this series, allowing only six runs to score in the three-game set. All three of the Dodgers starters were able to make it past the 6th inning, relieving stress from the bullpen.
- Alex Verdugo and A.J. Pollock also had big games, leading the Dodgers to wins on Tuesday and Wednesday.
