His contributions earn him the TBLA Player of the Series honor

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.
