Joc Pederson had himself a series. In each of the three games against the Pirates, Pederson landed two hits. Additionally, he snagged an extra base hit in every game in the series, including a double, triple and home run.
Pederson drove in more runs than any other Dodgers player in the series, with a total of five. Several other Dodgers came close to this, including Cody Bellinger, David Freese (grand slam in game one) and Matt Beaty with four a piece.
In the series, Pederson was the most productive Dodger in the series, going 6-for-11 without a strikeout.

However, it should be noted that Pederson did not run after he hit a fair fly ball out of frustration. He gets a ding for this one.
#Dodgers Dave Roberts said he had "a brief conversation" with Joc Pederson after the game about his failure to run on a pop out in the 2nd inning. "That's unacceptable right there," Roberts said.— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) May 26, 2019
This is the third time Pederson is the series top performer, just behind Cody Bellinger who has taken five.
