He was the most productive Dodgers batter against the Giants

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Chris Taylor never had a multi-homer game in his career, but that changed on Wednesday. It was the highlight of his hot series.

He had an RBI in each of the four games versus the Giants, with his most being four in game three. Even when Taylor went hitless in the first game of the series, he provided the team with an RBI groundout. The most productive kind of out.

Taylor finished the series going 7-for-15 with three walks. His seven hits included two homers and two doubles to give him a 1.000 slugging percentage.

He also worked his way onto the bases, earning a .556 on-base percentage.

Since he’s taken over at shortstop, he has really proved himself. And this four-game set was just a taste of what may come.
