It’s the sixth time he’s received this honor

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Joc Pederson heated up after going ofer against the Rockies over the weekend.

He went 4-for-8 with two walks in the three-game set in San Diego, including three home runs. He tallied up four RBIs and scored four runs himself as well.

Joc’s pair of home runs on Wednesday night proved to be crucial to the Dodgers’ success, coming at the most critical times. His first came in the leadoff position, giving the Dodgers a lead very early on. The Padres came back and the game was tied when he hit his second of the night, giving LA the go-ahead.

He’s only hit more home runs in a series once this year — when he smashed four dingers hosting the Rockies in early September.

Joc Pop — like Corey Seager — decided to get hot at just the right time. Heading into the postseason.

It’s the sixth time Joc Pederson receives the “honor” of being named Player of the Series. Who will be the last to get the title this season?
