Yesterday I wrote an article about the three automatic outs in the Dodger lineup. Namely I was speaking about Chris Taylor, Enrique Hernandez, and Austin Barnes. Up until last night all three have been pretty awful at the plate. Since writing that article (you’re welcome) all of them have perked up. Hernandez hit a grand slam in Tuesday night’s win over the Giants. Taylor notched three hits tonight, including two home runs, his first career multi-homer game. Even the punch-less Barnes tallied a couple of hits yesterday.
Most notable of course is Taylor. The Dodgers thumped the Giants again 9-2 on Wednesday night. Taylor had possibly the game of his season. He drilled two home runs (A Three-run Shot and a solo homer) and added a double as well to drive in four of the Dodger’s nine runs. His average rose all the way up to .235. His OBP is now threatening to go above .300! Regardless it was a nice rebound for Taylor. Can he keep this up the rest of the way? Because the Dodgers are going to need him. Only time will tell folks. Check out his two bombs below. The Dodgers have won 50 of their first 75 games.
