Dodgers Week 4 review: Stellar starting pitching & timely home runs - True Blue LA
Batter of the week
Cody Bellinger takes the crown again this week thanks to another ridiculous week, hitting .421 a pair of home runs and driving in six while getting on base half the time. Bellinger punctuated his week by hitting a game-winning homer on Sunday in the ninth inning, after earlier in the game robbing fellow MVP candidate Christian Yelich of a homer of his own.
This award could have easily gone to Joc Pederson, who slammed four home runs of his own and slugged .870, driving in six.

Cody Bellinger is the top performing Dodger vs. Brewers - True Blue LA
His performance against the Brewers gets him named the TBLA Player of the Series
After the Dodgers made a great outing in the four-game set against the Brewers, Cody Bellinger’s performance is the one that shined the brightest.
Bellinger is one of the best hitters in baseball - in the same conversation as guys like Mike Trout and Christian Yelich - and he didn’t slack off in Milwaukee. His most impactful game came on Sunday afternoon, when he stole a home run from Yelich in the 8th and came right back to hit one for himself.
Though he essentially won Sunday’s game for Los Angeles, he was consistently providing the Dodgers with a great performance. In 15 at-bats, he led the team in hits, RBIs and stolen bases.
3 R 6 H 2 HR 5 RBI 1 SB 0.400 AVG .444 OBP .800 SLG 1.244 OPS
Joc Pederson’s performance comes up quite close. Pederson and Bellinger had the same amount of home runs and runs scored, but Bellinger’s stolen homer gave him the edge.
We’ll find out if Bellinger can make his “hot start” into a “hot month” in the upcoming series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

This HR makes zero sense, wins game for LA
MILWAUKEE -- Enrique Hernández owns Madison Bumgarner. He homered three times in a pennant-clincher. He homered twice on Opening Day.
He’s no fluke. But it was still something of a shock on Friday night when he lined an 0-2 fastball from the intimidating Josh Hader for a three-run homer to give the Dodgers a 5-3 comeback victory over the Brewers and extend their win streak to six.
• Hader proves he's human after all
In the Major Leagues, Hernandez had never homered on an 0-2 pitch, and Hader had never allowed one. The Dodgers saw Hader’s act last postseason, saw how manager Craig Counsell utilizes that electric left arm at all different stages of the game. The Dodgers know Hader presents a menacing opposing weapon around which a game plan is drawn.
“You knew with Hader having three days off, they were going to deploy him for multiples [innings] and you don’t know when,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who also knows that 34 pitches should sideline Hader for Saturday night, and maybe Sunday.

Pollock keeps Dodgers homer-happy at home
3-run shot helps L.A. tie mark of 32 straight home games with a blast
LOS ANGELES -- When A.J. Pollock launched a three-run home run off Sonny Gray in the sixth inning of Wednesday’s 3-2 win over the Reds, not only did he break a scoreless tie, he also helped the Dodgers match an MLB record: 32 consecutive home games with a home run.
“It’s a cool stat, for sure,” Pollock said. “It’s a lot of power on this team. I’ve only been a part of, say, like, 15 of those games, but these guys are really trying to do damage. They’re trying to get pitches to hit."
Pollock’s record-tying blast came in support of Walker Buehler’s best start of the season so far, a one-run, 6 1/3-inning effort to secure a three-game sweep of Cincinnati. It was the Dodgers’ 38th home run of the season, the most in the National League and second in MLB to the Mariners’ 42.
“Looking at it over and over and over and over at Pollock, the Dodgers have got a great lineup,” Gray said. “They’ve got a great team. They’re going to grind. They’re going to continue to put pressure on you. Maybe it wasn’t my best pitch, but looking back at it, it was a 1-0 curveball that was in the bottom, location-wise, it was fine. The action on it was fine. He’s a really good player, and he put a good swing on it.”
Gray joins a long list of visiting pitchers who have served up big flies at Dodger Stadium since late last August, one that includes illustrious names like Zack Greinke, Madison Bumgarner and last year’s NL Cy Young Award winner, Jacob deGrom.
The Dodgers’ streak dates back to Aug. 21, 2018, when Manny Machado homered off the Cardinals’ Luke Weaver. In those games, the Dodgers have combined to hit 60 homers. In 15 of those games, the Dodgers have hit multiple home runs, most notably eight on a very memorable 2019 Opening Day. During the streak, the Dodgers have averaged 1.88 homers a game, or a home run every 17.9 at-bats.
The power has come from all over the lineup, as 15 different batters have contributed to the streak. There have been some impressive shots in the bunch, too.
According to Statcast, the farthest projected distance of any of the home runs was 444 feet, which Max Muncy did on Aug. 25, 2018, against the Padres' Matt Strahm. The hardest-hit home run came off Joc Pederson’s bat at 112.6 mph on Sept. 22, 2018 vs. San Diego's Jacob Nix.

The highs and lows of Yasiel Puig's time in L.A.
LOS ANGELES -- He showed up late, then homered early.
How fitting.
Yasiel Puig spent more than half a decade tantalizing the Los Angeles Dodgers with his talent and tormenting them with his indiscretions. It was only right that he'd do the same to his new team upon returning to his old place.
Puig arrived 70 minutes late to his scheduled news conference on Monday afternoon, shortly after Dave Roberts and a group of Dodgers executives distributed National League championship rings to the former players who now reside on the other side.
When he finally sat behind a microphone, Puig professed his love for the Dodgers' fans and spoke glowingly about the camaraderie that exists within the Cincinnati Reds' clubhouse, a not-so-subtle nod to the dynamic he felt was lacking on his former team. The fourth pitch he saw in Monday night's game -- from Clayton Kershaw, the type of lefty who would have confined Puig to the bench during his time with the Dodgers -- sailed over the center-field fence for only his second home run in 13 games this season. The crowd saluted him as he circled the bases.

Dodgers tie MLB record with latest HR at home
LOS ANGELES -- No team in major league history has homered in more consecutive home games than these Los Angeles Dodgers.
They only got one against Sonny Gray and the Cincinnati Reds, and it was all they needed.
A.J. Pollock hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning, and the Dodgers tied the big-league record by hitting a homer in their 32nd consecutive home game during a 3-2 victory Wednesday.
Pollock broke open a scoreless game when he connected off Gray (0-3), providing the Dodgers with all of their runs in their fourth consecutive victory. The Dodgers don't ascribe much importance to their streak, other than the majors-best nine home victories generated from it.
"It's a cool stat, for sure,'' Pollock said. "Honestly, there's a lot of power on this team. These guys are really trying to do damage. They're trying to get pitches to hit, and we like hitting at home.''

The most feared lineups in baseball
Scariest Lineup the Rest of the Way: Los Angeles Dodgers (6.28 runs per game)
The Dodgers blasted a record eight home runs on Opening Day and scored 29 runs in a three-game sweep at Coors Field, but then they lost six in a row to the Cardinals and Brewers, erasing their air of invincibility. The Dodgers hit 235 home runs last season, third-most in National League history, and the early returns suggest they can break the 2000 Astros' National League record of 249.
Cody Bellinger has been an absolute monster, hitting .433/.513/.925 with nine home runs through 18 games. The scary development for opposing pitchers is Bellinger has more walks than strikeouts and has cut his K rate from 23.9 percent to 11.5 percent. Note that strikeout and walk rates stabilize much earlier than other statistics for hitters, so if Bellinger's strikeout rate is going to take a big dip, that means more balls in player and a higher average than his .260 mark from last year. He was hit in the knee with a pitch Monday and left the game, but X-rays were negative and he should be back in the lineup Wednesday.
Can the Dodgers score six runs per game for an entire season? Unlikely. Since the extreme rabbit-ball season of 1930, the only NL team to do that was the 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers, who averaged 6.16 runs per game. Only three other NL teams have averaged 5.75 runs per game -- the aforementioned 2000 Astros and two teams that played in Coors Field. Still, with Max Muncy looking like 2018 wasn't a complete fluke, Joc Pederson locked in, Enrique Hernandez thriving in an everyday role and Austin Barnes hitting well so far, the lineup goes eight deep -- and Corey Seager, Justin Turner and A.J. Pollock haven't even done much yet (just three home runs combined).

The Completely Logical, Financially Prudent Argument for Kyler Murray Choosing the NFL
"The Heisman winner has committed to the Oakland Athletics, who drafted him ninth overall this year. But there’s a case to be made for choosing football, which could offer him more guaranteed and a relatively easier path to the highest level of the sport."
