Dodgers’ Mookie Betts, Teoscar Hernandez Make Franchise History

How Mookie Betts or Teoscar Hernandez didn’t win National League Player of the Week stays doubtful. (The Diamondbacks’ Lourdes Gurriel Jr. took the honors for the four-day “week.”) The 2 a minimum of made a little bit of baseball history Monday night versus the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.

When Hernandez introduced his 4th crowning achievement of the year into the left field bleachers throughout the bottom of the 6th inning, he signed up with Betts with 4 crowning achievement each through the very first 7 video games of the season. According to MLB.com’s Sarah Langs, it’s the very first time a set of Dodgers colleagues have actually each struck 4 homers through the very first 7 video games in the very same season. They’re connected for the league lead.

The 2 gamers likewise lead the group in RBIs, with Betts at 10 and Hernandez at 9. They likewise are very first and 2nd in runs scored. Betts has actually scored 12 runs and Hernandez has actually scored 8.

Hernandez has actually been an efficient addition to the middle of the Dodgers’ lineup. He reportedly passed on several larger contract offers to sign a one-year, $23.5 million handle the Dodgers in January.

“I think with Teoscar, it’s not right-handed vs. left-handed. For him, it’s just pitch selection, and he’s hitting some breaking balls that are down below the zone and taking some good swings. It’s a stressful one through five in our lineup, and obviously when you have him in the six-hole, there’s a lot of traffic, there always seems to be guys on base, and he has that propensity to get that big hit.”

With Hernandez pinching hit power out of the No. 6 area, the overwhelming job for opposing pitchers to survive all 9 batters in the lineup is ending up being harder. However, the scariest part is that the season simply began.
