Seven nights, four 3-run home runs, multiple victories, who knew?
On Saturday night Justin Turner launched a three run home run to help down the Brewers 10 -6
On Thursday night Trayce Thompson slugged a three run home in a losing cause 8 -6
Last Wednesday Scott Van Slyke crushed a three run home run to provide all the offense in a Dodger win 3 – 2.
The LAD have hit four three run home runs in the past seven nights, while winning five games in a row. The three run home run is generally considered a winning strategy, and the Dodgers to their credit are implementing the Earl Weaver strategy extremely well.
