Joc is on an extra base hit tear

At this point, you could write about every Dodger starter and find something amazing but today I’ll focus on Joc.

Since Joc Pederson showed up as a full-time player in 2015 we have learned several things about our Joc. He is one streaky dude. One moment (for long swaths of at-bats) Joc looks very much like someone who needs to be in AAA, a long moment later, Joc is all-world and you can’t remember why in the world you thought he should be in AAA.

Joc started the season in one those of frigid streaks and just as you thought is this all there is, he exploded and is now hotter than the Western San Fernando Valley in August.

Joc Pederson is on the second hottest extra-base hit run of his career with at least one extra-base hit in his last five games.  His hottest streak which helped get him into the 2015 All-Star hitting contest started on May 31st, 2015 and went six games.  This streak is only at five games but it is the best of his career because he has four doubles and five home runs giving him nine extra-base hits in this stretch.

Joc Pederson batted 8th last night and normally that would be an affront for the hottest hitter in baseball, but with everyone except Justin Turner hot in the Dodger lineup, you can’t complain.
