Dodgers: Top 5 Offensive Performances of the First Half
Corey Seager’s Three-Homer Game
June 21st, 2017
The Dodgers took down the Mets,12-0 behind the offense that was led by a career night from Corey Seager, which included his second career three home run game.
His first home run was of the two-run variety and came before an out was recorded and traveled 410 feet. The Mets had rookie Robert Gsellman on the mound and he dealt up a meatball that Seager easily drove to dead center.
Corey wasted no time on his second home run as he found himself facing Gsellman again in the 4th inning. On a 3-2 count, Gsellman served up a 93 MPH fastball right down Broadway that Corey drove to the opposite field for a solo shot and his second of the game. He was far from done, however.
Corey came up again in the 5th inning and Gsellman was surprisingly still in the game. With two men on and two men out Corey drove another fastball to the opposite field, which brought his total to three home runs and six runs batted in. This homer put the Dodgers up 10-0.
Corey got another at-bat to aim for four home runs and the “home run cycle”, but “all” he did was hit a double. Sheesh DFA him. The young Dodger star reminded the world that Cody Bellinger wasn’t the only young phenom in LA.
