Joc Pederson’s NSFW celebration after crushing home run in Game 5 is awesome

Dodgers slugger Joc Pederson was amped after hitting a home run in Game 5.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have opened up a quick 3-0 lead over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 5 of the World Series after losing Game 4 in one of the most crippling manners imaginable.

But it’s clear they put that in the rearview after managing to get after Tyler Glasnow early on Sunday night. Two first-inning runs came across the plate in the form of a Corey Seager RBI double and a Cody Bellinger RBI single.

Then came the second inning, and Joc Pederson absolutely tattooed a fastball over the left-center field wall to extend the lead. He didn’t waste a moment celebrating after he crossed home.

He knew that sucker was gone the second he laid wood on it. The lefty slugger has been huge for LA this postseason and every Dodgers fan has to be thankful that offseason trade with the Angels fell through.

How could you not want this energy on your team every second of the season?

“They don’t want that smoke! Let’s f—ing go!!” Welcome to Joctober, everyone. Enjoy the ride.

He continued jawing in the dugout to support his teammates and attempt to rattle Glasnow even further. Pederson batted .389 with a .977 OPS during the NLCS, so everyonevshould’ve seen his hot bat continuing to lace fastballs in the World Series.

This is his third Fall Classic, after all. He wants a ring and he’s not going to let an epic Rays comeback deprive him of another. This is the run support Clayton Kershaw needs to get LA back on track, and his teammates are helping alleviate the pressure on their embattled star pitcher, who badly needs to save his postseason legacy.

Let’s f—ing go, indeed.
