Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, MLB Postseason

Joc Pederson welcomes Dodgers to Joctober with monster homer (Video)

Joc Pederson welcomes the Los Angeles Dodgers to Joctober, pearls and all.

Joc Pederson gets sweet revenge on his former team by obliterating this poor baseball off Los Angeles Dodgers ace Max Scherzer to tie the ballgame up at two.

When the Atlanta Braves acquired Pederson from the Chicago Cubs, they had no earthly idea he would become such a cultural phenomenon. Wearing a pearl necklace and cranking balls out of Truist Park with his Anthony Rizzo bat, Pederson has provided the swagger Braves Country was missing since Ronald Acuña Jr. tore his ACL. I mean, he hit this baseball over Kennesaw Mountain!

It is not a matter of if Atlanta will construct a statue in Pederson’s likeness, but a matter of when.

This homer came at the perfect time for the Braves. Game 2 starter Ian Anderson was pulled after three innings because it was manager Brian Snitker’s birthday and he can do whatever he wants. While Jesse Chavez came in and gave the Braves an excellent fourth inning, it will be a bullpen game the rest of the way for Atlanta. They won Game 1 over the Dodgers in walk-off fashion.

Nobody dominates the 10th month of the year like Pederson; that’s why they named it after him.
