This happened before Game 4, which the Dodgers lost. Bad luck charm?
The Dodgers have four hitters with 25 home runs for just the fourth time in franchise history.
Joc Pederson‘s two-run home run Wednesday against the San Diego Padres gave the center fielder 25 this season. He joins teammates Justin Turner (27), Yasmani Grandal (27) and Corey Seager (25) in the exclusive club.
Pederson and Snider have something in common, too:

Pederson and Duke Snider are only players in Dodgers history with 2 25-HR seasons before turning 25.

If you’ve been to Dodger Stadium, you’ll recognize the setting for “Out Of My League,” a six-episode series on AwesomenessTV.
After its premiere on Monday, September 19th, “Out of My League” debuts episodes every Monday through the finale on October 24th, the day before Game One of the World Series. Joc Pederson filmed some scenes for the finale.
An Awesomeness press release offered the following blurb: “Shot in and around legendary Dodger Stadium, “Out of My League” follows Claire (Luthringshausen), a die-hard Dodgers fan visiting her dad in LA for the summer, and Chase (Redmon), a surfer who knows little about baseball. Claire is doing a good job avoiding distractions while spending her days at the ballpark rooting on her team, until she meets Chase and both of their worlds are turned upside down.”
Check out the trailer above, which includes a peek at Pederson’s cameo.
AwesomenessTV can be watched on its dedicated YouTube channel, Netflix, Hulu and more.
The Dodgers placed Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with left elbow tendinitis, and suddenly need a pitcher to start Wednesday against the Washington Nationals.
The Dodgers also placed reliever Casey Fien on the 15-day DL with tendinitis in his right elbow retroactive to Sunday. Outfielder Joc Pederson, whose rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City is over, was activated from the disabled list, and left-handed reliever Luis Avilan was recalled from Triple-A.
Ryu missed all of 2015, and the first three months of the 2016 regular season, while rehabbing from left shoulder labrum surgery. He returned July 7 against the San Diego Padres and allowed six runs in 4 ⅔ innings, suffering the loss. That remains his only major league start to this point in the season.
An MRI on Ryu’s left elbow showed no changes from his previous MRI.
Jose De Leon is scheduled to pitch for Oklahoma City on Wednesday. The Triple-A Dodgers are currently in Tacoma, Washington. De Leon, a 23-year-old right-hander, has yet to make his major league debut.
Brock Stewart, a 24-year-old right-hander, has made one spot start for the Dodgers already this season and was scheduled to start for Oklahoma City tonight. It’s possible the Dodgers could give Stewart an extra day’s rest before his second cup of coffee in the big leagues.
