Dodgers Hit Historic 8 Home Runs on Opening Day
Home run derby at Dodger Stadium!
After a slow offseason, the Dodgers came into this season with not as much hype as in years past. After coming back from back to back World Series losses, the Dodgers made minimal changes to their offense as well as trading stars Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp.
Thursday afternoon the Dodgers gave a preview of what the 2019 season could look like, hitting 8 home runs, which is an MLB record for an Opening Day game. This game also tied for most home runs in a single game.
Joc Pederson and Kike Hernandez both recorded two home runs Thursday afternoon, with homers also from Max Muncy, Cody Bellinger, Austin Barnes, and Corey Seager–who just came back from being sidelined for a full season.
The Dodgers could not have asked for a better start to the season as they try to make another run at a World Series championship.
