After going hitless in a win on Monday, Joc Pederson had his second multi-hit game in the Albuquerque Isotopes last five games on Tuesday.

One of Pederson’s hits was an opposite field home run, which gave him 27 on the season and tied the game in the eighth inning. Heading into play on Wednesday, Pederson is hitting .302 with a .993 OPS.

While Pederson tied the game, the Isotopes surrendered two runs in the ninth inning and lost the game. Including Wednesday, the Isotopes have 19 games remaining this season.

That’s ample time for Pederson to become the first Pacific Coast League player with 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases since 1934. Considered one of the Dodgers’ top prospects, Pederson needs just three more home runs to reach 30 and is four stolen bases shy of swiping 30 bags.

Despite the center fielder’s success, the Isotopes are 11 games under .500 and sitting in third place in the Pacific South division.
