The Los Angeles Dodgers redeemed themselves against the Angels on Tuesday night with a 4-0 win.

Behind one of Kenta Maeda’s best starts, if not his best start of the year, there were two moments in the game that were very much highlight worthy.

The first being this unbelievable play from Kiké Hernandez in the fifth inning to rob Angels catcher Martin Maldonado of a base hit.

Luckily it was the catcher running down the first base line, but regardless, the pick on both ends of that play were ridiculous.

Then, in the bottom of the 6th inning, Dave Roberts left Joc Pederson in to face a left-handed reliever with two on and two out, and boy did Pederson reward him. A three-run bomb to dead center field that knocked the wind out of the Angels.

Pederson has had a fire lit under him for the entire month of June and pulling off a home run like this could be a huge confidence boost for when he enters the box against lefties.
