The Los Angeles Dodgers sent part of their roster to San Antonio to face the Texas Rangers in a pair of split-squad games as part of the third-annual Big League Weekend at the Alamodome.
With the games being played inside a stadium that’s previously hosted basketball games and rodeos, the outfield dimensions, particularly in right field, were much more friendly to batters than pitchers.
The Dodgers took full advantage of the unusual setting, scoring a combined 22 runs on 31 hits, including 10 home runs, across the two weekend games. Yasiel Puig was the first Dodger to reach the stands with this three-run home run in the first inning Friday night:

With the Dodgers leading the Rangers 8-2 in the third inning, Kiké Hernandez used the short distance in right field to his advantage:
Justin Turner hit the Dodgers’ final home run of the night in the fifth inning:
