Max on what it feels like to come from behind, and capitalizing against Sean Newcomb:
“It feels really good. It’s kind of what we have been doing all year, just the attitude we have in the dugout, in the clubhouse, from top to bottom, starting with Doc, all the way to the last guy on our roster. Everyone knows we have a chance to win, no matter what the score is.”
Max Muncy on what it means to him being the first Dodger to have 30+ home-run seasons, since Shawn Green:
“It’s pretty incredible. I really hadn’t thought about it yet, so you’re the first person to tell me about, and it feels really good.”
Muncy on the team’s Major League home-run record in a 5 game span, and how scary this lineup is:
“Very scary. To me, it’s even more impressive, considering we just went and played in Miami, which is not a home-run park, and we were able to do what we did down there, and now we’re here in another big park, but thankfully the ball flies a little better.”
Max Muncy on the lineup hitting 14 back-to-back dingers, and knowing that there is no easy out:
“No, there is not. Like I was just saying, from top to bottom, we all have the attitude that we can go out there and win, and we all have the talent to go out there and prove it.”
The ace Hyun-Jin Ryu is on the bump for Los Angeles tomorrow.
