The Dodgers managed to lose their third game in a row on Tuesday, but the bats sure did wake up.
Both Chris Taylor and Yasiel Puig launched absolute monster shots off of Diamondbacks’ starting pitcher Zack Godley.
The first home run came from Yasiel Puig, with the Dodgers down 5-0 in the top of the 2nd inning. He destroyed a 2-1 fastball to dead center.
The second home run came from the birthday boy Chris Taylor, who launched his own monster of a home run, this one a two-run shot, scoring Rich Hill from first base and bringing the Dodgers back to within two runs.
Both home runs were measured at 443-feet. The team was unable to mount a comeback after the deep hole that Rich Hill left them in to start the game.
