Blog Kiosk: 8/3/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

This offensive explosion was highlighted by 18 hits and seven Dodger dingers (watch here); including a home run cycle (a solo homer, a 2-run homer, a 3-run homer & grand slam).

“And really for me it’s to be able to get them to focus on today, and the more that they focus on today, it’s going to enhance and brighten their future.”
  • This mornings Baseball America prospect report made note of Dodger infielder Gavin Lux:
Welcome to Double-A Gavin. In his first game with Tulsa, Lux went 3-for-5 with a home run. A .600/.600/1.200 slash line is hard to top.
