2018 Topps Now - #362 - Dodgers Blast MLB Record 7 Solo Homers

"That's what we do. We hit homers."

Kiké Hernández is definitely right about that.

They hit seven solo home runs; including two each by Hernandez and Bellinger. Pederson, Muncy and Turner also hit homers.

Yesterday afternoon's longball explosion was a sight to behold, but it was also not too surprising. After all, they've punished the league during the month of June, to the tune of 46 homers, and they currently lead the National League in homers at 102. So, hitting dingers is a skill they excel at.

In honor of this feat Topps has issued a new 2018 Topps Now card for collectors and fans to chase after. As you know, these cards are only available for order directly from Topps online store for only a 24 hour period. So, go here to check it out and order. BTW, this is just the sixth Dodgers' 2018 Topps Now card issued this year. Go here to check out all of my other post on this set. Below is what's written on the reverse of the card.
The Dodgers defeated the Mets on the road thanks to seven solo home runs, tying the single-game record by a team in the Modern Era, since 1990. The Dodgers and Mets also combined for nine home runs today, the most combined home runs in any game this season. Justin Turner capped the historic game off with his 11th inning blast in the 8-7 won. The seven home runs also marked the first time any opponent hit that many home runs against the Mets at home.
UPDATE: This has a final print run of 312.
