The Dodgers’ June home run derby continued Tuesday night with blasts from Joc Pederson, Max Muncy and Yasiel Puig — all off 45-year-old Bartolo Colon — in a 12-5 Interleague series rout of the Rangers at Dodger Stadium. Pederson lined a two-run homer in the second inning for his seventh home run in his last eight games.
Muncy launched a one-out towering solo shot to right field in the third inning, taking the team lead with 13. He’s homered in four consecutive games. And Puig’s home run was a two-run shot in a seven-run fourth inning. The Dodgers have a league-leading 85 home runs this year and have slugged 29 home runs in 10 games this month.
