WATCH: Dodgers’ Joc Pederson blasts two home runs on his birthday

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson turned 27 on Sunday. He also blasted two home runs to help his team pull ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Pederson opened up Sunday’s game with a solo shot in the first inning. It was the second year in a row in which he homered on his birthday.

Then, in the fourth inning, Pederson was at it again with a laser-beam shot to right field that barely got off the ground but somehow still cleared the fence.

This game isn’t yet halfway over, but it’s clear that the baseball gods are favoring Pederson in a big way already. He might not be done yet.
