LOS ANGELES (AP) Joc Pederson let his fist bump with a fan in the front row show just how good he was feeling Monday night.
The outfielder launched two home runs and tracked down a pair of potential extra-base hits on defense as Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Los Angeles Dodgers jumped back into first place in the NL West with an 8-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
"We're playing well right now," said Pederson, who exchanged pleasantries with a fan after running down Drew Butera's drive in the left-field corner. "It's just a good day I guess, you know? We're back in first place. Ryu threw unbelievable and we scored a lot of runs."
