Kenta Maeda had a rough start giving up three runs in the first inning, but righted the ship and
managed to not give up any more and went on to get his 4 th win. Hyun-Jin Ryu went the rest of the way
for an unusual 4 inning save, as the Dodgers took care of the Cardinals 7-3. The hot hand on the offense
these days is Chris Taylor who went 3 for 4 today to raise his batting average to .344 with an OPS of
1.026. Which is outstanding, Taylor has been used all over, primarily a 2 nd baseman he played center
field tonight and is proving to be one of the best pickups the Dodgers have done.

His exit velocity has been on average at 92 mph with a launch angle at 9.10 degrees. This shows
he’s a low line drive or ground ball hitter. Like most high average hitters he sprays the ball to all fields.
He swings at pitches in the strike zone about 69% of the time, making contact with the ball 83% of the
time. This is definitely a breakout year for the 26 year old, who may have found a home with the
CBS Sports baseball scout Jason Rutherford
