Joc Pederson hit a solo homer in the Dodgers' World Series Game 6 win over the Astros on Tuesday.

Pederson's opposite-field drive over the left field wall in the bottom of the seventh inning increased the Dodgers' lead to 3-1, giving fatigued closer Kenley Jansen a little more wiggle room for his successful six-out save. Pederson now has three home runs, two doubles, and six RBI in this 2017 World Series after struggling at the plate throughout the regular season.

Joc Pederson is starting in left field and batting sixth in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night against the Astros.

Pederson is 4-for-11 with two doubles and two home runs in the Fall Classic after struggling in the first two rounds of the playoffs. The full lineup for Los Angeles versus Houston right-hander Justin Verlander: Chris Taylor CF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Cody Bellinger 1B, Yasiel Puig RF, Joc Pederson LF, Logan Forsythe 2B, Austin Barnes C, Rich Hill SP.

Joc Pederson hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning Saturday against the Astros in a World Series Game 4 win.

If the Astros weren't already demoralized by the Dodgers pushing across two runs against their closer, Pederson's three-run shot did the job. It was his second homer of the series after collecting just one hit through the Dodgers' first two series this postseason. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts certainly seems to be pushing the right buttons. Pederson is hitting .286/.333/.857 in 14 at-bats overall this October.

Joc Pederson is starting at designated hitter and batting eighth in Saturday's World Series Game 4 against the Astros.

Pederson has now started each of the past three games after starting just once in the Dodgers' first two postseason series combined. In Friday's Game 3, he doubled, walked and scored a run in a loss. He's got three hits in 10 at-bats overall during these playoffs. The rest of the Dodgers joining Pederson behind starter Alex Wood are: Chris Taylor CF; Corey Seager SS; Justin Turner 3B; Cody Bellinger 1B; Yasiel Puig RF; Logan Forsythe 2B; Austin Barnes C; Pederson DH; Enrique Hernandez LF.

Joc Pederson is starting in left field and hitting sixth against Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros in Game 2 of the World Series.

Pederson wasn't in the lineup last night with Dallas Keuchel on the mound for the Astros. The full lineup goes: Chris Taylor CF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Clay Bellinger 1B, Yasiel Puig RF, Pederson LF, Austin Barnes C, Chase Utley 2B, and Rich Hill on the mound.

The Dodgers announced Saturday that Joc Pederson has been added to their playoff roster for the NLCS.

He's taking the place of Pedro Baez. With All-Star shortstop Corey Seager sidelined, the Dodgers needed to add some extra left-handed thump, and that's exactly what Pederson brings to the table. The 25-year-old slashed .212/.331/.407 with 11 homers and 35 RBI in 102 games during the regular season.

Joc Pederson went 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBI as the Dodgers beat the Rockies on Sunday afternoon in Colorado.

Pederson had an RBI double in the fifth inning to extend the Dodgers' lead to 4-0. He then capped off their scoring with another run-scoring double in the seventh. Pederson wraps up a disappointing regular season hitting just .212/.331/.407 with 11 homers and 35 RBI.

Dodgers recalled OF Joc Pederson from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Pederson went 8-for-56 (.143) over his final 14 games with OKC and he is not in the starting lineup for Los Angeles on Tuesday night against the visiting Diamondbacks. The 25-year-old outfielder will probably operate as a bench bet for the Dodgers down the stretch.

Joc Pederson went 8-for-56 (.143) with one homer and one double over 14 games to finish out the regular season with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Ouch. This was after Pederson found himself in a 2-for-41 (.049) funk prior to his demotion on August 19. He's slated to rejoin the Dodgers later this week now that the Triple-A season is over, but look for him to have a diminished role down the stretch.

Joc Pederson has only played left field since being demoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts noted that Chris Taylor has looked more comfortable in center field, whereas Pederson is capable of playing either center or left. Pederson is 4-for-22 at the plate since his demotion and his role with the big club for the rest of the season is very much up in the air.

Dodgers optioned OF Joc Pederson to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

With Friday's addition of Curtis Granderson, the struggling Pederson was squeezed out of his role as the club's primary center fielder against right-handed pitching. The 25-year-old was hitting just .116/.218/.261 with two homers, seven RBI and a 14/6 K/BB ratio over 78 plate appearances in his last 26 games dating back to July 16.

Joc Pederson doubled in a run Wednesday for his first hit since July 28.

He also walked. Pederson, who has been sitting against lefties, was 0-for-21 in the previous 11 days. He's still been very good since his ice-cold start and early DL stint -- he has a .940 OPS in his last 44 games (33 starts) -- but the fantasy value hasn't really been there because of his limited role, modest average and lack of steals.

Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a win over the Marlins on Saturday.

The game was the third in a row, dating back to before the All-Star break, in which Pederson had multiple hits, and he's got an extra-base hit in each of his past four games. It's odd that the 25-year-old has had little success stealing bases after his proficiency on the basepaths in the minors, but at least his offensive game is coming around. Through Saturday, Pederson is hitting .253/.369/.478 overall.

Joc Pederson went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Royals.

Royals starter Ian Kennedy hung a curveball in the second inning, and Pederson deposited it into the right field seats for his ninth homer of the year. Three of those homers have come in his last 10 games. He's on pace for his worst offensive output of his three-year major league career -- partly due to a concussion that cost him nearly three weeks in late May and early June -- with the season's second half still ahead of him.
