Former Midwest City product and current Dodgers star Matt Kemp hit a walk-off grand slam to beat the Rockies Sunday afternoon.
It was Kemp’s second home run of the game and his third this year. He’s gotten off to a roaring start with a .383 average, hitting safely in seven straight games at one point. He is yielding no ground to Manny Ramirez when it comes to the spotlight in LA’s outfield.
Kemp’s homer pace is slightly behind what he had last year, but he is on pace for career highs in RBI with 121 and stolen bases with 54. He may not hit those numbers but he’s off to the right start.
