Watch: Joc Pederson immediately knew he had hit walk-off homer
Joc Pederson sent Los Angeles Dodgers fans home happy on Monday night with an absolute blast of a walk-off home run to win the game 4-3 against the Cincinnati Reds. He completely crushed the homer, and the best part is he knew immediately that it was going out.
Take a look at his reaction as he pointed to the dugout before the ball sailed out of the park:

Pederson’s homer came after David Freese had walked against Reds closer Raisel Iglesias, who has already taken three losses this season. Joc bailed out Kenley Jansen, who allowed the Reds to break the 2-2 tie in the top of the ninth on an RBI single by his ex-teammate, Matt Kemp.
That was Pederson’s seventh home run of the season, and as a walk-off, probably his most enjoyable.
