Juan Uribe hit two home runs for the Dodgers all of last season. The year before he went deep just four times. On Monday night, he hit a solo homer in each of his first three at-bats. Here's the first off Randall Delgado, part of back-to-back homers with Andre Ethier:

Here's the second homer, also off Delgado:

And here's the third, this one off Eury De La Rosa:

My favorite thing about Uribe is that that's not his home run pose. His follow through makes it seem like he thinks he hit a homer every time he makes contact. It's great.

Uribe had a chance for four homers, but in his final at-bat he ... beat out an infield single. Pretty much the exact opposite of a home run. Baseball is weird sometimes.

Eight players have had a three-homer game this season: Uribe, Pablo Sandoval, Josh Reddick, Carlos Gonzalez, Dioner Navarro, Ryan Zimmerman, Miguel Cabrera and Will Middlebrooks. Eight seemed like a lot, but last year there were 12. That's a lot.
