Dodgers' Enrique Hernandez: Homers in NLDS finale

Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 7-3 extra-inning loss to Washington on Wednesday in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.

Hernandez connected off Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg in the second inning to put the Dodgers up 3-0. Hernandez drew the start in left field Wednesday and finished the series 3-for-7 with a pair of extra-base hits and a walk. The 29-year-old experienced a decline in most of his offensive numbers during the regular season, seeing his OPS drop from 2018's .806 to .715. He still offers positional versatility and occasional pop, but not enough to mitigate the .237 batting average and .304 OBP he posted in 2019.
