The Dodgers are having a dream season thus far, and the dreamiest weekend of all just passed. L.A. had a rookie hit a walk-off home run on Friday … and on Saturday … and on Sunday. Three different rookies playing hero for a team with plenty of All-Star veterans is pretty amazing. If you’re the Rockies, it’s pretty amazing in the other way. Speaking of amazing, Albert Pujols had one more night in St. Louis, which gave him a legend’s sendoff just in case it’s the last time he ever plays there. And the Pirates staged an amazing rally to sweep the Padres in what was a scintillating Sunday of baseball.

Everyone had to be thinking the same thing when the Dodgers entered the bottom of the ninth inning tied 3-3. But for it to actually happen a third time? Amazing.

As for the Rockies, that’s about as tough of a series sweep as you can imagine. At least the social media team got some good news.

Mike Trout had a front-row seat to a weekend of ovations for a former Best Player in Baseball, his teammate Albert Pujols.

Meanwhile, Pujols and Molina executed a soccer-style jersey swap after the Sunday night game.

And finally, the Pirates had an amazing finish to a series sweep of their own, scoring three runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie the Padres and then four to beat them in the 11th.
