The 2014 second-round pick ripped a double to left field on the first pitch he saw from Fresno starter Mike Hauschild, and then lined a ground-rule double to right to lead off the sixth. Verdugo poked a single to left in the seventh and led off the ninth with a six-pitch walk. It marked the first time this season he reached base in a game.
Verdugo went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBIs in the Dodgers' 9-3 win over Sacramento on Wednesday. The left-handed hitter has hit safely in 16 of his last 17 games.
