Corey Seager’s aggressive approach is paying off for Dodgers

LOS ANGELES – On the same day Mookie Betts returned to the Dodgers’ starting lineup, their most dangerous hitter kept plugging away in the No. 5 spot in the batting order. Corey Seager entered a three-game series against the Giants leading the team in batting average (.347), on-base percentage (.396), runs (10) and tied for the club lead in home runs (3).
