Rookie Update-Cody Bellinger

by WCSCBlog

Dodgers’ Rookie Cody Bellinger is on fire and setting records along the way.  He went 3 for 5 with two home runs and four RBI’s in the Dodgers 10-6 win over the Mets.  

That's nine home runs in nine games -- including three two-homer games. Despite spotting the rest of the National League three weeks before he was called up from the minors, the 21-year-old first baseman leads the League in homers and is tied with Logan Morrison for 2nd in the majors behind Judge’s 23. 

Bellinger is now both the fastest to 5 career multi-HR games in MLB history and fastest to 21 career HR in MLB history.  Bellinger reached 21 home runs in only 51 career games.

He's already just the fourth player 21 or younger to have 20 home runs by the All-Star break, joining Eddie Mathews (27 in 1953), Albert Pujols (21 in 2001) and Miguel Cabrera (20 in 2004).
