Cody Bellinger’s MVP Day in Milwaukee


[Box Score]

If Cody Bellinger wins the MVP award after the 2019 season, look back to this game on Easter Sunday as a possible hallmark event.

Bellinger had two RBI singles in the game when he took away a home run from the incumbent Christian Yelich. Of course, after a 5-2 lead evaporated with an Eric Thames home run off Kenley Jansen; Bellinger had more heroics in store.

The unthinkable happened. Bellinger homered off Josh Hader in a 5-5 tie ballgame, and the Dodgers won the game 6-5.

Once again the day belonged to Bellinger, who stole the show with his bat and his glove. The Dodgers took three of four in Milwaukee, and have an off day on Monday.
