On the Fourth of July, Cody Bellinger made it another event in which he homered. This came after Max Muncy homered into the loge level at Dodger Stadium off Dinelson Lamet to kick off scoring. Hyun-Jin Ryu was once again, unscored upon.
Without question – the home run had some historic significance.
In National League history, only two players under the age of 25 have hit 30+ homers before the All-Star break: Willie Mays in 1954 (31) and the @Dodgers' Cody Bellinger this year.#LABleedsBlue

Los Angeles is now 60-29 on the year, and everything seems to be rolling for the Dodgers. Yet, they haven’t seemed to really play their best baseball yet.
If the Dodgers don’t find a way to win it all this year, they may never again win it all.
