No, it wasn’t a home run. In the end, it was a line drive two-out single off dominant closer Camilo Doval that ended game five effectively on the road in San Francisco.
It was a legacy type base hit for Bellinger in a season that has come full circle. The moment found him, and he answered the bell in hitting a slider into the outfield to drive home Justin Turner and once again send the Dodgers to the NLCS against the Atlanta Braves that will begin on Saturday night.
One of the biggest classics off all-time ends 2-1, with Max Scherzer closing it out for a save.
