Cody Bellinger is having one of the best starts in baseball. He’s set the MLB record for home runs hit (14) and total bases (93) before the month of May.

In the Dodgers’ series against the Pittsburgh Pirates, he delivered stellar performances as always. He played a particularly crucial role in Sunday afternoon’s contest, batting in the winning run in the 7-6 win over the Bucs.
Overall, Bellinger went 4-for-9, driving in nearly one-third of the Dodgers total runs scored in the three-game set. No other Dodger had as many RBIs in the series, with Austin Barnes coming in second place with the three RBIs, all scored in game one. Here are his stats for his last three games:
|2 R||4 H||2 HR||5 RBI||9 AB||1 SB||.444 AVG|
Belli also hit two “Belli-Bombs” in the series, earning enough to lead the league with 14 this season.
This is the fifth time Bellinger has been named the Dodgers series top performer, can he go for No. 6 in the upcoming series in San Francisco?
