Cody Bellinger reached the 100 RBI milestone. He’s also the youngest player in franchise history with 40 homers and 100 RBI in a season.
Cody Bellinger is the first Dodger to reach the century mark in RBI since Adrián González knocked in 116 runs in 2014.— Dodger Insider (@DodgerInsider) August 21, 2019

That's the second most in a season in MLB history, behind only the 2017 Orioles (19).#LABleedsBlue

Around the league....
If you’re expecting a shutout from your starting pitcher, don’t expect it to come against the Yankees.
With Gary Sánchez’s 1st inning HR, the @Yankees pass the 2000-2001 @Reds for most consecutive games without being shutout (209).— MLB Stats (@MLBStats) August 21, 2019
