Cody Bellinger first Dodgers rookie to hit for cycle

August 26, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: nexmcumgj.

first_imgMIAMI >> Giancarlo Stanton stands 6 feet, 6 inches tall. The Miami Marlins’ right fielder is bigger than most baseball players, with the wingspan of a pteranodon. When he reaches, the world bends slightly in his direction.Stanton reached for a Cody Bellinger fly ball in the seventh inning Saturday, but not even he could prevent a small slice of history from falling to Earth. The ball cleared Stanton’s glove by a few inches and rolled to the wall. Bellinger glided into third base with a triple — becoming the first rookie in the history of the Dodgers’ century-old franchise to hit for the cycle.Bellinger also singled in the first inning, hit a two-run homer in the third inning and doubled in the fourth inning of the Dodgers’ 7-1 win at Marlins Park. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error He became the ninth Dodger to hit for the cycle, and only the third since the team moved to L.A. in 1958 — and, at 22 years and two days, the seventh-youngest to cycle for any team.In less than three months, Bellinger has gone from a non-40-man roster player to the National League leader in home runs.“This past week,” he said, “is probably the top of everything.”Bellinger has been in Miami since Monday, when he reached the semifinals of the Home Run Derby. On Tuesday he played in the All-Star Game. Thursday, he celebrated his birthday. Saturday he upstaged Alex Wood’s six shutout innings and Yasmani Grandal’s three-run home run, the other linchpins of the Dodgers’ latest victory.The Dodgers have won 28 of their past 32 games. The last time they did that, according to ESPN Stats and Info, was 1899. Will they ever lose a game again?center_img “I would say at some point in time,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “I just don’t see anyone compete as much as we do. It’s not taking away anything from anyone else, but I think that our club for 27 outs competes harder than anyone. When you have the talent we have and the compete that we have, every single night, we’re going to win a lot of games.”This game carried little suspense. Marlins starter Jose Urena (7-4) unraveled in the third inning of a 0-0 game by allowing five runs. Three came on the home run by Grandal, his 12th of the season and his 10th as a left-handed hitter. Two came on the home run by Bellinger, his 26th of the season. He and Cincinnati Reds slugger Joey Votto are tied for the NL lead.The Dodgers scored twice more. Bellinger’s 16th double of the season drove in Justin Turner to provide a 6-0 lead. After his historic triple — his second this season — Bellinger tagged up and scored on a Logan Forsythe sacrifice fly.Miami rallied for three hits against reliever Pedro Baez with two outs in the seventh inning to score its only run.Wood (11-0) walked one batter and struck out four. He is the first Dodgers pitcher to begin a season with 11 consecutive wins since at least 1913, and hasn’t lost a game since May 30, 2016.“It’s been kind of a crazy ride,” Wood said. “I’m trying to keep it all in perspective.”The Marlins could scarcely get the ball in the air against Wood’s superlative sinker. Only one of his 18 outs came on a fly ball to the outfield. Four came via strikeouts. The rest, a steady stream of grounders.“Any time your team wins a game, a lot goes into it,’’ said Wood. “I feel like every time I go out and pitch, we score five, six, seven runs. It definitely takes the pressure off early. … We’re just clicking on all cylinders.”The night belonged to Bellinger, whose four hits also set a career high. He is the fifth player to hit for a cycle this season, and the first Dodger since Orlando Hudson on Opening Day of the 2009 season.Wes Parker (in 1970) is the only other Dodger to achieve the feat since the franchise moved to Los Angeles.Bellinger said his parents have already amassed a small fortune of souvenir baseballs in a short amount of time: his first two home runs, his first double, his first RBI.“First something else,” he said. “A lot of firsts.”If Clay and Jennifer Bellinger have any room left in their Chandler, Ariz., home, Saturday’s game ball will join the collection of historic trinkets. For his part, Cody Bellinger has no apparent interest in indexing the tangible reminders of his greatness. Next to Saturday’s game ball, sitting on the chair by his locker, Bellinger noticed he’d gained a folded-up piece of paper.“Whatever this is — tickets? I haven’t really looked yet,” Bellinger said.His disinterest in each milestone is genuine, Roberts said.“Where we slated him at the start of the season, and the impact that he’s made, I don’t think that was expected, obviously,” Roberts said. “But the great thing about Cody is, he doesn’t get too far out of each moment. At the end of this season it’ll be great for him to look back at what he accomplished and what we accomplished as a team. That old saying: You’re never as good as they say you are and you’re never as bad. Cody just has really good perspective on things. It’s a wave that he’s never been on, but he’s enjoying the ride.”last_img read more
