Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger

Los Angeles Dodgers stud rookie Cody Bellinger absolutely owned the fifth inning in Monday’s Game 3 of the NLDS vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks.

In the top half of the inning, Bellinger went the other way for a towering home run, putting his team up 2-0.



One-half inning later, Bellinger used his long arms to reach into the dugout and retire Arizona catcher Jeff Mathis, tumbling in afterwards.

Bellinger had had a relatively quiet series to that point. But he certainly put his stamp on not only the fifth inning, but also the game and series.
