First baseman Cody Bellinger went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two strikeouts as the Dodgers blanked the Giants 8-0 on Wednesday.
The Dodger bats had their way with Anthony DeSclafani and the Giants bullpen on Wednesday. Bellinger didn't join the party until the eighth inning when he swatted a John Brebbia pitch to right field, giving him five homers on the season. This has been a lost season for Bellinger due to injuries and inconsistency. He's slashing just .165/.272/.297 to go along with five home runs, 21 RBI, and a pair of stolen bases over 158 at-bats. He's got some time to salvage the year but this is not what fantasy managers that used a first-round pick on him back in spring expected.
