Cody Bellinger's bat helps Cubs edge Pirates 1-0

by Chris Schommer | Cubs Correspondent | Sun, May 19th 8:57am EDT

Cody Bellinger went 2-for-4 with a double and scored the game's only run in the Cubs' 1-0 victory over the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact:

While Bellinger didn't drive in any runs, his ability to get on base and score proved crucial in the tight contest. His season batting average now sits at .264, and while his power numbers are decent, his lack of stolen bases and moderate strikeout rate highlight a need for improvement in those areas. Fantasy managers should appreciate his consistent hit production, but shouldn't expect many steals or a significant boost in batting average. His role as a run-scorer in close games, however, does add some value, especially in formats that reward runs heavily.
