Watch: Cody Bellinger crushes 2-run home run, flexes in Game 7
The Milwaukee Brewers’ early lead in Game 7 of the NLCS on Saturday was short-lived.
The Brewers took the lead in the bottom of the first on a solo home run by Christian Yelich. Then in the top of the second, Manny Machado led off with a bunt single and Cody Bellinger followed with a 2-run home run that was demolished into the second deck.

The homer off Milwaukee starter Jhoulys Chacin gave the Los Angeles Dodgers a 2-1 lead and marked Bellinger’s first of the postseason (though he did homer in game 163). He was seen flexing as he went around the bases and headed into the dugout following the homer.
Bellinger also had the walk-off hit in Game 4 of the series on Tuesday night.
The big inning off Chacin led Milwaukee to get Josh Hader warming up in the bullpen.
