Baseball world reacts to Cody Bellinger’s huge Game 3 home run

Cody Bellinger celebrates home run

Cody Bellinger may have saved the Los Angeles Dodgers’ season with a massive home run on Tuesday night.

The Dodgers entered Game 3 of the NLCS against the Atlanta Braves down 2-0. The Dodgers got out to a 2-0 lead in Game 3 but blew it and fell behind 5-2. They were down to their final five outs of the game and facing a 3-0 deficit in the series.

But then Bellinger gave them life.

Bellinger was facing Luke Jackson with two on and one out in the bottom of the 8th. He jumped on a high 1-2 fastball and sent it over the wall in right center for a tying home run.

What a clutch hit. That was Bellinger’s first homer this postseason, and it could not have been bigger.

Dodger Stadium, which had been quiet, erupted. Fans on Twitter blew up as well with reactions to the huge home run.

The homer undoubtedly gave the Dodgers momentum. The Braves ended up making a pitching change, and it wasn’t long before the Dodgers took the lead. They ended up winning 6-5.

Bellinger batted .165 during a disastrous, injury-filled regular season. The home run might have made up for it all.

Dodgers fans! It’s time to celebrate the World Series championship this great shirt. It makes a great gift for yourself or a friend. You can buy it here.
