Cody Bellinger robs Fernando Tatis Jr. of home run with amazing catch
Cody Bellinger did it all for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the San Diego Padres in Game 2 of the NLDS at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas on Wednesday night.
Not only did Bellinger hit a solo home run in the fourth to extend his Dodgers’ lead to 4-1 in the game, but he also made a spectacular catch.
Fernando Tatis Jr. was batting in the top of the seventh inning with a runner on second and two outs. His team was down 4-3, and Tatis Jr. lifted a ball to dead center. The ball looked sure to sail out of the park for the go-ahead home run, but Bellinger had other ideas.

What a catch!
By our count, Bellinger was worth about three runs in the game. He hit the home run and saved two runs with that catch.
The Padres trailed 1-0 in the series entering the game, and catches like that won’t help.
