Even when the Dodgers lose, they set records.
Because last night, despite falling to the Braves 5-3 to fall to 75-32—and barely 14 games ahead of the Rockies and Diamondbacks in the NL West—one of those three runs came on Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger 30th homer of the season.
And when Bellinger connected off Atlanta Braves starter Julio Teheran in just his 87th major league game, he became the third-fastest player to reach the mark since 1900.
Only former Detroit Tiger catcher Rudy York (79 games in 1937) and ex-Oakland Athletics first baseman Mark McGwire (84 games in 1987) hit their first 30 home runs in fewer games than Bellinger.
