Dodgers have broken another National League home run record tonight against the San Francisco Giants.
Per the #Dodgers: Bellinger & Seager went back-to-back in the second inning. It was the 17th time the Dodgers have gone back-to-back, setting a new National League record. They are tied w/2016 Orioles for second and one shy of the all-time mark set by the Mariners in 1996.

Slugging Into History
The Dodgers have already broken the National League record for home runs in a season, and for how many players have 10+ home runs. Bellinger and Seager put the Dodgers into the record books again tonight. It’s been a ridiculous season all around MLB for home run records, and the Dodgers have most certainly been one of the teams leading that charge. The baseballs in MLB have clearly gone through a ‘juice cleanse.’ Baseballs are leaving the park at record paces. Thankfully for Dodger fans, the Dodgers have benefited from this more than any team in the NL.
Does Bellinger Have One More Record In Him?
With Cody Bellinger hitting his 47th tonight, he has two (and a half as of this writing) more games to tie Shawn Green’s Dodger record of 49. While the Dodgers may be playing in a pitching friendly park to end the season, the Giants pitching staff isn’t exactly at the top. This is something to keep an eye on.
