The Dodgers historic run of 5 walk-off wins had an extra special meaning last night. Not only was Cody Bellinger making history with the 5th consecutive walk-off win for the Dodgers, it marked the first time a team has won a game to sweep a series (albeit only 2 games), with the same exact score by the same exact player at bat in both games.
All that stuff is great and all, but what matters for this team is that it’s a team.
Last week, Yoan Lopez of the Arizona Diamondbacks came in relief with the score tied at 4-4, two outs and one man on base.
Joc Pederson comes up to bat and proceeds to strike out and watch Lopez pound his chest, walking off the mound and even nodding in Joc’s direction.
Cody Bellinger must have been watching because before reaching first base, he was already pounding his chest while looking into the Diamondbacks dugout.
Nothing brings a team together a team more than when you’re best player is backing you up and this 2019 Dodgers is something truly special, so enjoy the show!
