Much of Cody Bellinger’s season has been celebrating what he’s been doing on offense, but on Mother’s Day with his own mom, Jennifer Bellinger watching in the stands, Cody showed off his defensive skills with an amazing play.
With Hyun-Jin Ryu throwing 6 innings of no-hit baseball versus the Washington Nationals, their starting pitcher, Stephen Strasburg came up to bat and poked a line drive to right field. The thought was the no-hitter was over, but Cody came running in and gunned a throw to first that barely beat the 6’5 230 lb Nationals pitcher.
