The Dodgers and Rays are currently in the middle of playing Game 1 of the World Series in Arlington. Clayton Kershaw and Tyler Glasnow are squaring off in what is almost certainly going to be one of the best matchups of the series.
Even though both guys came out firing, Cody Bellinger stole the show and the headlines early on. After the Dodgers outfielder launched a 2-run shot off of Glasnow, he had one of the more comical celebrations that we’ve ever seen in a postseason.
No shoulder injury this time! ?

Bellinger just hurt his right shoulder on Sunday evening playing the Braves in the NLCS. He shoulder checked Dodgers teammate Enrique Hernandez after hitting a clutch solo shot that put Los Angeles up for good. Bellinger’s shoulder popped out of place and the medical staff had to out it back. Fortunately, he was able to go out and play defense the following inning.
The Dodgers revealed today that Cody’s shoulder was feeling fine. He would have his shoulder taped up, and they even suggested he could be wearing a brace on that arm during this game. Whatever the case, it did not appear to be an issue.
