Bellinger entered Monday’s game with 19 home runs. Those 19 home runs have come in his first 50 games as a big league player. After he launched two more bombs Monday night off of Zack Wheeler, he sat at 21 home runs and he recorded his FIFTH multi-home run game.
Cody Bellinger is the first player in MLB history with 5 multi-HR games in his first 51 games. Previous fastest to 5 was Mark McGwire (84g)
