In a night the started with such joy, followed by an copious amounts of frustration, ended with the sweet feeling of relief.
The Dodgers were absolutely shut down by Brewers’ starter Jimmy Nelson for eight innings.
Then as the ninth inning came around, Yasmani Grandal treated us to one of his famous bat drop as he mashed a home run over the wall to tie it.
Following Grandal’s act, rookie sensation Cody Bellinger unloaded a huge swing and parked one in the seats that would eventually become the winning run, sealing a 2-1 victory over Milwaukee.
Just goes to show you why Cody Bellinger is the reigning National League Rookie of the Month.
