USA TODAY Sports activities’ Bob Nightengale breaks down what must occur to steer clear of a MLB participant strike in 2021.

Cody Bellinger is having a greater Saturday than you’re.

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ famous person proper fielder and probably the most front-runners for the Nationwide League MVP award celebrated his 24th birthday in taste, blasting a monster house run at Boston’s Fenway Park. He used to be then greeted at house plate via audible chants of “M-V-P.”

A.J. Pollock, who not too long ago returned from harm, followed Bellinger with a home run blast of his personal to push the Dodgers’ result in 7-2. Los Angeles entered play Saturday with a league-best 60-33 report. 

Bellinger used to be greeted with extra “MVP” chants all through his subsequent at-bat within the 8th inning. He produced a sacrifice fly that driven the result in 10-2.
