Paging the potential NL MVP
Cody Bellinger had a historic season, one that might end up winning him the National League MVP award. Through two games of the 2019 postseason he appears to have reverted back to his previous playoff form. Bellinger is yet to record a hit and is now 0-6 with four strikeouts through two games. It will not be easy for Cody to break out of his slump with Max Scherzer likely to start game three.
If the Dodgers are going to get past the Nationals they are going to need Cody Bellinger to deliver a big hit that sparks the offense on Sunday. Belli will need to avoid pressing and just let the game come to him. The Nationals are going to pitch around him and get him to chase their pitches. All it takes is one big hit and the pressure will be off of Cody Bellinger. Hopefully he gets that big hit in Sunday’s game.
While Bellinger is not the only Dodger in a major slump, he has the most expected of him after his potential MVP season.
