2. Cody Bellinger Homers in Game 7

The Dodgers had come back from a 3-1 deficit to force a Game 7 against the Braves, but they needed one more comeback in the game, having come back from a 2-0 deficit and sitting tied in the bottom of the seventh at 3-3.

A year after winning the 2019 NL MVP, Bellinger had struggled during the regular season, hitting just .239 and producing a sub-par OPS of .789. During the postseason, he continued to struggle, and in the NLCS against the Braves, he would get just five hits and strike out nine times.

Despite his struggles, his biggest hit of the series came in the bottom of the seventh with the bases empty and two outs. Bellinger took a ferocious swing at an elevated sinker and sent a no-doubter to right-field, giving the Dodgers the margin of victory and the NL pennant.
