Bellinger ‘not too worried’ about 4-K Game 3 | Posnanski

This was as good a chance as you could expect—Bellinger would get his swings against a depleted right-handed starter who might have been left in to face one batter too many. True, Bellinger was hitless in the World Series, but as he would say, “It just takes one swing to get out of it.”

Bellinger knew exactly what pitch was coming, too. When McCullers faces the big moment, he almost always throws his best pitch, the curveball. He finished Game 7 of the American League Championship Series with 24 consecutive curveballs.

McCullers threw three curveballs to Bellinger. Bellinger expected all three.

His swing looked extremely long last night.

Right as Smoltz was talking about holes in his swing Cody demonstrated by swinging at the pitch down and in, I guess a slider? He didn't have a prayer and it reminded me of Bryce Harper swinging in the exact same way at the exact same pitch when he was struggling badly, so at least Cody is in good company.

Ken Giles can fix anyone's slump.

Bellinger talked after the game about not trying to pull the ball tonight, and he hit doubles the left of 2B. Nice adjustment by the kid.
