Dodgers homer in record 33 straight home games, beat Pirates

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cody Bellinger’s one mighty swing of the bat was loaded with historical significance.

Bellinger hit a two-run homer in the first inning and the Dodgers set a major league record with homers in 33 consecutive home games in a 6-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Bellinger’s blast was noteworthy for other reasons, too. He moved into a tie for the major league lead for home runs with the Milwaukee Brewers’ Christian Yelich at 13 and set the major league record for total bases in the months of March-April with 88. He also set a Dodgers’ record for home runs in March-April, moving past Matt Kemp.

Your periodic reminder that home runs are cheaper than they used to be…..

In this case, I think both things are true.
