Dodgers' Cody Bellinger goes yard twice against Mets to make history

Dodgers' Cody Bellinger goes yard twice against Mets to make history

What's Next: The Mets play the second of four games against Los Angeles.

Jose Reyes (twice), Jay Bruce and Gavin Cecchini all homered against Kershaw after Wheeler had surrendered seven runs in the first two innings, but it still ended in a fourth loss in five games for the Mets, who fell seven games below.500.

One inning later, Bellinger sent a slider from Wheeler over the center field wall for his second home run in as many innings as the Dodgers raced out to an early 7-0 lead.

Bellinger has now passed Eric Thames to take the NL lead in home runs this season and is tied with Logan Morrison for second-most in the majors, behind Aaron Judge's 23. Matt Garza (3-2, 4.17) is up for Milwaukee and has allowed 15 earned runs in his last four outings, a span of 20 innings.

"When you've got that kind of stuff and you're getting hit like [Wheeler] is getting hit, there is something wrong and we've got to get to the bottom of it", manager Terry Collins said.

The rookie slugger launched two more long balls to set a major league record, and Clayton Kershaw notched his 10th win despite giving up a career-high four homers Monday night as the Los Angeles Dodgers held on for a 10-6 victory over the New York Mets. All that power could be trouble for Pirates starter Gerrit Cole (4-6, 4.54), who has allowed eight homers over his past five starts.

Bellinger isn't the only Dodger putting up startling home run numbers this season - so is the team's ace, Clayton Kershaw.

Vegas Golden Knights hold all the cards in NHL expansion draft
McPhee and Vegas goaltending coach Dave Prior have connections to Neuvirth and Grubauer from drafting them with the Capitals. The fifth-year player, however, won't be ready for the start of the season after having surgery to fix a shoulder injury.

Bellinger's three-run blast highlighted a four-run surge by the Dodgers in the first. Jay Bruce also connected and rookie Gavin Cecchini hit a two-run shot for NY. It still feels like we haven't seen peak Kershaw this year, yet here he is 9-2 with a 2.23 ERA and a 105/16 K/BB ratio in 97 innings.

A dismal start by Zack Wheeler (3-5) put them in a hole that was too big to climb out, the bullen couldn't keep it close and Chase Utley continued to torment the Mets like he did for all those years in Philadelphia. Wheeler's short outing was his second straight start of two innings or less. Zack Wheeler (3-4, 4.48) gets the ball for NY, coming off the worst start of his career vs. the Cubs. It was his 19th home run this season.

Juan Lagares underwent successful surgery today at the Hospital for Special Surgery to fix a fracture in his left thumb.

Up next for the struggling Mets? Kershaw comes in on five days' rest, where he sports a 1.93 ERA this season.

Mets: RHP Robert Gsellman (5-4, 5.50 ERA) is coming off his worst outing of the season, when he yielded seven earned runs on a career-high 11 hits and two walks in five innings against the Nationals in NY.

Dodgers: RHP Brandon McCarthy (5-3, 3.14) has allowed more than two runs in only two of his previous 11 starts. Wheeler will look to improve upon his 4.48 ERA and 1.46 WHIP when he does battle against the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Monday.
