Bellinger climbing up LAD May Leaderboards

With 2/3 of May in the books, Cody Bellinger is already in the top ten in LAD May leaderboards for home runs and RBI.

At this moment headed into the May 21st game, Bellinger has 22 RBI and 7 home runs in May.

His 7 home runs would put him tied for 4th in LAD history with home runs in May. With 10 being the most, he has a good shot at being the all time LAD May home run hitter. Amazing

You get used to thinking Puig only mashed in 2013 but his May 2014 was also what got everyone excited. Three years now.

Twelve Dodgers are tied in 7th with 22 RBI. Suffice to say, Cody won’t be one of them come the morning of June 1st.

    Holy cow! Amazing.

    • Got to love what he’s done in 76 PA compared to everyone else on the list. Of course that is today, if he does not hit a home run or drive in a run the rest of May he’ll still be on the leaderboard but his PA totals should be over 100.

  2. I should sort this by name and see how many multiple players we got.
    How about James Loney in May, back to back 22 RBI May for Loney.

      This Bellinger kid might make a new record like this every month for awhile.
