The Kids Are Good: Cody Bellinger and Alex Verdugo Crush First Home Runs of Spring

Cody Bellinger

The Dodger’s youngsters put on a power display on Sunday afternoon as the Dodgers defeated the Brewers 10-8 in their second Cactus league game of the exhibition season at Maryvale Park. Future first baseman Cody Bellinger crushed a solo home run to right field over the grassy knoll. This was Bellinger’s first home run of the spring.

Another stud prospect Alex Verdugo (not pictured) followed with a shot of his own in the same frame. Not to be forgotten, utility man Rob Segedin homered as well. His blast carried over the center field wall tying the score in the seventh inning at 8-8.

The Dodgers used a well balanced attack in Sunday’s win as they slugged three home runs and scored 10 runs on 14 hits. Justin Turner opened the scoring with a two-run single in the bottom of the third. Chase Utley followed with a fly ball double that plated two runs.

Scott Van Slyke stroked a two-run single to left in the bottom of the fourth inning. Utley and Ike Davis both had two hits and the Dodgers were 5 for 11 with runners in scoring position. The boys in blue also drew 7 walks. It’s great to see the Dodger offense operating on all cylinders in the early part of the spring.
