Cody Bellinger produced six runs in the first inning alone and the Los Angeles Dodgers netted 11 in their first round at bat in a 14-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.
The Cards took a 1-0 lead after a long ball from Paul Goldschmidt, but things turned sour when Carlos Martinez came to the mound late in the first set.
Justin Turner leveled the mark with a productive single. Bellinger pushed two teammates home afterward.
After three productive singles that took the score to 7-1, Bellinger was back at bat, still in the first inning. The one who missed several weeks with a fracture hit a grand slam to take the mark to 11-1.
Martinez left the mound after just two strikeouts in that game, but he had already allowed 10 points, as many hits and four walks.
With such a large lead, Walker Buehler evolved without pressure at the Dodgers mound. He allowed three runs in six innings of work.
