Bellinger hit a two-run homer to help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 in Game 7 on Saturday night. Last year’s NL Rookie of the Year also singled home the winning run in the 13th inning of a 2-1 victory in Game 4.

The 23-year-old Bellinger opened the playoffs with an 0-for-15 slide and finished with just five hits in the series against Milwaukee. But he certainly made the most of them.

Bellinger’s .200 batting average matches Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. for the lowest by a position player selected MVP of a league championship series — with each coming this postseason in the year of the strikeout. Bellinger and Bradley face off in the World Series beginning Tuesday night at Fenway Park.
