Bellinger hits his second homer

Bellinger, baseball's No. 35 overall prospect, was a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate with a pair of homers and a career-high six RBIs.

The 21-year-old has two multi-homer games this season and is hitting .264 with 22 home runs and 63 RBIs through 110 games in his first season at the Double-A level.

Bellinger notches his 6th RBI

Box score

Bellinger concluded a seven-pitch at-bat with a base hit in the second inning, then unleashed his power with a three-run homer in the fourth and ripped a solo blast in the sixth. The game was seemingly already in hand when Bellinger came up again in the seventh, but just for good measure he ripped a single to center and collected two more RBIs.
