It helped that the Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves to win their third NL pennant in five years and Bellinger is expected to be ready to play in Game 1 of the 2020 World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday.

To the rest of his teammates, he's like, "No, no, please no more of that".

Bellinger was seen doing shoulder bumps with his teammates and after one of them he came down in some pain as he walked back into the dugout.

Cody Bellinger swung, exhaled and strutted, enjoying for the first time the fruits of newfound playoff patience. It kinda hurt. I'm going to maybe use my left arm (next time).

In his comments, Bellinger was alluding to a play in the 2019 season when he also dislocated his right shoulder.

As for Kike, he told reporters after the game - "Now Belli knows not to mess with people who are way stronger than him!"

Even before dislocating his shoulder, Bellinger's home run celebration attracted notice for its length and exuberance. The Dodgers had trailed 3-2 before Hernandez hit a pinch-hit, solo home run to tie the game. Bellinger had struggled for much of the NLCS, entering that pivotal at-bat only 4-for-24 in the series. Now he's four games away from his first World Series ring.
