MIAMI (AP) — Cody Bellinger became the first rookie in Dodgers history to hit for the cycle when he tripled in the seventh inning Saturday against the Miami Marlins.

Bellinger singled in the first inning, hit a two-run homer in the third and added an RBI double in the fourth. His second career triple barely cleared the glove of right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, who tried to making a running backhanded catch.

With the first four-hit game of his career, Bellinger became the third Dodger to hit for the cycle since the team moved to Los Angeles, and the first since Orlando Hudson on April 13, 2009. Bellinger is the ninth player in the franchise's 128-year history to hit for the cycle.
