  • Cleveland Indians Carlos Santana, Jose Ramirez, Bradley Zimmer and Lonnie Chisenhall celebrate after defeating the Minnesota Twins 5-2 during a baseball game on Sunday

Bellinger still has 91 more games to break the record.

Cecchini: Making his first start of the season against a future hall-of-famer, rookie second baseman Gavin Cecchini launched a two-run homer off him in the fifth inning, the first of his six-game big league career.

Kershaw allowed two homers to Jose Reyes, including a two-run drive in the seventh inning. Toronto Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin (55) celebrates his two-run home run off Chicago White Sox starter James Shields during sixth inning American League baseball action in Toronto, Sunday, June 18, 2017.

The fastest to 20 homers in a career, you ask?

"This pace - if you kind of pro-rate these numbers, I mean, that's absurd", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of Bellinger, who has hit a home run every 9.2 at-bats. Following his seven-innings, one-run performance against Texas on June 7, the righty owned a 3.45 and Mets manager Terry Collins called him the team's steadiest starter.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw walks near the mound as New York Mets' Jose Reyes, background left, rounds the bases after hitting a two-run home run during the seventh inning of a baseball game, Monday, June 19, 2017, in Los Angeles. Kershaw struck out 10 and walked one but allowed six runs and six hits in 6 1/3 innings against the Mets. Bellinger followed with his second homer, a solo shot to right center to make it 7-0. Bellinger also drove in four runs. "We just couldn't stop them".

Jacob deGrom had one of the best two-game stretches the Major League Baseball has seen this year and was recognized appropriately, winning NL Player of the Week Honors.

The Dodgers finished with a season-high 17 hits. He is now 3-0 in the month of June with a 1.60 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 28 innings since coming off the disabled list with a lower back strain. Yet again, he surrendered early runs, seven to be exact, in just two innings.

On the flip side, Clayton Kershaw had one of the worst starts of his career, but thanks to the Herculean efforts by Bellinger, Turner and Chris Taylor, he still recorded his MLB-best, 10 win of the season. He hit 12 home runs in 183 career games.

Juan Lagares underwent successful surgery today at the Hospital for Special Surgery to fix a fracture in his left thumb.

There's really no way to sugar-coat it: Gsellman has been struggling this year and probably wouldn't even be in the Mets' top five right now if not for injury. Gonzalez is quietly having a superb season, going 6-1 with a 2.89 ERA.

Mets: RHP Robert Gsellman (5-4, 5.50 ERA) is coming off his worst outing of the season, when he yielded seven earned runs on a career-high 11 hits and two walks in five innings against the Nationals in NY.

Over on the Dodgers' side, they're going with RHP Brandon McCarthy on Tuesday. NY is also 4-1 in Gsellman's last five road starts and the over is 13-2-3 in the Mets' last 18 Tuesday games.
