Cody Bellinger laughs off baserunning pants problem

Los Angeles Times

Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger got caught with his pants down Tuesday night. Literally. Bellinger's aggressive and acrobatic slide into third while trying to stretch a three-run double into a triple in the fourth inning of a 16-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays was so jarring that it pushed the belt and waist line of his pants almost to his knees, exposing Bellinger's black sliding shorts. After being called out by third-base umpire Greg Gibson, Bellinger rolled to a sitting position, pointed to his pants and looked at Gibson, who extended a hand and pulled Bellinger up off the ground. Bellinger pulled his pants up, dusted himself off and broke out in laughter as he headed toward the dugout.
