ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Cody Bellinger’s two-run homer gave Los Angeles the National League record for long balls in a month at 57, and the Dodgers beat the Texas Rangers 7-2. Corey Seager and Will Smith put the Dodgers in position to break Atlanta’s mark of 56 home runs from June 2019 with solo shots in the first and second innings. Bellinger’s 10th of the season came in the third in LA’s final game of August. The Dodgers have won 12 straight series to start the season. That’s tied for the fifth-best season-opening run since 1969.
