Good morning, baseball fans!

Last night’s game sure was a fun one, with many highlights and standout performances. But perhaps most notable was Brandon Belt, who went 4-for-5 with two home runs. This pushes Belt close to a milestone he has flirted with, but not yet achieved: a 20 (or more) home run season.

Belt wasn’t just putting on a show for the fans at Citi Field and back home, however.

During the postgame show, Belt (who is generally pretty private about his personal life) shared that he had lost his grandmother yesterday morning. Going on to say that he wanted to dedicate last night’s performance, and the rest of the season, to her.

I’m certain I am not alone in sending my best wishes to the Belt family.
