Corey Seager (3 HRs), Cody Bellinger (NL-best 22nd) power Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers' home run parade continued Tuesday night.

Rookie Cody Bellinger stayed on a power tear with a two-run shot in the first inning of a 12-0 win over the New York Mets. And teammate Corey Seager matched his career high with three home runs, as the Dodgers upped their HR total to nine in the two games against the Mets.

Bellinger now has 10 home runs in a 10-game stretch. According to Elias Sports Bureau research, he is the first rookie in Major League Baseball history with 10 home runs in a 10-game span and is the first player to do so since Troy Tulowitzki in 2010.

He also is the second Dodger to accomplish the 10-for-10 feat, joining Shawn Green (2002).

"We're having a great time," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "As much as we're excited for Cody, we're playing very good baseball and ready to go tomorrow."

Bellinger, who hit two home runs on Monday night against the Mets, leads the National League with 22 home runs. Along with American League HR leader Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees, this marks the latest into a season, by date, that both leagues have had a rookie as their outright leader in home runs.

Seager, meanwhile, hit a trio of homers in a game for the second time in his career. He also doubled to match his career high with four hits, giving him six RBIs on the night.

He flied out with the bases loaded in the sixth inning in a bid for four home runs.

Tuesday was the fifth multihomer game of his career. The 2016 NL Rookie of the Year has 12 home runs on the season.

"Hitting is contagious," he said. "Everyone's starting to roll. When one guy starts going -- a guy like Bellinger comes in -- everyone's excited, everyone wants to get on base, everyone wants to be the guy."

The hitting even caught on with Seager's older brother Kyle, who hit a game-ending double in the 10th inning for the Seattle Mariners in a 5-4 win over the Detroit Tigers later Tuesday night.

"That's a tough day to match," Kyle Seager said of Corey's three home runs. "I think I'm going to give him the edge today."

Overall, the Dodgers have 27 home runs in their past 10 games.
