Below are some of the top highlights from the weekend.

Dave Roberts hinted on Friday that Bellinger's stay at the MLB level would be a short-term affair for the moment. With an impressive first weekend with the big league club, though, the 21-year-old just made that decision a bit more difficult. 

Bellinger belted his first career home run on Saturday as part of a two-home-run outburst that helped spark a thrilling comeback. Check out the first of the two solo shots below.
