Ron Shandler in the new Baseball Forecaster, looking for candidates to dethrone Trout as the first pick in mixed-league snake drafts:

As for Bellinger, after two monster seasons in the past three,
we have to consider that “monsterability” is part of his pro
file.
His consistent teens speed output is at least comparable to Trout
at this point, with possibly higher power upside. But 2019 was his
first full major league season at this level. His player commentary
proclaims “2018 is the early career outlier,” but “outlier” seems
to be a premature label for a player with barely three years of
experience.

Recency bias has its hooks in 2019, and while Bellinger’s
rookie year showed early signs of what was to come, there is a
sedate $22 season mixed in that reminds us of the other possi-
bility. Remember the Skills Ownership corollary: “Once a player
displays a vulnerability, he owns that as well.” It appears that there
is enough here to doubt the viability of Bellinger as the Trout
Dethroner.

In the top of the sixth, "Strasbourg grounded out to right."

Such a shame Ryu didn't get his no-hitter.

Hit his tenth homer last night. The only player on the planet who's hotter than Yelich, but unlike Yelich he did not have a good spring training. Good contact when he made contact (four doubles and four homers among his 12 hits) but he hit .226 and struck out 16 times.
