Cody Bellinger's Chase for .400

Yes it's early in the season, but as we hit the Memorial Day milepost, let's recognize the remarkable start that Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger is having. He is among the leaders in home runs and runs batted in, but most importantly batting average where he is hitting .394 as of this morning. No one has hit .400 since Ted Williams (.406 in 1941 for the Red Sox), though Tony Gwynn (.394 in 1994 for the Padres), George Brett (.390 in 1980 for the Royals) and Rod Carew (.388 in 1977 for the Twins) came closest. How is Bellinger doing it?
