The Los Angeles Dodgers squashed the Kansas City Royals on Saturday night by a rating of 13-3 and in doing so pressed their existing win streak to 12 video games. That produces the Dodgers’ longest win streak considering that 1976, and they’re another win shy of connecting the franchise record considering that transferring to Los Angeles prior to the 1958 season. 

There’s likewise this: 

In their newest accomplishment, Max Muncy went 4 for 5 with a homer, Mookie Betts struck his 26th of the season, and Joey Gallo struck his 2nd in 7 video games considering that being obtained by means of trade with the New York Yankees. In all, a season-high 6 Dodgers went deep versus Royals pitching. 

More broadly, the Dodgers have actually been entirely dominant of late and on balance throughout the whole 2022 season. Dave Roberts’ club is now 11-0 in August, 19-3 in the 2nd half, and 32-5 considering that July 1. Their plus-251 run differential is tops in all of baseball by a large margin, and they have a comfy six-game lead over the Mets for the very best record in MLB. The Dodgers are likewise now on speed for 114 wins, which would break the franchise record for success in a season (106 in 2021 and 2019). That lofty speed indicates the 2022 Dodgers likewise have a genuine chance at breaking the all-time record for wins in a season – 116 by the 2001 Mariners. That L.A. is making such a push without Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler and with a banged-up bullpen makes it even more remarkable. It’s no stretch to state this year’s Dodger design might end up on the short-list of finest groups in the record of the video game. 

Looking ahead, on Sunday versus Kansas City the Dodgers will aim to extend their win streak to 13 video games and protect their 4th straight series sweep. After that comes a four-game roadway series versus the Milwaukee Brewers.
