Dodgers keep extending MLB record streaks

The Los Angeles Dodgers are on a roll like never before as they added yet another series win, this one coming in the hands of the San Diego Padres. Sunday’s rubber match win against the Padres marked the 19th straight series win.

The series win streak started in early June and the Dodgers have tallied a 28-5 record since that time, improving to a MLB best 83-34. When you calculate the numbers, they are also on pace to seriously challenge the MLB record 115 wins that was accomplished by the Seattle Mariners in 2001.

This latest Dodgers’ win, a 6-4 win against the Padres, came in Dodger Stadium with the help of home runs by Justin Turner and Yasmani Grandal.

They also extended another record streak on Sunday. It was the 57th straight game that the team tallied two or more extra base hits, now putting the Dodgers well ahead of that old mark of 49 games that was owned by Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig’s 1937 Yankees.

Manager Dave Roberts clearly has his team in a zone and although there is still a long road ahead, if you don’t believe in a team peaking too early, then bet on the Dodgers making it to the World Series.
