I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the Dodgers aren’t just winning a lot of games, they’re dominating teams from all over the league.
Moreover, they made history once again last night with their 6-4 come from behind win over the Colorado Rockies. They entered the game tied with the 1998 New York Yankees for the most wins by multiple runs in a single season…
Most wins by multiple runs, single season:
2022 Dodgers: 93
1998 Yankees: 93
2001 Mariners: 90

Saturday’s win set their total at 94, breaking the record.
Four games remain this season (all of which are against the Colorado Rockies), meaning the Dodgers could blow that number out of the water when all is said and done.
Along with the historic records, the club is also leading the league in a few other impressive stats as well:
- Most runs this season with 837
- Have given up the fewest runs by a team this season, with 501 runs.
- Highest winning percentage with .696
- Best record with 110-48 (Also most wins by an NL team since 1909).
Additionally, the Dodgers have the highest run differential at +336 through 158 games and are on pace for a +344 run differential. That would put the team at the third highest run differential of all time trailing the 1939 Yankees who had a +411 run differential across 152 games played and the 1927 Yankees team who had +376 across 155 games.
The Dodgers have a +336 run differential
Here are the only teams to finish a season with a run diff that high since 1900:
1939 Yankees: +411 (152 games played)
1927 Yankees: +376 (155)

And finally, one last accolade: The Dodgers are the second team to win at least 105 wins in three straight full seasons, along with the 1942-44 Cardinals, and the only team to win more than 105 in three consecutive full seasons.
Quite impressive right?
While the postseason is the true indicator of a team’s success and talent, the 2022 Los Angeles Dodgers team will go down in history as one of the best to do it. Let’s just hope their dominance in the regular season continues through October until that championship ring is secured.
