Dodgers News: LA Made Incredible History Following Back-to-Back Shutouts Against Angels

Not only did the Dodgers get back to their winning ways in the two-game sweep over the Angels this week, they made history while doing it.

The Dodgers did not give up a run in the two-game series in Anaheim this week, taking both games by a 2-0 score. This was the first time the Dodgers have recorded back-to-back shutouts this season, and in doing so, tied a long standing record.

According to OptaSTATS on Twitter, this is the 14th season in a row that the Dodgers have pitched a shutout in consecutive games The streak started in 2010 and is just as long as the Yankees streak from the 1950s into the mid-1960s.

Last season the Dodgers recorded shutouts in back-to-back games once. During a three-game series at the end of September the Dodgers shutout the Diamondbacks in consecutive games.

Similar to this year’s streak of back-to-back shutouts, Clayton Kershaw was involved in one of the games that the Diamondbacks were held scoreless.

The Dodgers will look to push their scoreless streak into this weekend’s series when the Astros come into Chavez Ravine.

Rookie Emmett Sheehan will take the mound Friday night and try to continue his own scoreless (and hitless) streak to start his major league career.
