Dodgers News: Team Sets Record With 13-Game Road Winning Streak
It’s been a transformation that nobody could see coming, but the Dodgers set a Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers team record with their 13th consecutive road win after their 3-0 win against the Cubs this afternoon.
Yesterday afternoon’s win tied the Dodgers with the team from 1924, then called the Brooklyn Robins, but the Dodgers weren’t satisfied with that mark.
Since the end of June, the Dodgers are now 30-7 after they were buried 9.5 games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks. Road sweeps in Washington D.C. and Toronto set the tone in the second half as the Dodgers have only lost twice since the All-Star break.
Not only are Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez igniting the offense, but role players Jerry Hairston Jr. and Scott Van Slyke have been active in the past two wins in Chicago.
Getting healthy and consistent pitching have been the biggest keys to the Dodgers winning ways, but the threat of Matt Kemp coming back in September makes them an even more dangerous team.
The Dodgers are one of nine teams in baseball to have a road record above .500 as they continue to break Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers record during their incredible stretch of baseball.
