Dodgers News: Through the Ups and Downs, Freddie Freeman Likes Where LA is at Right Now

Through all the struggles that the Los Angeles Dodgers have seen this season, they still remain as one of the better teams in Major League Baseball. The team played their final game before the All-Star game, defeating the Angels by a score of 10-5. It was the teams 10th straight win over the Halos and gives them the chance to at worst be one games back of the NL West Division lead when the All-Star festivities begin.

LA holds a record of 51-38 on the season and they went 5-1 over their last six games. They seem to be on a roll right now and are getting back to playing like their normal selves.

Star first baseman Freddie Freeman spoke about this and is happy where the team is right now. 

“We ended on a good note. … The last couple weeks, I really like the way we’ve been playing,” Freeman said. “To finish strong and very hot going into the break is what we envisioned and we were able to accomplish.”


Overall the team has won 12 of their last 17 games and have fought back in the division race. After a very poor month of June, the Dodgers seem to have figured some things out and now look like the team that many believed that they would be.

Even with this season being looked at as a “step back” year, the team is still right in the thick of things playoff wise. It’s a testament to the entire organization and how well built they are.

They have dealt with more injuries than one would like to count and seen multiple players deal with regression from previous seasons but they never let it get them down. The team has battled through it all. Freeman spoke more on the adversity that this team has been through this season.

“I appreciate what we’ve done. We’ve had ups, we’ve had downs and this group came together and I feel like how we responded over the last couple of weeks… we’ve got a pretty special group in here.”


The struggles that this team has seen this season can be looked at as a silver lining. Sometimes adversity can bring a group closer together and it seems that is what is happening with the Dodgers.

They will head off for the All-Star break for some needed rest and then will open the second part of the season with a three game series in New York against the Mets.
