What a weekend for the Dodgers. They welcome the Giants into Los Angeles out of the All-Star break on Thursday, and they ran through them for 4 consecutive games. Even with the up-and-down nature of a few of those games, they managed to take the series sweep, the first time they did that in 4 games against the Giants since the early 90s.
But those wins also put them into pretty rare territory. The Dodgers won 106 games in 2019 and 2021. Both of those years were the highest number of wins during the regular season in franchise history. And as of Monday morning, they’re on pace to shatter that record.
Those 4 wins put them at a .681 winning percentage for the year, the best in the National League. It also set them up for a 110-win pace for the season, which would break the franchise record by 4 wins. That would be a pretty incredible accomplishment.
The MLB record for single-season wins is 116, set by the Seattle Mariners in 2001. They would go on to lose to the Yankees in the American League Championship Series. Dodgers fans are hoping that a big winnings season like this will end much differently.
And they could absolutely pull of a 110-win season. The Dodgers are cruising right now, and they could potentially add in some really big names before October rolls around. That includes guys like Walker Buehler, Blake Treinen, Edwin Rios, and Dustin May.
