The Dodgers got into a 3-0 hole yesterday early with the Mets hitting Rich Hill for three solo home runs. But Hill hung in there a little bit and limited the damage; striking out eight over five innings.
But then the Dodgers took the game over. Cody Bellinger, Chris Taylor, Yasiel Puig and finally Corey Seager all homered.
Here’s Corey Seager’s 19th home run of the season off Fernando Salas. A monster home run to the upper reaches of Citi Field.
And the Dodgers well, they’ve matched the best 50-game run in MLB history since 1912 at 43 wins, 7 losses in their last 50. It began the day we were there to see them beat the Nationals on June 7th 2-1. Lookie at this:
Yes, this is the best Dodgers team ever. Will that reputation be too much pressure? The Dodgers of 2017 seem built for pressure.
