The Los Angeles Dodgers are on top of the baseball world and it doesn’t look like their coming down any time soon.
After a slow start to the season, the Dodgers have been on fire lately, going 22-6 in the month of June, including a 10 game win streak. The team has an enigma surrounding them and it has been exciting to watch. The 22 comeback wins, the multiple home runs or the just the winning has been fun to witness.
Both the Colorado Rockies and the Arizona Diamondbacks are now trailing the Dodgers after leading the NL West Division at some point this season. The Dodgers are pulling away in the division after a close three-man race up to this point.
The Rockies are having problems at the wrong time after having a commanding lead of the division. Colorado are 4-7 in the past 10 games and the team’s offense has gone cold and the pitching hasn’t been any better. They now trail the Dodgers by 9.5 games.
The Diamondbacks just got swept by the Dodgers and now trail by 7.5 games in the division.
Everything seems to be going right for the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cody Bellinger has turned into a rookie sensation and looks to be lock for the NL Rookie of the Year Award. He is third place in the NL for most home runs, with a total of 25 bombers. During his hot streak, Bellinger became the fastest player in baseball history to reach the 21 home run-mark.
Alex Wood has emerged into the one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. Wood has the lowest earned run average in all of baseball with a 1.67 ERA and is the first Dodger since Don Newcombe in 1955 to start a season 10-0.
Those two have been having historic seasons for the team but there are even more notable players like Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen, Corey Seager and Justin Turner, who are having amazing seasons themselves.
