New, 141 comments

The Dodgers tonight start a 12-game homestand against the Reds. They also host the Astros, Tigers, and Angels. It is the Dodgers' ninth homestand of 12 games or longer in the last 20 years. They have a winning record in seven of the eight:

Dates W-L Opponents
May 31 - Jun 13, 2010     
8-5 Ari, Atl, StL, LAA
May 30 - Jun 12, 2005 7-6 ChC, Mil, Det, Min
Jun 14-27, 2002 10-3 LAA, Tor, Bos, Col
Sep 14-28, 2000 9-4 Col, Ari, SD, SF
Aug 25 - Sep 6, 1998 8-4 Mon, NYM, Phi, SF
Jun 27, Jul 10, 1994 8-6 SF, Phi, Mon, NYM
Jun 25 - Jul 12, 1992 12-10 Hou, SD, Phi, Mon, StL
Aug 14-26, 1992 4-9 SF, NYM, ChC, Pit

That 1992 homestand was thanks in part to the riots in Los Angeles which forced the postponement of several games, which were made up in July. They Dodgers played doubleheaders in three straight days against Montreal and four of six days overall.

Fastest To 20

Yesterday, after Matt Kemp hit his 20th home run of the season, the Dodgers tweeted that Kemp was the fastest Dodger ever to reach 20 home runs. By date maybe, but not by team games.
