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:
|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.
