The Dodgers still have a long way to go before they are anything close to a contending team, and even have a long way to go before they are even a .500 team. If they don't win every game of their current homestand, the Dodgers will still be under .500 after those 10 games against the Padres, Braves and Diamondbacks.
But for the Dodgers to improve at all they simply have to perform better against the National League West.
No team in baseball has a worse record against their own division than the 6-18 mark by the Dodgers, who have lost six consecutive series to their divisional foes. The only series within the division that the Dodgers have won this season came against the Padres in San Diego, but the Friars returned the favor with a three-game sweep a week later at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers have been outscored 126-77 by their divisional opponents, an average difference of more than two runs per contest.
The Dodgers have hosted each of their NL West foes for one three-game series at Dodger Stadium this season, and they have lost all four series, including sweeps by the Padres and Diamondbacks. Both teams make their second trip to Chavez Ravine during this homestand, and the Dodgers look for revenge.
