This has already been a record-breaking season in so many ways for the Dodgers. With 81 wins and 48 games to go, the Dodgers will likely blow past the franchise-best 105 wins set in 1953. But where they have thrived most has been at home.

At 47-13, this 2017 team is just three wins away from a third consecutive 50-win season at Dodger Stadium. At no point have the Dodgers ever won 50 games at home in three straight seasons.

The Dodgers are actually on pace for more than 60 wins at home, a feat that would pass the 1953 team’s 60-17 record in Brooklyn.

The team has only eight home games in August, beginning with a five-game home stand with the Padres and White Sox. Two teams that the Dodgers have --not surprisingly — won a combined nine of 11 games from.
