The Dodgers season is going remarkably well

The Dodgers completed their 54th game of the season on Monday, meaning the season has reached the one-third mark.

At this point, the Dodgers have twice as many wins as they have losses, boasting a record of 36-18. They sit atop the National League West with an eight game lead over the San Diego Padres and are as many as 14 games ahead of the last place San Francisco Giants.

Before the Dodgers start playing in the next third, let’s take a trip down memory lane to revisit the best parts of the season so far, both on the field and off. Of course, this is not a comprehensive list of every amazing thing the Dodgers have done this season (that would be a long article), but rather some fun highlights.

Dodgers smack eight home runs on Opening Day

What a way to start the season. Six Dodgers players combined to hit eight home runs, tying a franchise record of home runs hit in a single game. The Dodgers scored a dozen in their first win of the season.
