Dodgers Weekly Reviews
A week-by-week look at the Los Angeles Dodgers, including game recaps, transactions, and notable performances from each week.
The Dodgers last week won the National League West, reached 100 wins the fastest ever, set a franchise record for road wins, and swept the rival giants.
The Dodgers won four of six games against the Giants and Padres, behind hot weeks from Freddie Freeman, Justin Turner, and Max Muncy. The Dodgers are in the playoffs for a 10th straight season, and on the precipice of yet another National League West divisional title.
The Dodgers suffered their longest losing streak in three months — all of three games — but still won four of seven games. A handful of pitchers got on and off the injured list carousel, and Justin Turner and Mookie Betts had strong weeks at the plate.
Tyler Anderson continued his stingy ways on the mound, James Outman had a memorable major league debut, and the Dodgers knocked another week off the schedule while widening their lead in the National League West.
Dodgers got swept in San Francisco, saw their offense all but disappear, and had their opening day starter Walker Buehler go down with an elbow injury, expected to miss= a few months.
Clayton Kershaw and Max Muncy suffered serious injuries, and the Dodgers couldn’t catch the Giants in the National League West. But the Dodgers did find their offense and won all six games in the season’s final week, tying a franchise record with 106 victories.
The Dodgers won five of six games last week to pull within a game in the National League West. Max Scherzer continued his brilliant stretch with Los Angeles.
