Dodgers six-game winning streak was snapped, but with Puig’s home run, the Dodgers have now homered in fourteen consecutive games. The last time the Dodgers hit fourteen consecutive home runs was in June of 2001. In June of 1977, the team hit home runs in fifteen consecutive games. That was the team that had four players hit thirty home runs (Garvey, Smith, Cey, Baker) in a season.
The Dodgers .352 average is tied with the Royals for the highest in baseball since June 14.
Cory Seager now boasts an eight-game hitting streak, and not a light one either. Over those eight games, Cory has eighteen hits, including five doubles, and one home run. Cory leads the team in just about every possible offensive category. The last rookie to lead his team in Hits, Home Runs, Doubles, and Runs was HOF shoo-in Albert Pujols in 2001. Hey, before that you have to go back to 1947 and Jackie Robinson.
Kenta Maeda is undefeated in his six starts on the road this year. Maeda is 4-0 with a 2.14 ERA. No June swoon for Kenta. Maeda is 2-1 with a 1.82 ERA in his four June starts.
Dodgers are now seven games back of the Giants after the Giants scored four runs in the bottom of the 7th to wipe out a two-run deficit. Luckily the Dodgers have a 1/2 game lead over the Mets for the first of two wild card spots.
