Dodgers put the best day record on the line today at noon
The Dodgers are a season-high 13 games over .500 and you can thank their 17 – 8 record during the day for that lofty ranking. A lot is at stake during the day today, the Dodgers day time win % is .680 but the Giants are right behind them at .676. The Giants will also be playing during the day today.
- A.J. Ellis has not scored since May 2nd in 83 at-bats
- Howie Kendrick had his 16 game hitting streak snapped, but looks to start another one today.
- Corey Seager has another hitting streak going on, hitting in his last nine games. That makes 28 of 30 games for Corey as he continues to display amazing consistency for a rookie.
- Justin Turner drove in another run last night and continues to drive in an average of one run per game over his last thirty-nine games.
- Brandon McCarthy has won his first five Dodger decisions, and his looking to become only the 3rd Dodger to win their first six decisions. The other two are Kaz Ishii and Fernando Valenzuela. Fascinating that McCarthy is attempting to do this with a range of games from 04/08/2015 to current.
- The Dodgers are only 2.5 games behind the Giants and are 2.5 games up in the wildcard.
- Kenley Jansen became just the 3rd Dodger closer to record three seasons of at least thirty saves. Gagne and Worrell being the first two.
