Los Angeles Dodgers

After winning two out of three in last week’s series in Phoenix, the Dodgers are now 11-3 against the Diamondbacks this year. However, the Diamondbacks won the series final, 5-3, on a 10-game losing streak against Los Angeles. In that series, the Dodgers took the NL West, leaving them with little to play for in this week’s five-game set, including a doubleheader on Tuesday that was rescheduled from the series that was halted early in the season. When they came into play on Sunday, the Dodgers were eight games ahead of the Mets for the top spot in the National League playoffs.
