Dodgers In The Midst Of Historically Good Run

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the best team in baseball right now. The Dodgers have gone a ridiculous 43-7 in their past 50 games. To put that into historical context, the last team to do that was the 1912 San Francisco Giants. Other notable events in 1912 include Alaska becoming an American territory, the election of Woodrow Wilson and the Titanic sinking. Can the Dodgers continue this absurd pace when they close out their weekend series with the New York Mets on Sunday?

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers are 8-0 SU in their past 8 games against the Mets.
  • The Mets are 2-8 in their past 10 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the past 6 games between the Dodgers and Mets.

Veteran Hyun-Jin Ryu has been overshadowed in the loaded Dodgers rotation but the lefty has put up continually stellar performances. Ryu has posted a 2.60 ERA in his past five starts while striking out a batter per inning. Ryu faced the Mets once already this season, allowing five hits and two runs in 5.0 innings in late June.

Inversely, Mets starter Steven Matz has been struggling over the past month. Matz has an absurd 11.78 ERA while allowing opposing batters to hit .444 across his past five starts dating back to July 9. The southpaw has flashed some skill on occasion, as he held a no-hitter in his last start through the first 4.1 innings of work.
