With Cody Bellinger leading the Dodger’s this week, he earned himself NL Player of the Week, and the Dodgers’ earned first place in both the NL West and first place in the MLB power rankings. The Dodgers’ are on a tear, as we head into the freeway series to face the not so Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

It’s also important to note that the Dodger’s will play the next 7 games near home and against teams that are below .500. Ideally, this will help the Dodgers create some space between the second place Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies. Rich Hill will take the mound tonight in hopes to continue to bounce back after a tough year. The Dodgers’ lineup will face former Dodger and struggling, Ricky Nolasco with an ERA of 5.23
