It’s been a tale of two seasons for the 2013 version of the Dodgers as they were 30-42 towards the end of June, but have now rattled off 38 wins in 46 games.
With a lead of 7.5 games in the NL West and just 3.5 games behind the Braves for the best record in baseball, the Dodgers aren’t just hot, they’re this good.
After sweeping the Rays over the weekend, the Dodgers continued their winning ways with a 4-2 win over the Mets and established a Dodgers franchise record according to their official Twitter account:
At 38-8, you have witnessed the #Dodgers best 46-game run in the modern era (since 1900).

Within this incredible streak, the Dodgers set a franchise record for consecutive road wins and have swept four teams since the All-Star break.
Once 9.5 games behind the Diamondbacks for first place, the Dodgers have seen their bullpen become dominant, a starting rotation that keeps them in the game and a team that believes they can win every single night.
Things won’t get easier as they’ll look to continue their winning ways against Mets ace Matt Harvey, but at this point, it doesn’t matter who they face.
