Dodgers Collect Franchise Record 4th Consecutive Walk-Off Win

Another day, another 2019 Dodgers record in the history books.

The last time the Dodgers were home at Dodger Stadium was on Sunday, June 23, where they had just completed a walk-off sweep of the Colorado Rockies in unlikely fashion. 3 rookies on 3 consecutive days smacked walk-off home runs and set an MLB record.

In their first game back at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, they collected their 4th straight walk-off win in quite the opposite fashion. They “walked” it off — literally. Arizona pitching issued 5 straight walks with 2 outs to turn a 4-3 D-Backs lead into a 5-4 Dodgers victory.

Moreover, with that walk-off victory, the 2019 Dodgers etched their names into the history books once again. The 2019 club became the first team in franchise history with 4 straight walk-offs.

It was their 6th walk-off victory in their last 17 home games.

Stats By Stats on Twitter also points out that the Dodgers are the only MLB team in the last 45 years to end a game with 5 consecutive walks.

Elias hits us with fact that the Dodgers are the first team in the live-ball era (since 1920) to draw five consecutive walks to end a game, with no outs occurring at any point during the streak of walks.

Stats By Stats also provided a little more history.

The boys can hit. And the boys can walk.

  1. I must agree, Daniel. The Dodgers showed amazing discipline last night. Bottom of the 9th with 2 outs……walk after walk……Who would have “thunk?” Now THAT was an unbelievable “W.” We literally walked it off. I am still shaking my head and smiling.

    • I will admit that I had my finger on my remote to stop the playback because it looked like a sure end to this game with Dodgers ending up a run short due to already having 2 outs in the inning. If I recall the guy who walked 1st had 2 strikes on him before reaching base with 2 out in the inning.

  2. Time to reflect and take off the rosy colored glasses. It was a great first half agreed ,but right now we have no chance against the Yankees in a WS matchup. None.With Hill almost done for the season,now is the time to trade for Wheeler from the Mets. A short term option as he is a free agent.at the end of the year and won’t cost a lot in prospects.Watched him against the Yankees last night,throws gas and controlled all their right handed hitters. It allows Urias to stay in the bullpen where he is needed most. Kelly in the7th, Baez in the 8th ,Urias or Jansen closing the deal. We need another right hand pitcher if we’re lucky to make it to the WS again and more than likely will face the Yankees heavy hitting right handed lineup. Maeda goes to the bullpen. Wheeler will help alleviate part of the bullpen issues. Are you listening Andrew Friedman or reading these well thought out comments.

  3. It’s time to stop being pushovers and bean the other team back every time they do this. It’s been years of this enough Is enough.
