Dodgers: Dave Roberts Predicts Los Angeles Will Go On a Hot Streak

Doc is confident the team will catch fire here soon.



Tuesday night was another classic win for the Dodgers. It was one of those wins that felt well rounded, and one that helped define their championship run. They hit well in big situations, put the ball in play with needed, and the pitching dominated. It was everything that fans in Los Angeles have come to expect from their team. 

That win pushed the Dodgers to 24-18 on the year. That comes after a stretch that saw them lose 15 of 20 games. And while they’re still 2 games out of the NL West lead, Los Angeles looks to have found their groove. 

Dave Roberts sounds like he thinks the best is yet to come. Before the win on Tuesday, Doc told the OC Register’s Bill Plunkett that he thinks the team is right on the verge of a hot streak. Tuesday’s win seems to back that up. 

I think we’re going to go on a tear. I don’t think it’s any one player. I think we’ve weathered some things. We still are weathering them. I can’t really say why. I just think we’re going to go on a tear and win a bunch of games.

The bats have come through over the last week or so of games. And for the most part, that’s what was missing from the Dodgers’ success. Health has played a big role in that as well, but they weren’t good situationally. Moving guys over on the basepaths and getting them in was a struggle during the slide.

But if Tuesday was any indication of things to come, the Dodgers are going to be as good as advertised. That doesn’t even take into account that Los Angeles will be getting a few key pieces back that they’ve missed over the last few weeks. 

The NL West better watch out.

      • Yeah, he has the biggest chip on his shoulder after being dissed by the Dodgers. He was fake Wood that under achieved and thought he was “it” next to Kershaw. It’s also pit Zaidi’s pick-ups of low-budget unknowns against AF’s pick-ups. Good stories all around plus this is the real rival series.

  1. Gnats were never going to beat the early April/13-2 Dodgers before all the injuries started pouring on. Dodgers will not be back to full strength in the first series in SF this weekend. Next series at home we should be a lot closer and that will be a better test. Dodger starters are better than the gnats starters, so we still can win the series this weekend without Zach, Corey, Belli and a few others.
