  1. I’m going off on a different subject matter. The Dodgers hit 4-homeruns last night. Does anybody out there know what is the Dodgers record this year is when the team hits a one homerun in a game? I’m going to guess their record when they hit 4-homeruns is excellent i.e. close to undefeated? I know they have won games without hitting a homerun, the other night 2-0 over the Mets.
