But amidst the 17 inning marathon against the San Diego Padres Sunday night, second baseman Chase Utley made it into the Dodgers record books. In the Dodgers 9-5 victory over the Padres, Utley racked up 13 assists to go along with 9 at-bats, according to Dodgers Insider Jon Weisman.

Hopefully the Dodgers can build on the victory Sunday night and Kershaw can continue his dominant start to the season against the cellar-dwelling Reds.
