- According to Vin Scully, the Dodgers sweep a four-game series against the Padres for the first time.
Ever.At Dodger Stadium. Wow.Still wow.
- The Dodgers start the season with ten straight wins at home, a franchise record.
- Prime Ticket tells us the NL record for consecutive home wins (since 1900) is ten, by the 1918 Giants, the 1970 Cubs and the 1983 Braves,
coachedmanaged by...Joe Torre!
- Vin says the major league record is 12, by the 1911 Tigers (with the 2003 Royals winning 11).
- Even better, the Dodgers won today with half the regular starters on the bench. The under-appreciated (that's right, I said it) Juan Pierre goes 2-for-4 with an RBI, Brad Ausmus goes 1-for-3 and Juan Castro goes 2-for-4.
- Next up, the Diamondbacks come into town for a two-game series. Eric Stults starts tomorrow and Jeff Weaver starts Tuesday. If the Dodgers are to continue making history, the bullpen is going to play a large part!
