That team - led by Don Drysdale, Sandy Koufax and NL MVP Maury Wills - didn't even win the pennant after dropping a best-of-three playoff to rival San Francisco. The last team to do that? His future with the team was cloudy at best, especially with two years remaining on his $36 million contract. It's about maintaining what this team has established over four months now. Since then, the Dodgers have marched to the top of the division and lead by 14 games. It's championship or bust for the Dodgers this year.
Ryu said he had a good command of his pitches. "Their bullpen has been outstanding".
Cody Bellinger's rookie season continues to turn heads. But as they proved in their last two wins against the Mets, they are a team with no visible weaknesses. "But now, and only now, do we get the OK, and so we're going to have a baseball game here tonight, about seven hours later than we should have". His ERA for the season went up to 5.77. They also broke the Major League record for most consecutive games won when leading at any point with 53.
The Dodgers have been churning along at an unprecedented pace all season. "He did one helluva job", said Herzog. "We want to win every day".
With Swift in court, jury selection proceeds in groping case
Mueller's attorney, Gabriel McFarland, argues that Mueller may have been misidentified after someone else touched Swift. In addition to Swift, Mueller named her mother and a member of her team as defendants in the lawsuit.
The Dodgers have made a mockery of the National League West race. "Is it sustainable? I guess it's sustainable".
If things weren't already getting worse for the Mets, they did. "But without Kershaw (who is out several more weeks), it doesn't seem possible to do that". There nearly was an eighth as Herzog's son, David, had his vehicle sucked into an open manhole but made it out alive.
The only solace the Mets can take after losing Sunday night was they won't have to face the Dodgers again until next season.
"It's a good question", Matz said. "We won 16 in a row and Texas won 13 games out of 17 and lost 3 ½ games in the standings".
"Ever since (Clayton) Kershaw was asked if we were just on a hot streak (before the All-Star break) and said "Maybe this is just who we are" that's the attitude we've taken", Wood said.
U.S. power key to countering China in Asia-envoy to Washington
The sanctions resolution targets North Korea's primary exports, including coal, iron, iron ore, lead, lead ore and seafood. North Korea pulled out of the talks in 2009 to protest global condemnation of a long-range rocket launch.
Red Sox 6, White Sox 3: Chris Young hit two homers and tied a career high with five RBIs to help Boston complete a four-game sweep of Chicago.
"And Billy Martin benched Reggie Jackson for the fifth game", said Herzog. "Figure that one out".
Yankees 8, Indians 1: Aaron Judge hit his league-leading 35th homer, and Jacoby Ellsbury hit a tiebreaking three-run triple in the sixth inning and NY salvaged a four-game split with Cleveland.
"As I always said, command is important than velocity", he said.
Anyway, entering Saturday, according to the WPA figures at FanGraphs, Taylor ranked ninth among position players with 3.01 wins and Bellinger ranked 10th with 3.0 wins. Otherwise, there are very few divisional pennant races and he said he was exhausted of hearing about the "knockout game", meaning the one-game playoff in each league to open the postseason. The Dodgers just can't lose right now, as they've put up the best 50 game stretch in the last 105 years. "Both sides of the ball as a team are clicking". They're certainly going to run away with the division barring any monumental collapse.
