The Los Angeles Dodgers had a couple of recent hiccups but continue to rule the NL West with an iron fist.
The Los Angeles Dodgers stay at home to start their week with a four-game series in Milwaukee beginning on Monday. The Dodgers end the week with a visit to the Colorado Rockies.
The Dodgers have won eight of their last 10 games, with their only hiccups being at the end of their recent series with the Arizona Diamondbacks and the start of their Houston Astros series. But the Dodgers are still comfortably in first place in the NL West, 7.5 games ahead of the second-place San Francisco Giants (25-23). The Diamondbacks have won two straight (22-26) and sit 10.5 games back. The Rockies follow (17-29) in the midst of a two-game losing streak and the San Diego Padres have regained their cellar status at 17-32, and have lost their past three games.
