MLB wrap: Dodgers win National League West for seventh straight season

The Dodgers continue to dominate the National League West, as they clinched the division for the seventh straight season with a 7-3 victory over the Orioles on Tuesday.

Only the Yankees (9) and Braves (14) have won more consecutive division titles.

Los Angeles’ offense was powered by Corey Seager, who hit two home runs and tallied five RBIs in the contest. Gavin Lux also sent a solo shot over the outfield wall.

The Dodgers got 11 strikeouts from right-hander Walker Buehler, as well.

Mason Williams was Baltimore’s only player to record multiple hits, as he went 2 for 3 at the plate.

The Dodgers are now 94-52 in 2019. The Orioles, meanwhile, are one of the worst teams in baseball with a 46-98 record.

Studs of the Night

Philadelphia’s Corey Dickerson went 2 for 4 and hit two home runs as the Phillies took down the Braves 6-5.

Brett Gardner tallied two home runs and three RBIs in the Yankees’ 12-11 loss to the Tigers.

Dud of the Night

Pete Alonso was hitless and struck out three times in the Mets’ 3-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Highlight

Colorado’s Nolan Arenado made a great play on this ball.

What’s Next?

Braves (90-56) at Phillies (75-69) 7:05 p.m. ET — Philadelphia isn’t far from the playoff picture, and once again beating one of the best teams in MLB could give it the momentum it needs to claim a wild-card spot. Atlanta still has a firm lead in the National League East.
