Thanks to the recent slide of the New York Yankees, the Los Angeles Dodgers now have the best record in all of baseball and are dominating everybody in their path.
After signing Freddie Freeman, the Dodgers became instant favorites to win another World Series title, just as they did in 2020.
They’re in a good position to potentially do that again.
Last night, they opened up a series against the struggling Milwaukee Brewers at American Family Field.
They had learned of some tough news earlier in the day when it was revealed that Walker Buehler would be out for the rest of the season.
But that didn’t stop Julio Urias, who dominated the Brewers for five innings and led the way as the Dodgers became the first team in all of baseball to reach 80 wins.

80 Wins For The Dodgers
Once again, these Dodgers are at the top of the heap.
Even with all of the injuries they have dealt with, they remain as one of the top teams in all of baseball.
Even more impressive, they’ve picked up their 80th win before they even reached 40 losses on the year.
They expanded their lead in the NL West to 17 games.
They’ve effectively buried the San Diego Padres and the San Francisco Giants.
The new “Evil Empire” resides in Los Angeles now.
This is one of, if not the best team in all of baseball from top to bottom.
The wins keep piling up.
Despite the end of their 12-game winning streak, they remain hot and are showing no signs of slowing down.
The Dodgers are going to be a tough team to deal with come October, which is where they always shine the brightest.
