The 2022 Los Angeles Dodgers don’t like to leave things to chance.
While many teams accumulate a lot of one-run wins, the Dodgers try to make sure they establish a sizable gap between themselves and their opponents.
Their relentless offense can score runs against just about any opponent and pitcher, and their pitching staff is prepared to shut down the best lineups night in and night out.
They are a well-oiled machine, in which every single part – the players – understand what it needs to do to achieve collective success.
Getting on base, working the count, avoiding swinging at bad pitches, swinging at the right counts, playing solid defense, executing the right pitches, sequencing…they do it all and do it well.
As a result, the Dodgers have reached an incredible threshold: 110 wins.
“The @Dodgers are the first National League team to win 110 games since the 1909 Pirates. 94 of those 110 wins have come by multiple runs, passing the 1998 Yankees for the most such wins in MLB history,” ESPN Stats & Info tweeted.

The Dodgers Are A Well-Oiled Machine
That tweet has a lot to digest.
First, 110 victories!
That’s an incredible achievement these days; and they still have three games left to play to reach 112 or 113.
However, the most impressive bit of information the tweet contains is the sheer number of runs by more than one run.
Los Angeles has won 94 of their 110 games by more than a single run, which is absolutely insane.
As it was said, they don’t like to leave things to chance: they will score as many times as they can, no matter the score or the foe.
They respect the game and their rivals by playing to the top of their capabilities at all times.
They are MLB’s best club by a mile.NEXT: The Dodgers Ran Away With A 2022 Fan Record
