The top seed in the National League and the NL West title have already been secured.
Both of those belong to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Still, the Dodgers continue to reach elite marks.
One thing that isn’t secured yet is the best record in all of baseball.
If the Dodgers clinch that, they’ll have home-field advantage through the World Series, and they have a pretty good chance at sealing that with eight games remaining on the schedule.
Last night, they picked up win No. 107, which ultimately sets a franchise record.
They won 106 games last year and in 2019, but have now eclipsed that mark.

Dodgers Set Elite Mark
It doesn’t seem to matter what scenario you put the Dodgers in.
Yes, they’ve already won the NL West and secured home-field advantage through at least the NLCS, should they get there, but even after all of that, they continue to get better and are gunning for even more than what they already have.
The Dodgers had tied their franchise record in wins last season with 106, yet still were forced to settle for a Wild Card thanks to the unprecedented breakout of the San Francisco Giants.
Of course, that is not the case this year.
The Dodgers have not only secured a division title and the top seed in the NL, but have also set a franchise record in wins.
No Walker Buehler?
This team continues to overcome its obstacles and make themselves look a serious threat to win yet another World Series.
They’ll finish up a three-game set with the San Diego Padres tonight before playing their final six games against the woeful Colorado Rockies.
There’s still time to win some more ballgames.
