Dodgers Win Seventh Consecutive NL West Title

Jonathan Grant | September 11th, 2019

The fact that the Los Angeles Dodgers would win the NL West again this season was never really in doubt. It was merely a matter of timing, such has been their dominance. On Tuesday night, they confirmed their division victory, their seventh in a row, in a 7-3 win over the helpless and hapless Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. Walker Buehler got them off to the kind of start they would have wanted by tossing seven innings and giving up no runs.

In fact, the pitcher had a four-run lead before he even took the mound, courtesy of Cody Bellinger driving in a run via a single and a three-run homer from Corey Seager. Two innings later, Seager hit a two-run shot to extend the lead to 6-0 and it was virtually over from there, as the Orioles are one of the worst teams in the history of baseball and mounted no serious comeback. The Dodgers clinched the division by virtue of the win, which now has them an incredible 18.5 up on Arizona. There is still more to play for the Dodgers, though, as they must confirm home-field advantage for the playoffs by retaining their top spot record-wise. Lastly, the crown makes them one of just three teams in history- joining the Braves and Yankees- to have won the division that many times consecutively.
