Dodgers Late-Inning Dominance is Insane

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been the class of the MLB this season. They've been flat-out dominant in just about every facet of the game. In fact, the Dodgers have a run differential of plus-94 through 38 games. The second-place team is the Cleveland Indians, at plus-53.

But Los Angeles has truly separated itself in late-game situations. After another walk-off win last night, take a look at what the Dodgers are doing from the seventh inning on in 2020.

Los Angeles has outscored its opponents 70-29 from the seventh inning to the end of the game this season. That's a ridiculous plus-41 run differential. For reference, a run differential of plus-41 would be the fifth-best total in the league this year.

Of course, regular-season dominance is nothing new for the Dodgers, who have made the World Series in two of the last three seasons. They'll have to back it up in the playoffs this time, but this looks like Los Angeles' best chance at capturing its first World Series title since 1988.

The Dodgers are currently the favorites to win it all, with +380 odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
