The team showed offensive power, with Mookie Betts connected and producing a lot. On defense, they were not as well tuned, but game by game the work was noticeable, and they avoided defeats like the one against the Diamondbacks, a team with whom they lost twice in a row.

By May, they had 20 wins and were looking better every day. Tony Gonsolin did not lose a single game and the offense continued to produce very important victories, such as those they achieved against the visiting Cubs.

They had a small streak where they lost 4 consecutive games, but they recovered and did not let them get into a negative inertia.

A dangerous slump

June began, and this is a dangerous time for many teams because many with positive records begin to lose games and players due to injuries. For the Dodgers, it was no different. They had 12 losses, and people started to talk about a bad streak.

Many specialists said that the first months had been a fluke and that they would not be able to keep up the pace. This affected the team's morale, and even Kershaw suffered his first loss of the season.

Gonsolin was still unstoppable and reached 9 wins, which helped the team's morale. They closed with a couple of wins and played pretty well. July should have been better, which it was.

In July, they only lost three times and had 8 consecutive victories. They enter the most complicated part of the season in a spectacular way and as one of the favorites to win their division and the National League

The best in MLB?

In the National League, they are the best team. 90 wins puts it as the team with the best record. Only the Mets are close, with 83 wins. What is impressive is their record away from home. 41 games won, only the Yankees and the Astros in the American League have more.

The Dodgers are having an exceptional season and are already considered a serious contender to take home the coveted trophy.

But there are tough days ahead, difficult months that if they manage to overcome, they will be a very dangerous opponent for anyone. August and September are always uphill, fatigue begins to take its toll on the squads.

Arriving with a healthy roster and with good rhythm is important to aim for October and the postseason, this is something that the Dodgers have at the moment. They got Clayton Kershaw back from injury and have an inspired Julio Urias.

But will they win the Series?

The opponent to beat according to the specialists is Houston. The Astros team is also playing great baseball, and they have an extraordinary team.

Projections put them as American League winners, ahead of the slumping New York Yankees.

A showdown between these two teams would surely make for an impressive World Series with world-class players. Let's hope for an unforgettable October.

The only thing left to wonder is, will the Dodgers close a spectacular season with a ring?
