Dodgers top Rockies, clinch win No. 110

LOS ANGELES — It was no secret the Dodgers were going to be one of the best teams in the Major League Baseball this season.

But the 2022 Dodgers have now done something no National League team has done in over 100 years.

With a 6-4 comeback win over the Rockies on Saturday night (Sunday in Manila) at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers picked up their 110th win of the season, becoming the first NL team to reach that mark since the 1909 Pirates, who also won 110 games.

The Dodgers also became just the seventh team in MLB history to reach the 110-win mark, joining the 2001 Mariners (116), 1906 Cubs (116), 1998 Yankees (114), 1954 Cleveland (111), 1927 Yankees (110) and 1909 Pirates (110).

Los Angeles has four games remaining in the regular season.

For most of those wins, the Dodgers used some loud hits. It was their patience that helped them walk their way to another win. Literally.

After being held quiet by Rockies’ left-hander Kyle Freeland, the Dodgers entered the seventh inning trailing 4-1. But the Dodgers quickly took advantage of the Rockies’ bullpen’s inability to throw strikes.

Los Angeles drew five consecutive walks to begin the inning, helping them cut the deficit to one run.

The first ball put in play came on the 31st pitch of the inning, resulting in a Cody Bellinger sacrifice fly to tie the game.

The Dodgers hadn’t drawn at least six walks in an inning since 30 August 2011 against the Padres.

In the eighth, the Dodgers completed their 47th comeback win of the season as Joey Gallo delivered a go-ahead sacrifice fly following a pair of singles from Trea Turner and Freddie Freeman.

Bellinger added an RBI single in the inning, completing his sixth three-hit game of the season.

Meanwhile, Japanese star pitcher and slugger Shohei Ohtani signed a one-year deal worth $30 million to remain with the Los Angeles Angels for the 2023 season, the club announced.

The 28-year-old unique double threat inked the largest-ever MLB deal for a player eligible for arbitration, surpassing the $27 million given to Mookie Betts by the Boston Red Sox in 2020.

Reigning American League Most Valuable Player Ohtani’s deal is fully guaranteed. He remains set to become a free agent after next season.

Ohtani has never gone through the arbitration process with the Angels, avoiding it this time as he did when he signed a two-year deal worth $8.5 million before the 2021 campaign. MLB.COM
