Majestically merciless are these Dodgers of late.
Los Angeles knocked out an opposing starting pitcher after six outs for the second game in a row, delivering a trio of four-run innings in a 14-5 victory over Toronto.
A.J. Ellis had career highs of four hits and five RBI, two of the latter coming on a booming home run to dead center in the second inning that put the Dodgers ahead – to stay, to say the least.
Toronto had 13 hits of its own, but allowed 21 baserunners while also making five errors.
As was the case Sunday, the Dodgers ended tonight’s game tied for first place, pending the result of Arizona’s game later.
The Dodgers have won four consecutive games after the All-Star Break for the first time since 2007. That year, the streak put the Dodgers 13 games above .500, but the team finished 82-80.
