Dodgers rally with five home runs to top Mets

To say the Los Angeles Dodgers are on a roll would be a severe understatement.

And then that big blue machine came storming back.

Five different Dodgers hit home runs as Los Angeles rallied from a three-run deficit to defeat the New York Mets, 7-4, on Saturday afternoon at Citi Field. On Saturday, L.A. became the first club since the 1912 New York Giants (105 years!) to post a mark of 43-7 or better during a 50-game stretch of contests.

Los Angeles set a franchise record for the best 50-game stretch in team history with their 43 win on Saturday.

"Got 'em", Turner said with a smile through his bushy red beard. "It's definitely something that down the road is going to be cool to talk about for a long time". The team has won 23 of its last 26, and that is after it already logged a 10-game winning streak this season. That puts the thundering Dodgers at 46 games above.500 for the first time since they were 98-51 on September 15, 1962. "A lot of guys that are in this room now, were (here) previous year when we fell two games short of the World Series".

Manager Dave Roberts is having the best second season of any manager in recent memory, but his job now is to punctuate a superb regular season with at least a pennant-something the Dodgers haven't won since 1988-and a World Series win. "Other than that, I don't know why we hit so many homers against the Mets".

"I know we hit a lot of home runs", Bellinger said of the barrage. Everyone knows what the goal is, everyone knows what we're trying to do here.

Leadoff man Michael Conforto, Wilmer Flores and Curtis Granderson homered in the first off Dodgers lefty Rich Hill, the NL pitcher of the month for July.

"Just a couple of bad sliders", Lugo said. "We stayed with out approach and luckily we got them".

In Minneapolis, Cole Hamels threw the 16th complete game of his career - his first in almost two years. One out later, Turner singled and Bellinger almost went down to one knee to lift his 31st homer over the right-center fence, tying it at 3. "Both sides of the ball as a team are clicking".

They've done it just about any way you can think of as well.

Puig hit his 21st of the season leading off the seventh against Paul Sewald (0-4), lining a laser shot to left field for his second homer in two games.

Chris Taylor kicked off the sixth inning with a solo shot to left-center, his third consecutive game with a home run as Taylor continues to hit over.416 since the All-Star Break and leads the National League with 33 hits since the Midsummer Classic.

"We're just very confident". He struck out five, three of them looking, induced four weak pop-ups and gave up just one hit. "Unfortunately I missed that, and started in 1926 with Murderer's Row".
