Dodgers' dominance in perspective

With Wednesday's win, the Dodgers are now 71-31. It's the first time since 1974 that they've been 40 games over .500, and it's the earliest date in a season they've reached the mark in franchise history. Their .483 win percentage (29-31) when trailing is better than 13 teams have overall this season. (ESPN Stats & Info)
