Dodgers could set best 46-game run since 1900 with win

Harry How

The Dodgers have been around for a long time. There's not a lot they haven't accomplished, but they could do something they've never done before with a win on Monday night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are attempting to set a record for the best 46-game stretch in franchise history when they take on the New York Mets at Dodger Stadium on Monday night.

The Dodgers equaled their best 45-game run in team history by beating the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday. Their 37-8 record during that time frame matched stretches in 1899 and 1953, but the team hasn't had a consecutive 38-8 record during the modern era, dating back to 1900.

Ricky Nolasco (8-9, 3.65 ERA) is scheduled to take the hill for the Dodgers at 10:10 p.m. ET. Los Angeles has won five of Nolasco's six starts since acquiring him from the Miami Marlins in early-July, with its lone loss occurring on July 14 against the Colorado Rockies.

During their historic run, which began on June 22, the Dodgers have gone from 9 ½ games back in the National League West to 7 ½ games ahead of the rest of the division entering Monday's slate of games.
