In light of Major League Baseball making every game from 2018 and 2019 available for free on MLB.TV, DodgerBlue.com has ranked the best streaming options for contests involving the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The list begins with No. 10 from the 2018 season, when the Dodgers slugged a season-high seven home runs in a back-and-forth 8-7 victory to complete a series sweep of the New York Mets at Citi Field on June 24. L.A. finished one shy of matching the single-game franchise record.
They entered the contest undefeated all-time whenever hitting at least six home runs, but needed a seventh from Justin Turner in the 12th inning to ensure that would remain intact.
Kiké Hernandez and Max Muncy opened the game with back-to-back home runs, and Hernandez later tied the game in the sixth inning with his second blast. That gave him 12 home runs on the season, setting a new career high.
Cody Bellinger also twice left the yard, doing so in the fourth and eighth innings, and pulled even with Muncy for the team lead with 15 home runs. Joc Pederson’s go-ahead homer in the seventh game him 10 on the year, with nine of those coming in June.
After Kevin Plawecki tied the game in the bottom of the eighth inning with a three-run shot, the teams remained even as the game went into extra innings. That changed when Turner put his former team away for good with a game-winning home run to left field with two outs in the 11th.
That helped the Dodgers secure a 12th consecutive win over the Mets and gave them a third game at Citi Field with at least five home runs — the most by any club. It also ran the Dodgers’ total to an MLB-best 46 homers during June.
They went on to set a new franchise record for most home runs in a calendar month (55), which had previously been the 53 that were hit in June of 2017.
