Dodgers Push MLB’s Third-Longest Road Winning Streak to 15 Games

Aug. 6 (Bloomberg) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 to extend their road winning streak to 15 games, the longest in the National League in 56 years and tied for the third-longest in Major League Baseball history.

Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke allowed two runs over 6 1/3 innings at St. Louis’s Busch Stadium to earn his 100th career victory.

The Dodgers are the first NL team to win 15 consecutive road games since the 1957 Cincinnati Redlegs. The 1984 Detroit Tigers and 1916 New York Giants share the major-league record of 17 road victories in a row.

“We kind of thrive on that us-against-the-stadium type mentality where we really come together as a ball club,” Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis told reporters.

The NL West-leading Dodgers have a major league-best 32-7 record since June 21, when they were 30-42.
