After a blazing start to their regular season, the LA Dodgers have not been the same lately. With the likes of Freddie Freeman, Cody Bellinger, Mookie Betts, and Clayton Kershaw by their side, the Dodgers are the favorites to win the World Series this year.

From top to bottom, the Dodgers squad is filled with the superstars. At the mound, they have Clayton Kershaw and Tony Gonsolin, while from the plate, they probably have the best lineup in MLB. After signing Freddie Freeman in the 2022 free agency, the Dodgers have strengthened their already strong squad.

It’s just not going to happen in the game of baseball,” Freeman said. “So, when you score zero runs in a game as an offense, you want to get out and score runs early. We did that today… I am just trying to hit the ball to the left center. With the same approaches, I do against everybody…”
