The D-backs have currently won 6 in a row and 9 out of their last 10 games. They are 14-2 since May 14.
Take a look at the striking difference between the turnaround the Diamondbacks have delivered
(as evidenced by the number and margin of their victories) since the beginning of the season:
Now, contrast that with the same data for the Dodgers
I am no statistician, but the D-backs clearly have a strong trend going while the Dodgers have had a few peaks during specific series this season (ATL/CHC in April, PIT in May).
In fact, the D-backs performance is even more impressive when you note that 6 of the 8 losses the team has suffered since May 5 were by only one run each.
Can we clone Kershaw and get him active for every start? If not, the Dodgers likely have a long road ahead of them if they are going to snap their mediocre performance to-date.
