Dodgers improve to 11-0 at home, beat Arizona 7-2Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers became the first National League team since 1900 to win their first 11 home games, overcoming an Arizona triple play to beat the Diamondbacks 7-2 Monday night. Manny Ramirez added a homer and three RBIs for L-A.
The defending NL West champions broke the previous league record for longest home winning streak to start a season, set by the 1918 New York Giants and equaled by the 1970 Chicago Cubs and 1983 Atlanta Braves -- who were managed by current Dodgers skipper Joe Torre.
The major league mark is 12, set in 1911 by the Detroit Tigers.
