Puig hit two home runs in the Dodgers' win Friday, including a go-ahead, three-run homer in the ninth inning.

Miami Marlins' Chris O'Grady delivers a pitch during the first inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Sunday, July 16, 2017, in Miami. The game tips off at 1:00 PM EST in Marlins Park, Miami, Florida.

Their 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins completed their 11th series sweep and lifted their record to 64-29, the best mark in baseball. "If you can keep the game closer, that's the most important thing".

Los Angeles leads the majors with a 61-29 record, one game better than Houston and 7 ½ ahead of second-place Arizona in the NL West. The victor of that one game would meet Houston in one Divisional Round while the Red Sox would meet Cleveland in the other. Either way, it's been short on drama.

Cody Bellinger produced what is the 10th cycle in Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers history. Stanton said after the game he got the glove he dropped back. "But we've just got to move on and get to the next series". The Cleveland Indians, who lost to Chicago in the World Series, have experienced some of the same problems, but they are in position for another October run at the top of the AL Central.

Ozuna made a spectacular catch in the sixth when he leaped, placed his right hand on the top of the padding above the fence in left field and robbed Enrique Hernandez of a home run.

Ultimately the long outs didn't matter.

The Dodgers will wrap their three-game set against the Marlins on Sunday afternoon when Rich Hill takes the mound.

"Today's win was a great team win", Hill said. The offense came through. "Every time he steps on the field, something special can happen". "It's a lot of fun to see". Hill made his most recent appearance at Marlins Park last September, when he threw seven ideal innings before Roberts pulled him, mindful the lefty had been sidelined by a blister earlier in the season. He was then removed due to a pitch-count restriction with much ballyhoo. Hill got out of that jam and mostly succeeded in avoiding stressful situations. He didn't walk a batter and struck out nine, two shy of his season high.

"It's really not a surprise", Roberts said.

"Yasiel overreacted", Roberts said. "Some of the best stuff he's had all year". He has 44 strikeouts in 31 innings over that span. Starting pitcher Alex Wood won and improved to 11-0, 10-0 as a starter. Turner's sacrifice fly in the third inning allowed Logan Forsythe to tag up and score the Dodgers' second run. Hill heads into the All-Star break sporting a 3.69 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 70/29 K/BB ratio in 12 starts. Backup catcher A.J. Ellis doubled and scored from third on pinch hitter Ichiro Suzuki's infield single. "It puts him in a good spot in the order, and the results are there".

"Management has solved the riddle of brittle players by stockpiling more talent than the competition, especially pitchers", wrote Ken Gurnick, a Dodgers beat writer for

"They hung in there". "Together with Roberts, they have filled the clubhouse with unselfish talent willing to do what's asked".

"We've been pretty good all year", Turner said.
