The Los Angeles Dodgers posted the best record in Major League Baseball in 2017, registering a 104-58 mark for the season. After going through the Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago Cubs in the postseason, the Dodgers and Houston Astros have provided many great moments for seven games. The Astros had the second-best record in baseball with a 101-61 mark. Down 3-2 to the Astros, the Dodgers pulled out a win in Game 6 to force a Game 7 at Dodger Stadium. We take a look back at the Dodgers’ season in photos, from Opening Day until the playoffs.
