TODAYSPORTSTAT-July 10, 2017

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros became the 10th and 11th teams in MLB history to win 60 or more games before the All-Star break. The Dodgers have the Majors best record at the break at 61-29 while the Astros are a half-game back at 60-29.

It was only the second time in baseball history that two teams had 60+ wins before the All-Star Game in the same season. In 1969, the Orioles had 65 wins at the break and the Cubs had 61. The O’s 65 wins before the All-Star Game in ‘69 are the most first half wins of any team in MLB history.

Of the nine teams prior to the Dodgers and Astros to win 60+ in the first half of a season, five made it to the World Series that season with only two (the 1975 Cincinnati Reds and the 1998 New York Yankees) winning the championship that season.
