Stat of the Day: Beaty bats everywhere

12:43 AM UTC

MLB.com is keeping track of a Stat of the Day for the Dodgers this season, highlighting a unique, interesting or fun nugget from each game.

May 16: Marlins 3, Dodgers 2 -- Beaty hits everywhere
Matt Beaty hit cleanup in the series finale. Why is that notable? Because the outfielder has now batted in every spot in the order at some point this season. He also continued swinging a hot bat, going 3-for-4 in the loss.

May 15: Dodgers 7, Marlins 0 -- Home sweet home for Bauer
Trevor Bauer struck out 10 and tossed seven scoreless innings in the Dodgers' win over the Marlins, continuing the right-hander's success at his new home ballpark. Bauer is now 3-0 at Dodger Stadium this season and has allowed just two earned runs over 20 combined innings.

May 14: Dodgers 9, Marlins 6 -- Kenley brings the heat
Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen struck out Corey Dickerson on a 96.8 mph pitch in the ninth inning of the win over the Marlins. That was Jansen's fastest strikeout pitch since July 16, 2017, when he struck out Justin Bour on a 97.4 mph pitch.

May 12: Dodgers 7, Mariners 1 -- Bats are alive
With the Dodgers putting up seven runs in the win over the Mariners, the team has scored six runs or more in back-to-back games for the first time since April 15-16. The series sweep against the Mariners was also the first series win for L.A. since it took two of three against the Padres from April 16-18.

May 11: Dodgers 6, Mariners 4 -- Another comeback win
With Gavin Lux hitting a three-run homer in the eighth inning to send the Dodgers past the Mariners, Los Angeles has now completed seven come-from-behind wins this season.

May 9: Angels 2, Dodgers 1 -- Unusual territory
With the Freeway Series loss, the Dodgers have now dropped five consecutive series for the first time since August-September 2017. They lost just one series total in 2020, when they went 43-17. At 18-17, they've already matched last season's loss total.

May 8: Dodgers 14, Angels 11 -- Scoreless Kershaw
Clayton Kershaw tossed five scoreless innings in the Dodgers' 14-11 win over the Angels on Saturday, his 84th career scoreless start. That's the sixth-most by any starter since 1920, behind just Nolan Ryan, Greg Maddux, Roger Clemens, Don Sutton and Tom Seaver.

May 7: Angels 9, Dodgers 2 -- Wake up the bats
The Dodgers' offensive struggles continued on Friday at Angel Stadium. Since April 18, the Dodgers have a .210 team batting average, which is 27th in the Majors. Los Angeles is 4-14 during that span and has seen its record go from 13-2 to 17-16.

May 5: Cubs 6, Dodgers 5 (11 innings) -- Swept away
With Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Cubs at Wrigley Field, the Dodgers were swept for the first time since April 8-11, 2019, against the Cardinals. The Dodgers also dropped to 1-6 in extra-inning games this season.

May 4: Cubs 4, Dodgers 3 (Game 2); Cubs 7, Dodgers 1 (Game 1) -- Forgettable outing for Kersh
Clayton Kershaw allowed four runs over only one inning of work in the Dodgers' Game 1 loss on Tuesday. It was the shortest outing of the future Hall of Famer's career and just the second time he has allowed four or more runs in the first inning of a game. He threw 39 pitches in the frame, the most in a first inning in his career.

May 2: Dodgers 16, Brewers 4 -- A grand ol' time
AJ Pollock and Matt Beaty each hit grand slams, marking the fourth time that the Dodgers hit two grand slams in one game, and the first time since Shawn Green and Adrián Beltré did so on May 21, 2000, against the Marlins.

Mariano Duncan and Pedro Guerrero also did it against the Expos on Aug. 23, 1985. The first time that it happened was Sept. 23, 1901, when the club was known as the Brooklyn Superbas.

May 1: Brewers 6, Dodgers 5 (11 innings) -- Extra extra-inning anniversary
On this date in 1920, the Dodgers and Boston Braves played 26 innings, the longest game in Major League history by number of innings, with the game called tied, 1-1, due to darkness. While the Dodgers used 10 pitchers in their loss on Saturday, Leon Cadore pitched all 26 innings of that game against the Braves. The 26-inning affair took three hours and 50 minutes; by contrast, Saturday's 11-inning game lasted four hours and 48 minutes.
