The Dodgers have won six straight games, 14 of their last 16 overall, and they will play for six straight series victories tomorrow.
As previously mentioned, Syndergaard started the game and threw what is arguably his best inning as a Dodger and may be his best inning of the year in the first.
A grounder hit at less than 50 mph and two strikeouts, including one by Carlos Correa, gave him a 1-2-3 inning, but more importantly, his 94 mph swing gave the team hope.
The Dodgers' winning streak continued in the first inning when Freddie Freeman singled and Will Smith somehow managed to get his hands in the way to hit his seventh dinger of the year to center for a 2-0 advantage.
Max Muncy, not one to be left out, regained his mojo with his 13th home run of the season, a huge shot to the right for back-to-back jacks and a 3-0 lead.
He did score more runs than before in the third inning, and he did so behind some of the usual suspects. After a Dills single, Muncy overcame a nine-pitch challenge to hit a home run to center field, giving the team a 5-2 advantage.
The good news is that Syndergaard pitched a perfect third inning and two more in the fourth. On the down side, he allowed Jorge Polanco to hit a monster dong, cutting the lead to 5-2.
