The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to dominate the National League West as they clinched the division for the seventh straight season on Tuesday.

A 7-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles maintained the Dodgers' stranglehold on the MLB's NL West.

Only the New York Yankees (nine) and Atlanta Braves (14) have won more consecutive division titles.

The Dodgers' offense was powered by Corey Seager, who hit two home runs and tallied five RBIs in the contest. Gavin Lux also sent a solo shot over the outfield wall.

Los Angeles also had 11 strikeouts from right-hander Walker Buehler.

Mason Williams was Baltimore's only player to record multiple hits, as he went two for three at the plate.

The Dodgers are now 94-52 in 2019. The Orioles, meanwhile, are one of the worst teams in baseball with a 46-98 record.

Braves at Phillies
