The Los Angeles Dodgers won their 100th game on Saturday, the fourth time they’ve hit triple digits in the past five full seasons. Los Angeles did it in 144 games, the fastest to do so since the 2001 Seattle Mariners, who tied the all-time record with 116 wins.

With 96 wins entering Monday, the Houston Astros a sure bet to reach 100 – also for the fourth time since 2017.

The New York Mets (93 wins, 14 remaining) just have to finish .500 to reach the milestone for the first time since 1988, while the Atlanta Braves (91 wins, 16 remaining) will need to go 9-7 to hit 100 for the first time since 2003.
