The Arizona Diamondbacks set a new team record with 13 consecutive wins after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. 

The win against the Dodgers completes the D-backs fourth sweep in a row and has helped them all but solidify their place for the top wild-card spot.

Also on Wednesday, the D-backs had a shot at a 75-year-old record for most consecutive innings without trailing an opponent, but that chance ended when the Dodgers went up 1-0 in the first inning. The D-backs' streak ended at 97 innings – the record is 100 innings set by the New York Yankees in 1942. 

The D-backs now head back to Phoenix for a three-game homestand against the San Diego Padres, which begins Friday.
