Yes, the Los Angeles Dodgers are having that kind of season.

In the sixth inning of the Dodgers' game vs. the host Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, newly acquired D-backs slugger J.D. Martinez hit a shot to right field that looked like it was going to tie the game. But Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig had other ideas, and he preserved the Dodgers' 3-2 lead.

Credit where it's due (begrudgingly) to the best team in baseball. Fortunately, it didn't matter, as Jake Lamb hit a grand slam in the next inning to give the D-backs a lead they would not relinquish.
