WASHINGTON— Any shred of doubt the Dodgers ab­sorbed from their 11-game los­ing streak has been em­phat­i­cally erased.

Af­ter their fourth win in a row, 3-2 over the Na­tional League East-champion Na­tion­als on Satur­day, the Dodgers cranked up the hip-hop in the club­house and spoke ex­cit­edly about be­ing back on track to­ward mak­ing this a mem­o­rable year.

Cody Bellinger hit his 38th homer to match the NL sin­gle­sea­son record for rook­ies, and the Dodgers clinched a se­cond straight se­ries win on the heels of

Astros: LHP Dal­las Keuchel threw six solid in­nings, DH Car­los Bel­tran had three hits and two RBIs and the Astros beat the Mariners 8-6 on Satur­day to drop their magic num­ber to one for clinch­ing the Amer­i­can League West ti­tle. The Astros, who reached 90 wins for the first time since 2004, are seek­ing their first divi­sion crown since 2001, when they won the Na­tional League Cen­tral.

In­di­ans: SS Fran­cisco Lin­dor hit an RBI dou­ble and the In­di­ans bounced back af­ter hav­ing their record win­ning streak stopped at 22, beat­ing the Roy­als 8-4 to clinch at least a tie for the AL Cen­tral ti­tle. Lin­dor’s dou­ble ex­tended his streak of hav­ing an their hor­rific skid.

“You never feel as if doubt creeps in (with) a team this tal­ented, but I guess the way we were go­ing that might have creeped in a lit­tle bit,” man­ager Dave Roberts ac­knowl­edged. “To win a se­ries (against the Gi­ants) in the Bay Area — which we very rarely do — and come here against a very good team, we’re try­ing to get that swag­ger back.” Con­sider it done. Chase Ut­ley had two dou­bles and scored twice to help the Dodgers re­duce their magic num­ber for win­ning the NL West to five. Rich Hill and five re­liev­ers com­bined on a four-hit­ter. ex­tra-base hit to a club-record 10 straight games. The ma­jor­league record is 14 straight, shared by Chip­per Jones (2006) and Paul Waner (1927).

Red Sox: RHP Rick Por­cello took a shutout into the eighth in­ning, OF Mookie Betts hit his 22nd home run and the Red Sox beat the Rays 3-1 for their eighth win in 10 games. The vic­tory re­duced the Red Sox’s magic num­ber for clinch­ing a play­off spot to six and kept its AL East lead over the Yan­kees at three games.

Yan­kees: SS Didi Gre­go­rius and 1B Greg Bird both home­red for the se­cond straight game, rookie LHP Jor­dan Mont­gomery pitched six shutout in­nings and

“You can see the con­vic­tion be­hind ev­ery play, ev­ery swing and ev­ery pitch,” said Hill, who al­lowed one hit in five in­nings and struck out seven. “Ev­ery­body feel good and con­tin­ues to do the work.”

The Dodgers also moved seven games ahead of the Na­tion­als in the race to se­cure home-field ad­van­tage through­out the NL play­offs.

“Home-field ad­van­tage is a plus, but re­gard­less of where you’re play­ing you’ve got to play good,” Roberts said.

In ad­di­tion to his sec­ondin­ning homer, Bellinger drove in a run with his sin­gle in the third. the Yan­kees downed the Ori­oles 9-3 for their fourth win in a row. They also ex­tended their stretch of win­ning sea­sons to 25, the se­cond-long­est streak in ma­jor­league his­tory be­hind their own 39 straight from 1926-64.

Cubs: C Will­son Con­tr­eras was sus­pended for two games and fined an undis­closed amount for what Ma­jor League Base­ball called “in­ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tions” dur­ing the Cubs’ win over the Car­di­nals on Fri­day. Cubs pitcher John Lackey also was fined an undis­closed amount. Con­tr­eras, who ap­pealed the sus­pen­sion, threw down his mask in anger af­ter be­ing ejected for ar­gu­ing a call. It bounced up and hit um­pire Jor­dan Baker’s leg.
