After their 6-2 win over the Nationals in five-inning contest cut short by storms, the Los Angeles Dodgers visited President Joe Biden and the White House on Friday morning.

The 2020 World Series Champs presented President Biden with a jersey donning the number 46. Dodger reliever Joe Kelly stole the show on social media rocking the mariachi jacket he traded for a couple of days ago at Dodger Stadium.

It was also announced that Dodger right-hander Trevor Bauer was placed on the seven-day administrative leave by the MLB amid the ongoing allegations.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are on a roll and are looking to take that momentum to our Nation’s Capitol.

After getting no-hit by the Chicago Cubs last Thursday, the Dodgers have gone on a six-game winning streak. They beat the Cubs the remaining three games of that series, and then edged out the San Francisco Giants in two games to gain some spots in the highly contested NL West. The Dodgers now sit at 49-31, 1.5 games out of first, while holding the second-best record in the National League. The San Diego Padres are still close with a record of 49-33, 2.5 games out of first place.
