The Los Angeles Dodgers set the National League record for home runs in a month with 57 in August.

Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager and Will Smith each hit homers as the Dodgers beat the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

The Atlanta Braves held the previous record with 56 in June 2019.

Dave Roberts didn't seem interested in an asterisk for the record because the NL is using the designated hitter for the first time in the pandemic-shortened season.

"It's still a record," Roberts said. "It's just a byproduct of swinging at good pitches. I don't know how well the ball is carrying compared to the last couple of years, but it's amazing to see the talent that we have in our lineup."
