Dodgers End Slump And Clinch Postseason Appearance

13 Setiembre 2017

It didn't end until 2:10 a.m. PT Tuesday.

Kelby Tomlinson had a home run off Kershaw for the Giants, who still have a chance to win the three-game series when the clubs face off one more time Wednesday night. For now, they know their opponents, homestands and road trips, and so do we.

A win is win, but it definitely feels good knowing that the Dodgers finally got over that slump and have clinched a spot in the playoffs! Giants fans were already going to root hard against the Dodgers this October, but more is at stake now.

Home Cooking: The new CBA includes four additional off days during the season, and the Giants got all of them at home.

The Giants (57-90) closed within 4-3 against Stripling in the seventh inning on a fielder's choice ground ball by Pence, scoring Span. For an aging team without much depth in recent years, that should be a slight boost. He also made a spectacular play up the middle that ranks as one of his best as a big leaguer.

Kershaw struck out six, giving him 301 in 289 1/3 career innings against the Giants.

Yasiel Puig capped a four-run fourth inning with a two-run double, and Clayton Kershaw combined with three relievers to protect a lead, allowing the Dodgers to snap an 11-game losing streak with a 5-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants.

Bay Bridge Twist: The first half ends with three home games against the A's and the second half kicks off with three in Oakland. "I think it was warranted". It's a nice break from travel, though.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Curtis Granderson will bat leadoff against the San Francisco Giants on Monday. That's just about unprecedented.

First of all, the official scorekeeping rules are dumb.

The Giants have five of them after having just one this season. "We needed this one".

The Superstars: Aside from the usual meetings with Kershaw, Arenado, Goldschmidt, Hector Sanchez, etc., the Giants will host Bryce Harper on April 23, Bryant-Rizzo on July 9 and Jose Altuve on August 6. Oh, and assuming Stanton is still a Marlin, you can try to woo him June 18-20 at AT&T Park.

The Giants have known for months that they won't be.

Tomlinson had been 0-for-14 with six strikeouts against Kershaw in his career before the homer, which was only the third of his career.

For options outside of the organization, I really don't see the Dodgers making too many moves, especially with the 2018-2019 free agency super class coming up.

"A lot of relief in that clubhouse", Roberts said.

Finishing Strong? September doesn't matter this season. 17 games and 16 losses later, the Dodgers have 92 victories, the Nats 88.
