Dodgers win their division!

The Dodgers only needed one more game to clinch their opportunity to go to the post-season. One game, that's it. But they like keeping things to the wire. So they lost 5 straight.

Last night, while we were playing with my brother and his wife (Dominion), we kept half an eye on the game, a scoreless wonder against the Rockies until the seventh inning where we brought in run after run for a 5-0 victory!

The Dodgers are now the National League West Champions for the second year in a row and 3/4.

They will face the Cardinals Wed-Thur for the first of the 5 game play off.

Some random and entirely unnecessary but celebratory statistics: "The Dodgers have back-to-back first-place finishes for the first time since 1977-78 after already qualifying for postseason play three of the four years that Ned Colletti has been general manager. The last time they advanced three times in a four-year span was 1963-66. Their 94 wins are the most for a Dodgers team since 1988, the last time they won the World Series."
