Morning Rewind, 9/30: Dodgers pop the corks after sealing NL West

Cowherd: Kershaw Has a Right Not to Answer Reporters' Questions


By JOHN DORN

After controlling the National League West for most of the year, the Los Angeles Dodgers can finally celebrate.

They took care of business on rival turf in San Francisco, behind stellar pitching from -- who else? -- Clayton Kershaw. The ace hurled a complete-game one-hitter while striking out 13 Giants, walking just one.



Andre Ethier and A.J. Ellis drove in four of the team's eight runs. The team beat up on Madison Bumgarner, who was going for his 19th win on the season, scoring four off the ace in 5.2 innings.

The win sealed the Dodgers third consecutive division crown -- something never accomplished in franchise history. They still have NLDS home field advantage to battle for -- they currently trail the New York Mets by a game.

Dodgers 8, Giants 0


Playoff Races
BOS 10, NYY 4

The Yankees are probably going to lock up the top AL Wild Card spot, but it's taking a bit longer than they've hoped. Another loss at home to the Red Sox keeps their magic number at two.

PHI 4, NYM 3
The Mets know they'll be facing the Dodgers in first game of the NLDS next Friday, they just don't know where. The two teams are still battling for home field, but a Mets loss to the lowly Phillies -- their 60th win of the season -- shrinks New York's advantage to a single game.

CHC 4, CIN 1


The Cubs still have a slight home-field advantage battle going on themselves, though their hopes have dimmed a bit with the season about to wrap up. They trail Pittsburgh by three games -- though its only a slight worry, since they've clinched a playoff berth and they're 43-33 on the road this season, anyway.

TEX 7, DET 6
With less than a week left in the season, it seems like the Rangers have the AL West wrapped up. They hold a two-game lead over Los Angeles, but seem to have all the momentum entering the final few games.

LAA 8, OAK 1


With this win over Oakland -- their seventh straight -- the Angels currently sit in a playoff seed -- the second Wild Card, where they're slated to play a one-game playoff at Yankee Stadium.

SEA 6, HOU 4
The disappointing month of September continues for Houston, as they now fall out of the playoff picture for the first time. Their incredible admirable first half seems to have gone completely cold, and they no longer control their own destiny in the AL.
