Giants at Dodgers — Preview

Dodgers snap losing streak with win over Phillies

A dinosaur threw out the first pitch for the Diamondbacks

Bochy said it was not difficult to watch this one.

On Friday night, the Dodgers clinched their fifth straigth NL West title via a 4-2 win over their rivals.

The Dodgers have a chance now to put their feet up a bit, relax for a few days and look back at a great season.

Trump said the anthem protest was the top reason NFL viewership had waned. Yet the work is far from finished.

The players' union said in a statement that "no man or woman should ever have to choose a job that forces them to surrender their rights".

Matt Davidson and Yoan Moncada homered as Chicago edged Kansas City by getting the final two outs on a dramatic double play in the ninth. Nome plate umpire Bruce Dreckman is at rear.

The Giants are 60-93 on the season and 24-51 on the road, while the Dodgers come in at 97-56 and 52-23 at home. Now, these Los Angeles Dodgers figure they're braced for anything. Still, he's the kind of talent that could help pull the Giants closer in a hurry. It's a natural thing that happens. Bumgarner has faced the Dodgers just once this season, holding them to seven scoreless innings on July 30. The 22-year-old topped the mark set by Wally Berger in 1930 and matched by Frank Robinson in 1956. Bellinger more than picked up the slack, hitting home runs at a historic pace while helping the team rattle off 69 wins in 87 games over the summer.

Mark McGwire holds the record for most runs by a rookie with 49, however, Aaron Judge hit his 46th home run of the season Friday with nine games left on the Yankees schedule.

"He worked very hard to hone our skills and he deserves a lot of credit for that", Cey said.

If the air has settled recently, it is in large part due to the starting pitching.

The Giants took a 1-0 lead three batters into the game on a RBI single by Buster Posey. The Dodgers, on the other hand, will host an NLDS series here at Dodger Stadium. That's when the real battle for this team begins.

For Ethier, it was his second pinch-hit homer since being activated this month. But he also tied a career high with 29 home runs allowed when Bellinger's shot in the third inning soared into the right field pavilion.

Cey said Lasorda was a father figure to the team who worked diligently with his players. That's when it's tough.

Verdict: Does not make the postseason roster. Turner was hit by a pitch Thursday, as well as stomach virus. Jeff Samardzija gave up four earned runs in 4 1/3 innings to take the loss.
