Dodgers Clinch NL West, Home-Field Advantage

Posted on: October 5, 2009

The Los Angeles Dodgers have clinched the National League West division and home-field advantage throughout the 2009 MLB playoffs. With their 5-0 win over the Colorado Rockies Saturday Night, the Dodgers were finally able to clinch their division for the 11th time. They had been on a five-game losing streak. This is the second straight season the Dodgers have won the NL West and their 94 wins are the most by a Dodgers team since 1988. Last season, they swept the Chicago Cubs in the National League Division Series before losing in five games to Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series. This season, they are set to play the St. Louis Cardinals in the best-of-five division series. After the game, the team partied in the clubhouse and went back out to the field to acknowledge the year-long support of the Dodger fans. The Dodgers have played in 18 World Series, winning 6. This year’s team plans to make it 7. “We’re going to take it to another level,” promised Manny Ramirez.
