NL West Standings
After sweeping the Pirates for the first time since 2006, the Dodgers will look to do the same this weekend against a familiar division foe. Tonight at 7:10 PM the Dodgers will be taking on the Giants at Dodger Stadium, with Vicente Padilla facing off against Jonathan Sanchez.
This is the Dodgers final series against the Giants this season. So far they have won 9 of the 15 games between the two teams. The Dodgers magic number entering today is eight, so a combination of eight Dodger wins and Giants losses would clinch the Dodgers 3rd playoff birth in the last four seasons. If the Dodgers hang on to win the NL West it will be the first time they have done so in back-to-back seasons since the 1977-1978 seasons. The magic number to clinch the NL West is 11.
And of course, today is the third anniversary of the 4+1 game. So make sure to celebrate that!
