Dodgers magic number down to 23

From Denver: Rockies 11, Giants 3

From San Diego: Padres 10, Dodgers 7

The Dodgers (75-58) remain 6½ games ahead of the Giants (69-65).

The Dodgers' magic number to clinch the National League West is now 23, shown above by Claude Osteen, who won 147 games in nine seasons with Los Angeles, and had a 0.86 ERA in three World Series starts, including a shutout win in Game 3 of the 1965 World Series.
