The Dodgers continued their September swoon with three straight losses in Philadelphia, but recovered to win three of their final four games of the week. In doing so, the Dodgers clinched their fifth consecutive National League West division title.

Batter of the week

Yasmani Grandal had three hits last week but made them count, with two home runs and a double. He was the sixth member to join the Dodgers’ 20-homer club, and he drove in all three runs in Sunday’s win over the Giants.

Pitcher of the week

Rich Hill struck out nine in six innings, allowing just one run in the division clincher on Friday against San Francisco.
