Dodgers Week 27: Extra day, similar result

New, comments
MLB: Colorado Rockies at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The last week for the Dodgers was more than just a week, with a tiebreaker game needed on Monday to decide the division. But the result was the same in the end, with the Dodgers winning the NL West for a sixth year in a row.

The week was a roller coaster ride, with Los Angeles starting the week with a 1½-game lead in the division, then lost two of three to the freefall Diamondbacks. The Dodgers trailed the Rockies in the division by a game starting Saturday, so the sweep in San Francisco was necessary to get to Monday, when the Dodgers held serve at home to win the division.

Batter of the week

This was a close battle, with Kiké Hernandez taking the honors by going 12-for-23 (.522) with three extra-base hits and eight runs scored. He narrowly beat Max Muncy, who finished off his elite hitting season with two more home runs, a team-leading seven RBI and an 1.189 OPS. David Freese continued to mash lefties and was 6-for-11 with a home run and a double.

On the season, Yasmani Grandal won the most batter of the week honors with five. Matt Kemp had four, while Hernandez and Justin Turner had three.

Pitcher of the week

Walker Buehler had the signature game with Monday’s division-clinching gem and made two starts in the final “week” but this award goes to Rich Hill for his seven scoreless innings in Game 162, helping to force the divisional tiebreaker (the 15 runs helped too, but Hill was dominant).

Buehler dominated this award in 2018 with eight selections. Hill and Ross Stripling won four times, while Clayton Kershaw and Hyun-jin Ryu won three each.
