MLB Postseason Matchups Set

Zoonar/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — It took all 162 games, but the Major League postseason was decided on Sunday as the top 10 teams found out where and when their next games will be. Both the American League and National League Central division titles were also won on Sunday while the final AL Wild Card spot was decided.

David Price tossed seven and one-third innings of shutout baseball, giving up four hits and striking out eight, to give the Detroit Tigers the AL Central crown for the fourth straight year. Ian Kinsler drove in a pair of runs in the 3-0 victory while Joe Nathan picked up his 35th save of the season. The Tigers will travel to AL East Champion Baltimore to begin best-of-five divisional series against the Orioles on Thursday.

The Tigers’ victory means that Kansas City’s first postseason appearance in 29 years will come in the Wild Card round. The Royals will host the Oakland Athletics, who eliminated the Seattle Mariners with a 4-0 win over the Texas Rangers Sunday, in a one-game “play-in” on Tuesday night. The winner of that contest will then travel to Los Angeles to battle the Angels in the divisional round, beginning Thursday.

In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 1-0 after they were already crowned Central division champs. Pittsburgh’s 4-1 loss relegated the Pirates to the Wild Card round where they will host the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday. Whoever advances will then visit the Washington Nationals, winner of the NL East, in the divisional series on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals begin their defense of the NL Pennant on Friday when they travel to NL West champion Los Angeles to battle with the Dodgers.

Kershaw Wins 21st, Dodgers Clinch NL West

Kershaw Wins 21st, Dodgers Clinch NL West

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West title for the second year in a row after a 9-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night.

Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw tossed eight innings, had 11 strike outs, improved to 21-3 and headed right into the clubhouse for the celebration.

“You can’t take lightly what we did,” a soaked Kershaw said. “You got to celebrate accomplishments and that’s what we did. It’s really fun to celebrate with these guys.”

Kershaw hit his first career triple to tie the game at 1-1 in the fifth inning.

“It was tiring,” Kershaw said of his triple. “I don’t want to do that again. It’ll take a double.”

Manager Don Mattingly celebrated a division title as a manager for the second straight year and was proud of his team’s effort all season.

“We want to win a world championship but the first step in that is winning your division,” Mattingly said.

San Francisco’s magic number to clinch a wild card spot went down to one game after the loss.

Kershaw Wins 20th Game, Dodgers Clinch Playoff Spot

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Despite only throwing five innings, Clayton Kershaw picked up his league-leading 20th win of the season as Los Angeles defeated the Chicago Cubs (68-86) 14-5 on Friday. It was the shortest outing in nearly four months for Kershaw (20-3), who was aided by his offense.

“Obviously, you want to go eight or nine every time and be the reason why your team won,” Kershaw said. “But sometimes your team does it for you and you just have to be out there. So that was the way it happened today and I’ll take it.”

The Dodgers hit four home runs as a team, including two from catcher A.J. Ellis. In total, Los Angeles (88-66) racked up 13 hits against Edwin Jackson (6-15) who was making his first start since coming off the disabled list. 

Los Angeles also clinched a playoff spot with Pittsburgh’s 4-2 win over Milwaukee. It’s the second straight season the Dodgers will be in the playoffs as they hold a 3 1/2 game lead over San Francisco in the NL West.

Clayton Kershaw Strikes Out 8, Picks Up 18th Win

Clayton Kershaw Strikes Out 8, Picks Up 18th Win

Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw picked up his 18th win on Monday night after he struck out eight in the Dodgers (82-62) 9-4 win over the Padres (66-77).

Kershaw pitched eight innings and gave up three hits and one run in the victory. He also got Rymer Liriano to strike out in the top of the eighth for the final batter of the night.

“It was a good night for us. There wasn’t a whole lot of stress because we got some runs early — and we haven’t had too many of those,” said Kershaw, who lowered his ERA to 1.67, which is an MLB-best. “Obviously when you get that big of a lead, you just want to pound the zone. I got some good plays defensively behind me.”

Kershaw is 15-1 with six complete games in his last 18 starts.

S.D. Padres Win Third Straight Game In Extra-Innings

iStockphoto(SAN DIEGO) — The San Diego Padres (54-70) edged past the Los Angeles Dodgers (76-60) in 10 innings on Saturday night, 2-1. It’s the first time in franchise history that the Padres have won three consecutive games in extra-innings.

With one out and Will Venable on second base, Padres shortstop Alexi Amarista took the first pitch he saw from Dodgers reliever Jamey Wright and singled home the go-ahead run.

Los Angeles’ Zack Greinke and San Diego’s Ian Kennedy were locked in a pitcher’s duel. Grienke allowed one earned run on four hits in eight innings of work. He struck out eight while walking two. Kennedy gave up one earned run and four hits over seven innings. The right-hander struck out eight and walked three.

Dodgers Ryu Heading to 15-Day DL

Dodgers Ryu Heading to 15-Day DL

Matt King/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — On Friday, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced that they have placed starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 15-day disabled list with two strained muscles in his right buttock. An MRI revealed Grade 1-2 strains of the gluteus medius and piriformis muscles.

The injury occurs on Wednesday after Ryu delivered a 3-2 pitch to Atlanta’s B.J. Upton, walking the Braves outfielder. Almost immediately after delivering the pitch, the southpaw summoned Dodgers trainer Stan Conte. Los Angeles plans to replace Ryu in the rotation with Kevin Correia, whom they acquired last week from the Minnesota Twins.

Manager Don Mattingly is unsure as to when Ryu will return to the team, but is confident that he will pitch again this season. 

“We feel good about this in the sense that it’s not an elbow or a knee. It’s a muscle strain, and it’s going to heal,” said Mattingly.

Ryu was 13-6 on the season with a 3.28 earned run average at the time of the injury. The Dodgers hold a 5 1/2 game lead over San Francisco for the top spot in the South.

Gordon Leads Dodgers Past Braves, 6-4

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(ATLANTA) — Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon scored four times as Los Angeles (70-53) took care of the Atlanta Braves (61-60) on Thursday, 6-4.

With L.A. leading 1-0 in the second inning, Dodgers catcher Drew Butera took the first pitch he saw from Braves starter Aaron Harang (9-7) and sent it over the left-field wall for a two-run home run. Harang allowed five earned runs on seven hits and three walks over 4 1-3 innings of work.

Robert Hernandez (7-8) kept the Braves in check across six innings, giving up just one earned run on three hits and four walks. Kenley Jansen picked up his 34th save of the season.

Braves outfielder Justin Upton left the game in the eighth with a mild left hamstring strain. The team says his status is day-to-day.

Kershaw Wins 11th-Straight Game

Kershaw Wins 11th-Straight Game

Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) — Clayton Kershaw allowed just one run on six hits in eight innings of work, picking up his 11th consecutive win in a 5-1 victory over Milwaukee. The Los Angeles (67-52) southpaw struck out six and walked two in what his manager called a “struggle”.

“It was a struggle for him all day long,” said manager Don Mattingly. “It felt like he was working hard but he kept battling and giving us chances.”

Kershaw (14-2) tied for the league lead in wins while lowering his earned run average to a National League best 1.78. He gave up the lone run in the first inning before watching his offense help avoid a sweep at the hands of the Brewers (65-53).

Adrian Gonzalez tied things up in the top of the third on a sacrifice fly, plating Kershaw, before Matt Kemp drove in the go-ahead run in the fifth. Kershaw even helped himself out, driving in a run in the eighth on a single.
