The Los Dodgers began the last month of the regular season by going 4-2. The week started with a clash between the top teams in the National League as the Washington Nationals came to town for a three-game set. The Dodgers dropped two of the three, including Wednesday’s 14-inning marathon.

Next on the schedule was the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Dodgers bounced back by sweeping their NL West foes over the weekend.

With the season nearing its end, the Dodgers expanded their roster and called up a group of prospects to help in their playoff push. Highly touted outfielder Joc Pederson made his Dodger debut over the week and despite struggling at the plate, manager Don Mattingly said he could possibly be included on the postseason roster.
