In their last week of regular-season play, the Los Angeles Dodgers went 5-1, picking much-needed momentum heading into the postseason. The week began with the San Francisco Giants in town and the Dodgers dropping the opening game in extra innings.

They then bounced back to not only win the next two games, but also clinch the NL West title. After a day off, the Dodgers finished the season by sweeping the Colorado Rockies.

Manager Don Mattingly will now have to decide which players he would like to include on the 25-man roster and admitted it won’t be an easy task choosing who will make the cut. The Dodgers begin play Friday by hosting the NL Central champions, St. Louis Cardinals.
