It was the night Dodger fans had been waiting for the last couple of weeks as the Dodgers had their first chance to clinch the NL West title against the Diamondbacks.

The Dodger bats finally woke up last night with the return of Matt Kemp and Hanley Ramirez while getting another solid pitching performance from Zack Greinke.

Tonight, Stephen Fife makes a spot-start as Dodger manager Don Mattingly wanted to get ace Clayton Kershaw some extra rest. Fife hadn’t made a start since early August and his two relief appearances in September haven’t gone well as he gave up seven runs in just five innings.

For the Diamondbacks, Brandon McCarthy is 0-1 with a 4.26 ERA in his only start against the Dodgers this season as he tries to hold off the Dodgers celebration for one more night.

Let’s get to the tweets of the night.
