LA Dodgers Officially Clinch NL Home Field Advantage

The Braves lose and the Dodgers reap the victory!

With the Atlanta Braves falling by a score of 9-6 in Kansas City, the Los Angeles Dodgers officially clinched home field advantage through the National League Championship Series.

The Dodgers are en route to picking up win number 101 on the season with a 5-3 lead in San Diego. With 5 games left, New York and Houston still stand above Cody Bellinger and the boys in by 2 full games for home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Veteran catcher Russell Martin already admitted that the club is more focused on other loose ends over pulling out all the stops to gain the best record in baseball.

Namely health.

Moreover, in other good news for Los Angeles, Rich Hill made a big stride in his attempt to make the NLDS roster.

Now with the National League firmly in their pockets, the Dodgers look at teams they may face in the Division Series round starting October 3rd. The Chicago Cubs are hanging by a thread and can reasonably be counted out. That leaves the winner of the Wild Card play-in game as the last piece to the puzzle ahead of the date listed above.

The Milwaukee Brewers have a magic number of 1 to secure postseason play against the Washington Nationals, who secured a playoff berth on Tuesday night. Against Bryce Harper and the Phillies…

Please can postseason play get here already?
