By this time next week, the Los Angeles Dodgers may have confirmed their return to NL West supremacy, a year after the San Francisco Giants snatched it from them with an unexpected 107-win season.
But they have a few wins to pick up in order to wrap up the division as soon as possible, starting with today’s rubber game against San Francisco, whose hopes for an NL wild-card spot are on the verge of going from slim to none.
San Francisco took Monday night’s series opener, but Max Muncy, Joey Gallo, and Tyler Anderson ensured there would no second straight upset.
Gallo opened the scoring in the second with a three-run homer, then Muncy added a two-run shot in the third and a solo blast in the sixth to account for all of the Dodgers’ runs.
