Los Angeles Dodgers

After taking two of three in last week’s series in Phoenix, the Dodgers are now 11-3 against the Diamondbacks this year. The Diamondbacks, however, won the series finale, 5-3, to snap a 10-game hitting streak against Los Angeles. In that series, the Dodgers clinched the NL West, leaving them with little to play for in this week’s five-game series, including a rescheduled Tuesday doubleheader from the lockout-cancelled early-season series . Entering Sunday’s play, the Dodgers were eight games up on the Mets for the top seed in the National League playoffs.
