Well, it wasn’t necessarily pretty or polished, but the Dodgers did what needed to be done against the San Diego Padres, taking two game out of three and re-extending their lead in the NL West. The Dodgers now lead the division by 3.5 games with 10 games to go in the regular season.
In what was perhaps their most meaningful series so far this season, the Dodgers handled rival San Diego in the three-game set two games to one, re-stretching their division lead to 3-1/2 games. In the process, they were the first major league club to clinch a berth in the 2020 postseason.
