The Los Angeles Dodgers are heading into the postseason for the ninth straight season.
With a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday combined with losses by the San Diego Padres and Cincinnati Reds, the Dodgers have clinched at least a berth in the 2021 MLB playoffs.
"We did a little champagne toast, said a few words and acknowledged the fact that it's a big accomplishment," L.A. manager Dave Roberts told reporters. "We got a lot of work to do and this is just the beginning."
The squad now must focus on battling the San Francisco Giants for an NL West title. The Giants hold a 2.5-game lead for first place.
