Dodgers 1st to clinch; 8th straight playoff berth

The Dodgers beat the Padres 7-5 on Wednesday to clinch their eighth consecutive postseason berth, marking the third-longest playoff streak in MLB history.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

LH Caleb Ferguson, one of the Dodgers' best relievers this season, has a "pretty good tear" in his UCL. It sounds like he needs Tommy John surgery, but Dave Roberts believes there's still a chance he can try to pitch through it first.


Dodgers 1st team to clinch playoff spot, beat Padres 7-5

The Los Angeles Dodgers became the first team to clinch a playoff spot in the pandemic-shortened season, beating the San Diego Padres 7-5 Wednesday behind Dustin May's gutty effort out of the bullpen and home runs from AJ Pollock and Chris Taylor.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers beat the Padres, 7-5, took 2 of 3 from Petco Park and clinched a playoff spot. Brusdar Graterol served as the opener and Dustin May recorded 16 outs out of the bullpen, a strategy that might repeat itself in October. The Dodgers and Padres, 3 1/2 games apart, will face each other in the NLDS from Texas if they each win their opening three-game series.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers placed OF Joc Pederson on the family medical emergency list, bringing up INF/OF Zach McKinstry to take his place on the roster. RHRP Joe Kelly was activated because he finished serving his suspension and LHRP Caleb Ferguson, who previously underwent an MRI on his elbow, was placed on the IL. Kenley Jansen is unavailable because he has pitched in 3 of the last 4 days.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Doesn't sound as if there's anything physically wrong with Dustin May. The decision to start Brusdar Graterol sounds strategic. May will still pitch at some point; Dodgers manager Dave Roberts won't say when. Possibly Game 3 scenario in October, perhaps.
