Post-Game 161 Thread: Greinke Clinches Home-Field Advantage for Dodgers


Xack Greinke gave up one run over eight innings and held the Padres in check, allowing the Dodgers' two runs to hold up for the series-winning victory. What's more, with the Mets getting no-hit in the second game of a two-game, two-loss doubleheader, the Dodgers secured home-field advantage for the NLDS. At the start of the weekend, the Dodgers needed four of the six remaining outcomes to go our way in order to secure home field. We went 4-for-4, so tomorrow can be rest day before Friday's home playoff opener.

Justin Turner had a solo HR in the first, and Adrian Gonzalez GIDPd but scored Howie Kendrick from third (in the fourth inning). Kenley Jansen notched his 36th save with a one-hit ninth.

Yasiel Puig, activated from the DL, went 1-for-3 with a single in the second inning.

Rest up boys; you've earned it!
