Dodgers clinch NL West in Scully’s fi­nal home game

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

LOS AN­GE­LES » The Los An­ge­les Dodgers clinched their fourth straight NL West ti­tle, win­ning the crown in Vin Scully’s fi­nal home game when Char­lie Cul­ber­son home­red with two outs in the 10th in­ning to beat the Colorado Rock­ies 4-3 Sun­day.

Cul­ber­son hit his first homer of the sea­son and just sixth of his ca­reer off Boone Logan (2-5) and the ball landed in the lower left-field seats, touch­ing off wild cheers and a rau­cous cel­e­bra­tion at home plate. The Dodgers charged out of their dugout and sur­rounded Cul­ber­son, jump­ing up and down. They donned cham­pi­onship T-shirts and hats from carts wheeled on the field.

The Dodgers took off their caps, turned to­ward Scully’s broad­cast­ing booth and held them in a salute to the 88-year-old Hall of Famer, who has just three games at San Fran­cisco next week­end be­fore end­ing his 67-year ca­reer.
