Death. Taxes. The Los Angeles Dodgers clinching the NL West. Those have become the givens in life. Los Angeles defeated the Baltimore Orioles 7-3 on the road on Tuesday night to win the division for the seventh consecutive season. As is tradition, the team celebrates with a little bit of the bubbly in the clubhouse. Most of the time, they are completely wild and jubilant. For the Dodgers, it was a bit tame, considering they've won the same title seven years in a row.
As you saw, there was some alcohol being sprayed, and one Dodger air chugging a bottle of champagne. But you know, nothing wild.
It took a 94-52 record on the 2019 season for Los Angeles to clinch the division. But they have bigger goals on their mind. The Dodgers are looking to return to the World Series for the third consecutive year and this time, to win it.
Now for the remainder of the regular season, the Los Angeles Dodgers will look to clinch home field advantage on the National League side of the MLB Postseason bracket.
