The Dodgers couldn’t stop scoring in a 14-1 rout of the Colorado Rockies, but a San Francisco Giants win put their National League West clinching party on hold. The box score is here. The photo gallery is here.

Rich Hill was scratched from Sunday’s start as a precautionary measure; Brandon McCarthy will start instead.

Sunday is Vin Scully’s final game behind the microphone at Dodger Stadium. In his final pre-retirement press conference, Scully discussed the time he was asked to run for governor of California.

Scully’s style touched generations of fans, writes Ryan Kartje. Scully was unique in style and substance, writes Mark Whicker.
