The Los Angeles Dodgers last night clinched the National League West division title with a 4-0 defeat of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Los Angeles Times notes that it is "the 20th division title in Dodgers franchise history, and their ninth in the last 10 years."  They accomplished it in "their 141st game, the fastest a Dodgers team had ever done so in a full-length (162-game) season."
