SAN DIEGO (AP) — In his first game back from a knee injury Johnny Pesky Jersey , Rene Rivera was big trouble for his old team.Rivera hit a go-ahead homer in the ninth inning after a long stay on the disabled list, and the Los Angeles Angels completed a three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres with a 3-2 victory Wednesday night.Reinstated from the 60-day DL before the game, Rivera connected for a solo shot into the second deck in left field against San Diego closer Kirby Yates (4-1). The former Padres catcher had missed 76 games with right knee inflammation.“It’s awesome to come back after three months and help the team to win a game,” Rivera said. “First, I’m glad to be back and have an opportunity to play, and winning the game today is great.”Yates, who took over as closer when Brad Hand was traded to Cleveland, had allowed only two earned runs in 21 innings pitched at Petco Park this season.“I just threw a good pitch, and he hit it,” Yates said. “Just come back tomorrow and get back at it.”After the Angels sent starting catcher Martin Maldonado to Houston at the July 31 trade deadline, Rivera will have an opportunity to contribute more.“We just brought him back and knew he had to get his timing down,” manager Mike Scioscia said. “To jump right in like that, that’s a huge home run obviously.”Jose Alvarez (5-3) pitched a scoreless eighth to earn the win for the Angels, their seventh in nine games. The sweep was Los Angeles’ sixth of the season.Blake Parker retired the side in the ninth for his 12th save.Cory Spangenberg erased an Angels lead in the seventh with a solo home run that tied the game at 2.Andrelton Simmons singled home David Fletcher in the sixth to put Los Angeles in front 2-1.Both teams scored in the first inning. Albert Pujols drove in Kole Calhoun, who led off the game with a single, with a sacrifice fly against Padres lefty Robbie Erlin.San Diego answered with a sacrifice fly from Hunter Renfroe that brought home Travis Jankowski.Felix Pena pitched six solid innings for the Angels http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-carl-yastrzemski-jersey , allowing one unearned run on two hits while walking four and striking out seven.“I think Felix did a great job,” Scioscia said. “He kept getting better as the game went on. The only fly in the ointment is four walks, but he stepped up.”Erlin and Pena traded scoreless innings until the sixth, when Simmons broke through for Los Angeles.“He pitched great,” Rivera said of Pena. “He kept the ball down and elevated when he wanted to elevate. He was keeping the hitters off balance and did a good job today.”Shohei Ohtani pinch-hit in the ninth and struck out swinging against Yates.TRAINER’S ROOMAngels: Ohtani threw at full strength in his second bullpen session since injuring his right elbow in June. The two-way rookie star from Japan said his arm felt good and he was able to throw all his pitches. “I did throw 100 percent effort, but obviously it is going to be different from a game situation,” Ohtani said through a translator. “I can’t say for sure until I see how my body feels tomorrow.”ROSTER MOVESThe Angels optioned RHP Odrisamer Despaigne and C Jose Briceno to Triple-A Salt Lake, and designated RHP Akeel Morris for assignment.UP NEXTAngels: Open a four-game series in Texas on Thursday. The club had not yet announced a starting pitcher. RHP Ariel Jurado (2-2, 5.66 ERA) will take the mound for the Rangers.Padres: RHP Jacob Nix (1-0) makes his second start in the majors Thursday against Arizona, looking to follow up a debut in which he threw six scoreless innings. RHP Clay Buchholz (5-2, 2.67) goes for the Diamondbacks. LOS ANGELES (AP) — What a day for Walker Buehler. The rookie with the preternatural calm pitched the Los Angeles Dodgers to a record sixth consecutive NL West title. Buehler tossed one-hit ball into the seventh inning, and Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy launched two-run homers to beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 in a tiebreaker on Monday.“It’s a normal baseball game. It’s hyped up, there’s an adrenaline, but you got to execute,” Buehler said. “That’s all you can do.”The defending NL champion Dodgers became the first major league team to win six straight division crowns since the Yankees captured nine AL East titles in a row from 1998-2006.“It doesn’t get old,” confirmed ace Clayton Kershaw.Los Angeles now hosts Atlanta in the best-of-five NL Division Series beginning Thursday.“We’re going to beat Atlanta Ted Williams Jersey ,” a shirtless Yasiel Puig proclaimed, rivulets of beer and champagne down his front and back. “No matter who’s coming, we’re going to the World Series and bring the 2018 championship here.”Denied their first division title in franchise history, the Rockies head to Wrigley Field to play the Chicago Cubs in the NL wild-card game on Tuesday night.“Our guys will put it in the rearview for sure,” Rockies manager Bud Black said of the loss. “The resiliency of this group has been awesome all year.”Pitching in 90-degree heat, Buehler was oh-so-cool in closing out a regular season that ended with Game 163 after both teams had identical records of 91-71.The soft-spoken 24-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky, has been so steady of late that manager Dave Roberts had no qualms about giving Buehler the ball for the crucial game that helped decide the Dodgers’ postseason fate.“He’s ready for this moment,” Roberts said, “and he responded.”Buehler’s only slip-up came on the field after the game when he let loose with an inadvertent expletive, having been handed the mic after fans demanded to hear from him. He clasped his hand to his mouth and apologized.No need to be sorry, though, after that performance.Buehler settled in quickly, retiring his first six batters in a row, and never did allow a run.“Walker is a tremendous talent,” Kershaw said. “His competitiveness is off-the-charts Jim Rice Jersey , his ability is off-the-charts.”Buehler (8-5) had his no-hit bid broken up in the sixth on Charlie Blackmon’s single, one of his two hits for the Rockies.“He didn’t fold at all under pressure,” Muncy said. “He went there and attacked them just like we knew he was going to.”Buehler even helped himself offensively, hitting a single in the sixth for his first professional RBI and extending the Dodgers’ lead to 5-0.“Love that, absolutely,” he said, soaked to the skin.After giving up a two-out walk to Carlos Gonzalez in the seventh, Buehler exited to a standing ovation from the announced crowd of 47,816. He waved his right hand and quickly strode to the dugout as fans chanted his last name. The right-hander struck out three and walked three.Despite posting the best road record in franchise history (44-38), the Rockies couldn’t get untracked. They didn’t advance a runner past second base until the ninth when Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story homered back-to-back off closer Kenley Jansen.Jansen then retired the next three batters in a row.“What happened?” Jansen said when asked about the homers. “We’re first in the division, that’s what happened.”The Dodgers’ two homers extended their franchise and NL-leading total to 235 on the season. Bellinger got the Dodgers on the board with his 25th homer in the fourth, a two-out shot to left that made it 2-0. Muncy struck out leading off but was safe at first on a passed ball by catcher Tony Wolters. After Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal struck out, Bellinger connected on a 1-0 pitch from German Marquez (14-11).Joc Pederson doubled to deep right-center leading off the fifth. One out later, Muncy hit his 35th homer to left-center, extending the lead to 4-0 and chasing Marquez. Marquez gave up four runs — two earned — and five hits in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out nine and walked two.The Dodgers played their first tiebreaker since 1980, when they lost to Houston for the division title.The Rockies were on a roll coming into the club’s second tiebreaker and first for the NL West title http://www.redsoxproshops.com/authentic-nomar-garciaparra-jersey , having won nine of 10 since being swept at Dodger Stadium from Sept. 17-19.“Today was unfortunate, but the fact of the matter is we have a chance to win the World Series,” Blackmon said. “I feel like most of the guys are looking at this as a great opportunity.”DIVISION TITLE ROLLRoberts joins Minnesota’s Ron Gardenhire (2002-04) and Houston’s Larry Dierker (1997-99) as the only managers to win three straight division titles in their first three seasons on the job.GOOGLE-EYED LASORDATom Lasorda stood in the midst of the partying, his blue Dodgers jacket bone-dry. The 91-year-old Hall of Famer, who managed the club to its last World Series title in 1988, wore goggles to protect his eyes from the spray of alcohol.THROUGH THE GATESThe announced attendance of 47,816 pushed the Dodgers’ season total to 3,857,500, breaking the franchise record of 3,857,036 set in 2007 and the sixth-highest in NL history.GOING LONGArenado finished the regular season with 38 homers to lead the NL. Story ended with 37, a career-high.UP NEXTThe Dodgers get two days off before the division series. The Rockies were headed to Chicago immediately after the game.
