LEADING OFF: Dodgers try to clinch NL West, Verlander rolls

A look at what's happening all around the majors today:

DODGER STADIUM DELIGHT

Los Angeles can clinch its fifth straight NL West title with either a win at Dodger Stadium over San Francisco or a loss by second-place Arizona to Miami. The Dodgers still own the best record in the majors in the race for home-field advantage throughout the postseason, but just by a game over Cleveland after losing 20 of 26. Rich Hill (10-8, 3.60 ERA) starts the potential clincher for LA. The Dodgers also will see how third baseman Justin Turner is feeling, a day after he sustained a bruised right thumb. Turner is hitting a team-leading .321 with 21 homers and 70 RBIs.
