Dodgers clinch NL's top seed, West title with win over A's

LOS ANGELES (AP) Corey Seager had three hits, including one of Los Angeles' four home runs, as the Dodgers clinched the National League's top postseason seed and eighth straight West title Tuesday night with a 7-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics.

The Dodgers, who own the best record in the majors at 39-16, were the first team in the majors to clinch a playoff berth on Sept. 16. They will open postseason play on Sept. 30 by hosting every game in a best-of-three series against the No. 8 seed.

Los Angeles came into the day with a magic number of two and got help with the Angels' 4-2 victory over the San Diego Padres.
