Kershaw, Dodgers beat Rockies 6-1 for 111th victory

Clayton Kershaw prepared for the postseason with nine strikeouts in a 6-1 win against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday.

The Dodgers won their 111th game to become the National League's winningest club in more than a century.

Trea Turner hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the fifth inning for the NL West winners, who won 111-51 to become the most successful club since the 1906 Chicago Cubs (116-36).

Kershaw struck out 2,807 times. As the Dodgers snapped a three-game slump, he gave one run and one hit in five innings and walked one

The Dodgers hold home-field advantage throughout the postseason as the top seed. Oct. 11 is their Division Series opener against the Mets or San Diego.

The Rockies lost 68-94, their most since 2015, after four consecutive two-hit games. Poorer than their 2021 score of 74-87. A pointless game had drama.

Freddie Freeman tried to pass New York Mets' Jeff McNeil for the NL hitting title. Freeman singled and homered in his first two at-bats to catch McNeil, but a fifth-inning flyout to the center field warning track.

After missing the Mets' rain-delayed finale against Washington, McNeil hit.326. Freeman hit.325 this season.
