Giants clinch second wild card, complete sweep of Dodgers
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) If it is an even-numbered year, the San Francisco Giants find their way into the playoffs
San Francisco made it on the final day of the regular season, securing the second NL wild card with a 7-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep of their rival.
Denard Span hit a two-run triple among his three hits, and Buster Posey drove in three runs and had three hits.
San Francisco, which won Series titles in 2010, '12 and '14, plays at the defending NL champion New York Mets on Wednesday night in the NL wild-card game, with the winner advancing to a Division Series against the Chicago Cubs. Madison Bumgarner, the 2014 World Series MVP, will face Noah Syndergaard.
