Now that’s how you clinch a division title.

And oust your biggest rival.

Clayton Kershaw allowed just a hit and a walk over nine shutout innings and an unlikely trio of Enrique Hernandez, Justin Ruggiano, and A.J. Ellis all homered as the Dodgers dominated the Giants 8-0 on Tuesday night in San Francisco to clinch the 2015 National League West championship. The loss for the Giants means they’re officially done.

It’s the third straight division crown for the Dodgers, who will get the Mets in the best-of-five NLDS.

Kershaw vs. Jacob deGrom in Game 1 next Friday night.

Let’s do this.
