    "Everybody is excited about it," Van Slyke said. "I was just looking for something to hit hard," Van Slyke said. "It was a good changeup down." Scott Van Slyke has bounced between the Dodgers and the minors five times this season, even smiling whenever manager Don Mattingly approached him with the news that he would be going back down again. Instead, it was Scott Van Slyke belting a two-run homer in the 11th inning to send Los Angeles past Arizona, 5-3, at Dodger Stadium. The victory reduced the Dodgers' magic number for clinching the National League West title to six. The Dodgers signed Volquez at the end of August after he was released by San Diego. He then walked Gerardo Parra on five pitches to begin the fifth and served up a two-run homer to Didi Gregorius on the next offering.
