On the final day, they did it.

This isn’t a recap. You’ve read plenty of those this year and, thankfully, you’ll read a minimum of three more.

This isn’t an article to tell you that Logan Webb dominated, pitching brilliantly and hitting his first career home run. It’s not an article to tell you that Buster Posey played beautifully.

It’s merely an article to tell you that the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 11-4 on the final day of the regular season, giving them undisputed claim to the National League West.

The Giants are NL West champions. In a season where the Giants were supposed to be toeing the line between rebuilding and retooling, and the Los Angeles Dodgers we’re supposed to be historically good — and give credit where credit is due, they were exactly that — the Giants won the division. So I say for the billionth time: just as we all expected.

Celebrate and enjoy. The Giants won the West.
