The Mets clinched the NL East with a win over the Reds on Saturday. After Saturday’s loss, the Dodgers sit a half game behind the Mets for home-field advantage in their opening-round series.
Gonzalez hit a walk-off two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the last-place Rockies their second win over the Dodgers in as many days.
The homer was Gonzalez’s 39th of the season, tied for the sixth-most in the majors.
The Dodgers have yet to clinch the division but their magic number to do so stands at two with eight games to play.
