Wives, kids and a puppy were in on the party with music blaring.The Los Angeles Dodgers celebrated their fourth straight National League West title with the kind of storybook ending this city was built on: winning the crown in Vin Scullys final home game when Charlie Culberson homered with two outs in the 10th inning to beat the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Sunday.It hasnt really sunk in, said Culberson, who made the Opening Day roster only to flip-flop between the majors and minors during the season.

Believe me when I tell you, Ive needed you far more than youve needed me.At that, he asked the crowd to indulge what he called a loving gesture and listen to him singing Wind Beneath My Wings that he recorded for his wife, Sandi. As the song played, the couple stood with their arms around each other.A lot of history this weekend, ace Clayton Kershaw said.Under Dave Roberts, the Dodgers became the first NL West team to win four straight division titles, also a first in franchise history.

Were going to enjoy it.Culbersons first homer of the season and just the sixth of his career landed in the lower left-field seats, causing wild cheers and a raucous celebration at home plate. The Dodgers charged out of their dugout and surrounded Culberson, jumping up and down. They donned championship T-shirts and hats from carts wheeled onto the field.I wanted to see how they did it because everybody on this team believes and thinks that were going to do that next year, Colorado starter Tyler Anderson said after his teams 83rd defeat.The Dodgers turned toward the broadcast booth, took off their caps and held them in a salute to Scully, nattily attired in his usual long-sleeved shirt and tie despite the 95-degree heat. He began with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1950 and is the longest-tenured broadcaster with a single team in professional sports.What a special day, third baseman Justin Turner said. Its an incredible feeling.The Dodgers provided plenty of drama for Scully to describe.Yeah, Vin has a lot of pull, Colorado manager Walt Weiss said.Corey Seager homered with two outs in the ninth off Adam Ottavino, tying the game at 3-3.

The left-hander struck out one and walked two.Its the way its been all year, different guys doing different things to win games, said Kershaw, his hair soaked.Joe Blanton (7-2) pitched the 10th to earn the victory.Boone Logan (2-5) took the loss in relief.The Dodgers trailed 2-1 after Yasiel Puigs sacrifice fly in the third.Colorado took a 2-0 lead in the third on Dustin Garneaus RBI double in the right-field corner and Charlie Blackmons sacrifice fly.Brandon McCarthy came off the disabled list (right hip stiffness) earlier in the day to make his first start for the Dodgers since Aug. 13. He replaced Rich Hill, who skipped his scheduled start for precautionary reasons because of a recurrence of blisters on the index finger of his left pitching hand.McCarthy gave up two runs and four hits in 5 1/3 innings, struck out six and walked one. He hasnt won since July 9 against San Diego.Several Dodgers tipped their helmets or saluted toward Scully in his booth before stepping into the box for their first at-bats.Some of Scullys grandchildren popped into the booth between innings, sharing hugs and kisses before he put his headset back on. Fans chanted VIN! VIN! VIN! between innings when video tributes to him were aired. A sheepish Scully covered his face with his hands, having said earlier that all the attention was embarrassing.COUNTING DOWNScullys final three games will be next weekend at San Francisco. He wont do the three-game series in San Diego starting Tuesday, having long ago reduced his travel.REMEMBERING FERNANDEZThere was a moment of silence for Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez before the game.

Fullback James Hook also kicked three out of four conversions.Wing Jack Wallace and Luke Arscott got late Bristol consolation tries, one of which Arscott coverted.Gloucester began the match in determined fashion, with Bristol stuck inside their own half as the Cherry and Whites pounded their defence.Former England number eight Ben Morgan was on the rampage and made several holes in the visitors defence. Once they started to motor, the Premierships basement side took the game to Gloucester, and they went ahead when Woodward slotted a simple shot from 23 metres to put Bristol three points ahead.The visitors had Gloucester on the rack soon after as they reached Gloucesters tryline, with skipper Jordan Crane at number eight leading the charge - but could not breach a solid defence. Woodward, though, added a second penalty after 18 minutes and were giving the Cherry and Whites headaches.Skipper Heinz came the closest to grabbing a Gloucester try during a decidedly average first period when he was stopped two metres short of the line - and the home crowd vented their frustration when Hook, who has signed for Welsh region Ospreys for next sseason, missed a straightforward penalty.

Ref Matthew Carley also awarded a penalty try, which Hook converted.Bristol almost got a try when replacement fly-half Billy Searle set a lovely ball inside to lock James Phillips but, on review, the pass was adjudged forward.It was tough luck on Bristol but they suffered even worse fortune when Purdy waltzed past two attempted tackles from 10 metres out to stroll over on the left for Gloucesters bonus point try.
