Despite losing the final regular-season matchup against their rival San Francisco Giants, the Los Angeles Dodgers regained the top spot in USA TODAY’s MLB Power Rankings.

The Dodgers, winners of nine of their last 13 games, returned to first place in the National League West briefly last week for the first time since April 28.

The Giants, who have lost five of their nine games, have won the series against the Dodgers, 10-9, and own any tiebreaker against the Dodgers.

With four weeks remaining in the season, the two will battle for first place, but will have all but clinched a postseason ticket.

How the rest of the league fared out:
