LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers are already locked into the No. Isaiah Crowell Jersey . 2 seed in the NL playoffs. Yet, they keep on winning on the road to the post-season. Scott Van Slyke scored the winning run on Franklin Morales wild pitch in the 12th inning, and the Dodgers edged the Colorado Rockies 6-5 on Saturday night. The Dodgers (93-68) have won four straight, including an NL West-clinching victory over San Francisco on Wednesday. Colorados bullpen retired 18 straight, a stretch that spanned from the sixth inning until the 12th, but couldnt turn that into a win. Van Slyke singled with one out, advanced to second when Tim Federowicz was hit by a pitch, stole third, and came home on Morales wild pitch. Scott Van Slyke single-handedly won the game for us right there, catcher A.J. Ellis said. That was a big base hit. We hadnt had a baserunner in quite some time. Then for him to show off not just his speed, but his baseball savvy. Give him a lot of credit for baseball IQ and knowing what was needed for us to get off that field. Rookie Carlos Frias (1-1) pitched three scoreless innings for Los Angeles for his first major league win. Carlos was amazing, Ellis said. Giving us three innings like that, he kept giving us chances to come back and make something happen. Morales (6-9) took the loss for Colorado (66-95), which has dropped three straight. The Rockies took a 2-1 lead into the fifth inning, but the Dodgers erased it with a four-run spurt that knocked starter Eddie Butler from the game. (Butler) looked pretty sharp early, but it got away from him in the fifth, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. I felt like he threw some good sinkers, but I think he started to catch a lot of the plate in the fifth inning and he got nicked up there. Los Angeles rapped out four hits in the inning, including Van Slykes tying RBI single and Matt Kemps go-ahead RBI double. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly subbed often, and by the top of the sixth, eight of Los Angeles nine starters had been replaced -- including pitcher Dan Haren. Theres still (post-season) roster spots open, Mattingly said. Were kind of throwing guys out in different spots and seeing what we get. The Rockies chipped away against the Dodgers bullpen. Charlie Culberson singled home Michael McKenry in the sixth, and McKenry cut the deficit to 5-4 with a solo homer in the eighth. Ben Paulsen tied it in the ninth, sending Paco Rodriguezs first pitch down the right field line, just inside the foul pole, and into the seats. Paulsen has made quite an impression, Weiss said. Good hitter. Really pretty swing. Hes done a nice job. Haren took a no-decision but continued a recent hot stretch with a solid outing. He pitched five innings, allowed two runs and six hits, walked none and struck out four. He has a 2.09 ERA over his last seven starts, dating to Aug. 26. Haren wasnt available after the game but left a sign on his locker for media that read: I felt good. Im ready for the playoffs. Butler, making his third career start, gave up five runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings for Colorado. TRAINERS ROOM: Dodgers: 2B Dee Gordon was removed in the second inning due to right hip irritation. His removal was characterized as a precaution by team staff and he is day to day. ... LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (left shoulder inflammation) didnt report any pain after throwing off a mound Friday. He will throw a full bullpen session Sunday. Rockies: 2B DJ LeMahieu (sprained left knee) will have an MRI on Monday. He was injured while diving for a ball in the series opener. UP NEXT: Dodgers: RHP Zack Greinke (16-8, 2.74) looks to remain unbeaten since Aug. 9. He is 4-0 with a 2.40 ERA in his last seven starts. Rockies: RHP Christian Bergman (3-4, 5.29) wraps up his rookie season. Bergman, 26, has won three of his last four decisions.

"Its always tense. Its always emotional. Its always close," Djokovic said of the looming match up. "I look forward to it." Federer had a much easier time in the semifinals, beating Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine 6-3, 6-1 and putting himself in position to win a fifth career title at Indian Wells. Djokovic is a two-time winner here. Federer leads their rivalry 17-15, having beaten Djokovic two weeks ago in the semifinals at Dubai. Before that, Djokovic had won three straight times over the Swiss star. Second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska will play Flavia Pennetta in the womens final Sunday before the mens title is decided. Djokovic struggled with the big-serving Isner, who beat him here in the semis two years ago before losing to Federer in the final. "With that serve, obviously, he can win against anybody on a good day," Djokovic said. "I thought I returned really well today and allowed myself to have a bunch of opportunities on his service games." Djokovic had a chance to win in two sets, breaking Isner to go up 5-4 and then again at 6-5. But the American broke back at love to level at 6-6, then and then dominated in the tiebreaker. Isner won four straight points and served his sixth ace to win it 7-2 and force the decisive third set. "When you get to the tiebreaker with John Isner, whoever you are, youre not a favourite," Djokovic said. "I just tried to hang in there, stay mentally tough when I lost the second set, and played a great third." Djokovic broke Isner for a 3-1 lead in the third. Djokovic survived a break point in the next game and held for a 4-1 lead. Isner called for the trainer a second time in the match to work on an area above his left knee before he got broken to trail 5-1, missing two straight fforehands. Chris Herndon Jets Jersey. Djokovic came up with his own big serve on match point that Isner couldnt return. "It prevented me from being able to go after my serve like I wanted to, but thats not the reason I lost," Isner said about having tightness in his knee. "I am disappointed, but at the same time, I had a good week here." Isner had eight aces to Djokovics seven, and the American managed 31 winners, just one more than Djokovic. While Djokovic had to sweat out his victory, Federer was coolly efficient on the hot day in the desert, firing seven aces and connecting on 72 per cent of his first serves in the match that lasted barely an hour. "Having the fire and wanting to win every single match and in the practice trying to improve as much as you can, Ive got the good balance right now, so its very encouraging," Federer said. Federer never faced a break point on his serve while breaking Dolgopolov four times, including a seven-deuce game to go up 4-1 in the second set. Dolgopolov had a chance to win that game four times, but each time his unforced error brought it back to deuce. Federer is aiming to make Indian Wells his second title of the year. Hes coming off a victory two weeks ago at Dubai, and has a 19-2 match record this year. He won titles here from 2004-06 and again in 2012. A year ago at Indian Wells, Federer injured his back during a match and took nearly a month to feel better. After Wimbledon, he re-injured his back and found himself questioning everything, leading to an uneven year for the sports once dominant player. Back here again, Federer feels like a new man. "Im just playing more freely overall and with more confidence because I can get to more balls without thinking," he said. "I can wake up without feeling sore. I can go to bed not feeling like I hope I feel better tomorrow. I dont have these thoughts going through my mind and Im not worried every single minute of the day."
