Sept. 20 (Bloomberg) -- The Washington Nationals joined the Cincinnati Reds as the first two Major League Baseball teams to clinch 2012 playoff spots.

The Nationals won 4-1 against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers tonight, giving the nation’s capital a postseason baseball team for the first time in 79 years.

Earlier today, the Reds (91-59) won 5-3 at the Chicago Cubs to become the first team to assure itself of a postseason spot.

The Nationals (91-58), who have the best record in the major leagues, are the first Washington team to make the postseason since the 1933 Senators won the American League pennant and then lost the World Series in five games to the New York Giants.
