The Los Angeles Dodgers celebrated clinching the 2013 NL West division title with a swim in a rival's pool.

Capping an unbelievable second-half turnaround, the Dodgers became the first MLB team to clinch a playoff spot with 7-6 win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday afternoon in Arizona. Following the on-field celebration and the locker room champagne spraying, Don Mattingly's club ventured back out onto the field and made for the swimming pool beyond the center-field wall at Chase Field.

At least one Diamondbacks player did not appreciate the behavior: Willie Bloomquist.

Just a few months ago, the Dodgers seemed likelier to be firing Mattingly than dousing him in champagne. The team was floundering in last place on July 1st before completing a remarkable turnaround for the team's first division title since 2009.

Clearly, the players felt like celebrating.
