After sweeping the Milwaukee Brewers in the wild-card playoffs, the Dodgers opened their best-of-five series National League Division Series against the rival San Diego Padres on Tuesday.

The game marked the first postseason meeting between the two California teams, and it came with the strange COVID-19 twist of the game being played in Arlington, Texas, at Globe Life Field.

Robert Gauthier, a longtime photographer at the Los Angeles Times, captured these images from the Dodgers’ 5-1 victory.
