WATCH: 67 Years Later, Vin Scully Signs Off For Final Time

LOS ANGELES ( — Vin Scully has signed off for the last time, ending 67 years behind the mic for the Dodgers.

After pinch-hitter Rob Segedin flied out to left field to end a 7-1 loss to the Giants in San Francisco, Scully spotted the umpires bidding him farewell from the field.

Scully closed his broadcast by telling viewers, “I have said enough for a lifetime and for the last time I wish you a very pleasant good afternoon.”

His work wasn’t done just yet.

Scully narrated a video of his own career highlights before he returned to the screen with a message that was taped before the game.

He told viewers he’d “miss our time together more than I can say.”

Then he closed again, reciting a familiar and favorite line among Dodgers fans: “This is Vin Scully wishing you a very pleasant good afternoon wherever you may be.”

If it is an even-numbered year, the San Francisco Giants find their way into the playoffs.

San Francisco made it on the final day of the regular season, securing the second NL wild card with a 7-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep of their rival.

Denard Span hit a two-run triple among his three hits, and Buster Posey drove in three runs and had three hits.

Scully’s Most Memorable Calls

San Francisco, which won Series titles in 2010, ’12 and ’14, plays at the defending NL champion New York Mets on Wednesday night in the NL wild-card game, with the winner advancing to a Division Series against the Chicago Cubs. Madison Bumgarner, the 2014 World Series MVP, will face Noah Syndergaard.
