National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

The Giants have played the Dodgers close in the first two games of the series, but haven't been able to beat them.

A one-game playoff in 1980 was no better for the Dodgers, who were beaten 7-1 by Houston for the NL West championship. Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez scored six of the Cubs' runs. Manny Machado has 12 hits and is batting.300 over his past 10 games for Los Angeles.

Bumgarner beat the Dodgers 5-2 on August 13, allowing a home run to Justin Turner among seven hits in six innings.

Colorado was ahead 9-0 at home against Washington in the eighth on two home runs by Nolan Arenado.

"Everyone did it different", Roberts said. Brian Dozier's two-run homer and a two-run double by Kemp highlighted a seven-run third inning.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to take part in October baseball, extending the team's MLB-leading streak.




Joe Panik and Evan Longoria got the only hits, a pair of singles, for the Giants, who went 5-21 in September. "To win the game and get a couple days off, to host the division series is very important".

Both Colorado and Los Angeles absolutely put on a show offensive against their respective opponents on Sunday.

Buehler will take the mound on a roll, having allowed two earned runs in 20 innings of his last three starts. Manager Bruce Bochy has indicated that he would like to return next season, but the team has yet to make an announcement regarding his future.

Muncy's pinch-hit homer gave him 34 for the season and the drive splashed into McCovey Cove beyond the right-field arcade. Bet the Los Angeles Dodgers -200 over the Giants.

If any of you would like a note to provide to your boss/teacher/parent so you can be excused from work/school/chores, please let me know and I'll be happy to provide it for you.

The Dodgers clinched baseball's final playoff berth by beating the Giants 10-6 on Saturday and celebrated with champagne in the visiting clubhouse - then all attention turned to winning another division crown. And some happened at AT&T Park, where tonight's game will be played.
