Tiebreakers have been perilous for Dodgers

Tiebreakers have been perilous for Dodgers

Tied atop the division with the Dodgers entering the last day, the Rockies won for the ninth time in 10 games, while Los Angeles routed San Francisco to send the season to Game 163.

The Dodgers now advance to the NLDS, where they will host the Atlanta Braves in a best of five series beginning on Thursday. With the Brewers' win, they are also the top seed and will face the victor of the Cubs' Wild Card game against the Colorado Rockies.

Anderson is coming off two strong starts, the last September 19 at Los Angeles when he held the Dodgers to three hits and two runs in six innings of a no-decision as the Rockies lost 5-2. There have been plenty of games this season that could've gone Colorado's way, including an 8-5 loss in Los Angeles on August 9 where the Dodgers came back late to win.

Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76 ERA) gets the start for the Dodgers and getting scratched from Sunday's outing.

Walker Buehler will start for the Dodgers as the defending NL champions try for a sixth straight West title.

The playoff-bound Colorado Rockies are headed to Los Angeles for a tiebreaking game to decide the division crown after routing the Washington Nationals 12-0 on Sunday behind Blackmon's cycle. Muncy followed in the fifth inning with his own two-run home run, his 35th of the season. Dahl has six home runs in his last seven games and 15 RBI's.




Tensions were running high in Denver, Colorado on Monday despite the dramatics taking place in Los Angeles, California.

Blackmon led off the bottom of the first inning against the Nationals with a triple and came around to score on a two-run home run by Nolan Arenado.

The Rockies countered with one - count 'em - one hit off Buehler, a single by Charlie Blackmon to break up Buehler's no-hitter in the sixth.

Milwaukee hasn't announced a starting pitcher for Monday's 163rd regular season game.

The Brewers stretched the lead to 3-1 shortly afterwards when Ryan Braun drove to centre-field for an RBI single that brought Santana home. He went 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA in two starts against the Brewers during that span. In five games he has 48 strikeouts and eight earned runs while going 33.2 innings.

Bellinger got the Dodgers' offense going with a two-run home run in the fourth inning, his 25th of the season. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts subbed many of his starters to get them rest and also use some of his reserves so they got some at-bats before Monday. The 91-year-old Hall of Famer, who managed the club to its last World Series title in 1988, wore goggles to protect his eyes from the spray of alcohol.
