Adjust Comment Print

The Los Angeles Dodgers entered the final day of the season tied for the National League West lead, meaning they need a bit of help to clinch the division title on Sunday. But if they lose, they will be the league's second wild card team and have to travel to Wrigley Field to play the the Chicago Cubs in a second tie-breaker Tuesday night. The 1946 pennant was also decided by a best-of-three tiebreaker, with the Cardinals beating Brooklyn in two straight.

The game started with a lighter crowd than anticipated as typical Los Angeles traffic prevented fans from getting to the game until the 3rd inning. And there will be fresh edition of the podcast after the final pitch is thrown.

Outside of the year 2007, this will be the biggest game in the history of the franchise. That game went 13 innings, with Colorado prevailing 9-8 when Matt Holliday may or may not have touched the plate when he was credited with the winning run. Seeding and home field advantage is also at issue, of course. His career average is.248. Marquez will oppose rookie right-hander Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76), who has faced the Rockies five times this season. The victor will boast the National League's record and host the NL Division Series on Thursday.
