Cody Bellinger starting for the Dodgers in Monday's tiebreaker game

Adjust Comment Print

The Dodgers and Rockies will meet Monday in Los Angeles, with the victor taking the division and the loser playing either the Milwaukee Brewers or the Chicago Cubs in the NL wild-card game Tuesday.

Because the Cubs and Brewers are tied for the NL lead with 95 wins, the victor at Wrigley Field will earn home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs and host the victor of the wild-card game in the NLDS.

Not only the Dodgers NL West bragging rights, but they also advance to the best-of-five NLDS against the Atlanta Braves with home-field advantage. Monday's losers will be back on the field Tuesday, forced to face off in the single-game elimination NL Wild-Card Game. Game 163, as it turned out, was a big letdown for the Rockies, who have still not won a division title in their 26 years of existence.

No such luxury for the Colorado Rockies, who had to board a plane from Los Angeles to the Windy City right after their 5-2 loss to the Dodgers last night.

Jansen recovered however to get the final three outs and wrap up the Dodgers sixth straight divisional title.

It wasn't the first time Major League Baseball needed to add an extra contest to its 162-game schedule to decide which team would be a division champ. Kemp had a two-run double and RBI single among his three hits. David Dahl homered for the sixth time in seven games.

It was arguably the most dramatic setting for a game Colorado Rockies history.

But with the starting pitching and lineup as devastating as it is, there's a risky team in Los Angeles, one that's hungrier than ever. The bats were hot as Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle and Nolan Arenado hit two home runs. He went 6.2 innings pitched with one hit allowed, three strikeouts and three walks.

Muncy then doubled the Dodgers lead in the fifth with another two-run blast before Buehler's RBI in the sixth made it 5-0. In 2007, they beat the San Diego Padres to earn a wild-card berth, and then went on to sweep through the NL playoffs on the way to the World Series.

Milwaukee hasn't announced a starting pitcher for Monday's 163rd regular season game. The Chiefs remain undefeated at 4-0 on the year, while the Broncos fall to 2-2.

Bellinger got the scoring started with a 2-run home run in the bottom of the fourth, his 25th home run of the season. They have a risky top end of their lineup with the likes of Freeman and Markakis, as every playoff team will, but the Dodgers will be a heavy favorite with an overwhelming lineup top-to-bottom.
