Dodgers Play Rockies In Single-Game Tie-Breaker Monday

Dodgers Play Rockies In Single-Game Tie-Breaker Monday

They have now won the West in each of the last six seasons.

The victor of the Brewers-Cubs tiebreaker will play in the division series against the victor of the wild card game - which will be contested on Tuesday by the losers of Monday's tiebreakers.

The Dodgers now advance to the NLDS, where they will host the Atlanta Braves in a best of five series beginning on Thursday.

He may be cocky, but the 24-year-old backed it up on the field, helping the Dodgers secure their sixth straight NL West title.

Rockies' starting pitcher Tyler Anderson managed to escape the first inning unscathed with just four pitches despite allowing two singles. He threw 93 pitches while striking out three and walking three.

The last time a Rockie hit for the cycle was Nolan Arenado on June 18, 2017 when he walked off the San Francisco Giants to finish the feat and provide one of the most memorable endings in Rockies history. He finished the regular-season with an 8-5 record and a 2.62 ERA.

Closer Kenley Jansen continued his late-season struggles by allowing back-to-back homers in the 9th, but he finished out the inning and ensured the Dodgers would clinch the division.

After the game, Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw said Buehler is up to the challenge of playing under pressure. He improved to two-for-17. They would not trail the rest of the game.

Maeda came on with one out and a runner on first, and retired the two batters he faced on a groundout and strikeout.

The Dodgers added a run in the sixth on an RBI single by Buehler.

Fans of the team were hoping to see Cy Young candidate Max Scherzer out there for the final game in a last-ditch attempt to ruin someone else's playoff hopes, but the organization announced that Colorado would instead be dodging a bullet.

David Dahl crushed a three-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning to extend the Rockies' lead to 7-0.

The Rockies have had playoff success despite never winning their division.

The first team to win three games in the division series will advance to the best-of-seven-game National League Championship Series against the victor of the other two-team division series.
