Dodgers' postseason hopes on the line in series vs. Giants

If both teams win on Sunday, they will play a tiebreaker on Monday at Dodger Stadium.

Rich Hill (11-5) pitched two-hit ball for seven innings to keep the playoff-bound Dodgers on a roll.

In the NL West matchup, the Dodgers will start rookie Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76 ERA), who has been hot down the stretch, with a 1.70 ERA in his last 11 starts. Anthony Rizzo had three hits for Chicago.

Turner, Freese, Hernandez, Chris Taylor and Manny Machado scored twice apiece, while Max Muncy connected on his 34th homer of the season and Austin Barnes hit his fourth for Los Angeles.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3) allowed one run on four hits over six innings to win his third straight start.

The pending free agent has responded with seven hits in 21 at-bats this week, with two doubles and a home run.

"Everyone did it different", Roberts said. Two of those starts were in 2013 against the Braves when he gave up just one run in 13 innings.


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 title.

Out of all six appearances, this one feels the most unique as the Los Angeles Dodgers are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in the 2017 World Series to the Houston Astros.

As it now stands, rookie Walker Buehler may be the Dodgers' best pitcher.

"No question that's the last way we wanted this thing to go out", manager Bruce Bochy said. With six straight postseason's under the team's belt, the Los Angeles Dodgers now own the third-longest postseason streak in Major League Baseball history.

Update (6:16 PM ET): The Dodgers went on to beat the Giants 15-0.

Pence received big cheers from the sellout crowd as he ran to the outfield some 20 minutes before first pitch and he waved and clapped in appreciation.

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. And some happened at AT&T Park, where tonight's game will be played.
