In 26 seasons, the Colorado Rockies have yet to win their division, taking the Los Angeles Dodgers to Game 163 today, but falling 5-2 to LA.

The victor advances to host the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the opener of the best-of-five Division Series on Thursday and the loser settles for playing in the Wild Card Game on Tuesday at the Milwaukee Brewers or the Chicago Cubs.

Colorado will travel to face the Cubs, who lost the NL Central tiebreaker to the Brewers, in the single-elimination National League wild-card game Tuesday. The Rockies will counter with German Marquez (14-10, 3.76 ERA), who struck out eight straight to begin his last start.

In Sunday's game, Yelich went 0 for 2 with two walks and scored twice.

Buehler is 7-5 with a 2.76 ERA and 0-1 with a 2.61 ERA in five starts against Colorado. Los Angeles will take on Colorado for the NL West title Monday, one of...

The Dodgers became the first team to win six consecutive division titles since the New York Yankees won nine consecutive American League East titles from 1998-2006.

First baseman Max Muncy followed with another two-run homer off of Marquez in the fifth to help the Dodgers put the game out of reach. David Dahl homered for the sixth time in seven games.


In such an important game, the Dodgers made a decision to hand the ball to rookie Walker Buehler, and he came through in a big way.

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.

Sunday will be the final time the Washington Nationals play this year, even though at the start of the year, they hoped to go further. Buehler's incredible performance should give the team confidence that the 24-year old will be a reliable piece to the postseason roster, rounding out a three-man rotation consisting of Kershaw, Ryu, and Buehler in that order. He beat out an infield single in the fourth while going 4 of 5 on the day.

The Brewers then looked to Josh Hader to shut down the Cubs in the final two innings, and the All-Star pitcher duly delivered, getting the final six outs to see Milwaukee home.

The Rockies went on to defeat the Nationals 12-0.

J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning, and host Boston concluded the best regular season in team history with a victory over NY.

Francisco Lindor hit a home run, and Carlos Carrasco pitched five strong innings as Cleveland ended the regular season with a victory at Kansas City. CarGo has had a nice bounce-back season after last year's season to forget.
