The victor of the NL West tiebreaker will face the Braves in the NLDS.

If you're looking past the NLDS already, now is the time to register for NL Championship Series tickets. Marquez has faced off against the Dodgers three times, winning two of those games, with a 2.57 ERA.

Now, the Dodgers will wait for the Atlanta Braves to come into town for Game 1 while the Rockies play the Chicago Cubs, who lost to the Milwaukee Brewers, tomorrow in Chicago.

The Giants moved Madison Bumgarner back just to start against the Dodgers on Friday, despite the fact that the series is completely meaningless to them. The Rockies won the games they should have which is good for them but the Dodgers are the best team the Rockies have played in a while.

Marquez comes into the game 2-0 against the Dodgers this year.

In Los Angeles, rookie Walker Buehler will face off against German Marquez.

Virgil Van Dijk struggling to be fit for Chelsea clash
The 18-time English champions will make the trip to title rivals Chelsea FC in the Premier League on Saturday evening. And then I would say it's still not possible to score a goal, but he did and it was a ideal finish.

Buehler has struck out 26 batters, while only allowing two runs in his last 20 innings pitched. Buehler has posted a 2.76 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in his first full big league season.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen surrendered home runs to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the ninth before he retired the next three hitters to secure the win.

Regardless of who takes the mound for the Brewers, Milwaukee knows if it can extend its win streak, the extra two days of rest and not having to play in a must-win situation on Tuesday will be well worth the effort. The first two came off Erick Fedde, who lasted only four innings and threw 64 pitches before he was pulled.

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

The Dodgers, beaten by the Houston Astros in the World Series past year, will now advance to a best-of-five divisional series against the Atlanta Braves starting in Los Angeles on Thursday.
