Dodgers, Rockies To Face Off In Tie-Breaker For NL West Title

If the Dodgers lose, they will be the league's second wild card team and play Tuesday in the wild card at the loser of Monday's NL Central tiebreaker between the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago's Wrigley Field.

"It was a really tough race this year", Maeda said.

Anderson is coming off two strong starts, the last September 19 at Los Angeles when he held the Dodgers to three hits and two runs in six innings of a no-decision as the Rockies lost 5-2. "He did a good job of mixing it up and he threw a lot of off-speed pitches for strikes".

Led by a 2-run homer from Corey Bellinger, the Dodgers jumped all over the Rockies from the opening bell and never looked back. "Being able to win despite having to fight through, this is a lesson we'll carry over into the postseason", he said.

After the game, Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw said Buehler is up to the challenge of playing under pressure. Muncy struck out leading off but was safe at first on a passed ball by catcher Tony Wolters.

Buehler also helped out his own cause at the plate, slapping an RBI single to right field, capping off an outstanding day for the 24-year-old.

The best personal mark Woods ever had at the Ryder Cup was the only other time he was a captain's pick, going 3-1 in Wales. It's a shot, and an occasion, that has been on Fleetwood's mind since the Ryder Cup became a realistic goal of his.

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. For the first time in his career, Jansen finished the season with an ERA above 3.00 and also worked with an ERA+ lower than anything since 2014.

Justin Turner and David Freese drove in the Los Angeles runs in the first inning before Kemp had a two-run double and Brian Dozier a two-run homer in the third, during which the Dodgers went up 9-0.

"Nobody knows if I'm going to be back or nobody knows if I am going to be in a different uniform", said the 2015 NL MVP, who turns 26 next month. It's the first division title for Milwaukee since they moved to the National League in 2011.

Anthony Rizzo homered for Chicago's lone run. Their 235 home runs are tied for sixth-most on the NL's all-time list.

Of the seven previous teams to win a tiebreaker game in the wild-card era (1995-present), only the 2007 Rockies went on to play in the World Series (lost to Red Sox) and only two other teams got as far as a league championship series (1995 Mariners and 1999 Mets). The last NL player to win the Triple Crown was Joe Medwick in 1937 for the Cardinals. Yelich's 36 home runs are tied with Colorado's Trevor Story and St. Louis' Matt Carpenter, one behind Arenado. Miguel Cabrera did it for Detroit in 2012.
