  • Sep 29 2018 San Francisco CA USA Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw delivers against the San Francisco Giants

He has 109 RBIs, two behind leader Javier Baez of the Cubs, and Yelich's 36 home runs are one behind Nolan Arenado of the Rockies. The Rockies rallied in the top of the ninth, but it was too little too late as the Dodgers held on for a 5-2 win in the NL West tiebreaker Monday. But it's hard to deny that the Rockies have real motivation to win while the Nats have something less than that.

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 game started with a lighter crowd than anticipated as typical Los Angeles traffic prevented fans from getting to the game until the 3rd inning. "He throws good cutters, good curveball", David Dahl said Sunday night after the Rockies 12-0 win over the Washington Nationals to clinch a game No. 163. Starters Walker Buehler and Germán Márquez traded zeroes through the first three innings.

Marquez's most recent appearance against the Dodgers was June 30th, in which he hurled an absolute gem, striking out nine batters on his way to an eight inning, two-hit, one run performance.


Buehler did not allow Colorado to record a hit until there was one out in the sixth. Buehler has posted a 2.76 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in his first full big league season. It is not yet known who the Rockies will start. He improved to 2-for-17.

As for the rules governing the extra contests, they'll be the same as for all other games in September.

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. He also faced the Braves in that 2013 series, allowing four runs in three innings in his only start.

The Rockies have had playoff success despite never winning their division. The victor of Monday's matchup will clinch the division title and advance to National League Divisional Series against the Braves with home-field advantage.
