National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

Adjust Comment Print

The Dodgers fell out of the division lead with a 7-2 loss Wednesday at Arizona before taking all three from the injury-plagued Giants (73-89) to close out the final weekend of the regular season. The victor gets the division and hosts Atlanta in the best-of-five Division Series starting Thursday; the loser is on the road for the NL wild-card game Tuesday against the loser of Monday's Brewers-Cubs NL Central tiebreaker. They would meet in a tiebreaker at Wrigley Field on Monday if they wind up with identical records, with the loser then playing in a wild-card game at home on Tuesday.

That's all Milwaukee needed for a 3-1 victory over the Cubs, who collected just 3 hits on the afternoon, including a monster home run by Anthony Rizzo in the fifth inning.

Colorado locked up a second straight playoff berth by beating the Nationals at home earlier Friday and the Rockies are chasing the franchise's first division title.

Ryu was perhaps the biggest surprise of the Dodgers rotation in 2018.

The Dodgers jumped on the Giants for seven runs in the third inning en route to a 15-0 win.

For the sixth consecutive year, the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to take part in October baseball, extending the team's MLB-leading streak. 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.

As for the rules governing the extra contests, they'll be the same as for all other games in September. The Dodgers and Giants each won five games at Dodger Stadium, and have split their first eight games at AT&T Park. Kemp had a two-run double and RBI single among his three hits, while Muncy and Brian Dozier each hit two-run homers. I know we believe in ourselves.

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. It is not yet known who the Rockies will start.

Suarez has not pitched almost as well in September, going 1-3. Buehler, 24, had a 2.76 ERA in 130 innings this season.
