Dodgers Playoff Scenarios For Final Day Of MLB Regular Season

01 October, 2018, 08:45 | Author: Hannah Francis
  • Brewers celebrate playoff-clinching win

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are now outside looking in at the playoff picture, as their recent losing streak has pushed them one game back of the Dodgers for the second Wild Card spot in the National League. The Rockies pounded Washington 12-0 on Sunday and Los Angeles routed San Francisco 15-0.

The Dodgers fell out of the division lead with a loss Wednesday at Arizona before taking all three from the injury-plagued Giants to close out the final weekend of the regular season.

"Fans also can purchase tickets for the game by telephone beginning at 8:30 a.m. CDT tomorrow, October 1, by calling 800-THE-CUBS (800-843-2827)".

The Brewers (92-67) began the night a half-game behind the Chicago Cubs for first place in the NL Central and 3 ½ games ahead of Colorado for the top wild-card slot.

"To win the game and get a couple days off, to host the Division Series is very important", he said.




"All the teams in the playoffs are really good". In that scenario, the Dodgers win the division and the Rockies play in Tuesday's NL Wild Card game against the Brewers or Cubs.

Walker Buehler was set to start for the Dodgers Monday, while German Marquez was slated to get the ball for the Rockies. Quintana is a sharp 6-2 with a 1.60 ERA in 10 starts against Milwaukee.

The Dodgers topped Colorado 12-7 in the season series. He ended up missing five games.

And Arenado has rediscovered his swing.

Two of the teams to win a one-game tiebreaker prior to the wild-card era went on to win the World Series, but the 1978 Yankees had to win only one series before the World Series, and the 1948 Indians moved right to the World Series after beating the Red Sox for the AL pennant. Black was in charge of the Padres then and kiddingly contends Holliday never hit home plate.
