Major League Baseball playoffs: Los Angeles Dodgers/Colorado Rockies, game 163 thread

  • Mikolas goes 8 innings Cardinals beat Cubs 2-1

The Dodgers and Rockies were tied for the NL West lead while the Cubs and Brewers were tied for the NL Central lead. Cody Bellinger will be manning center field today and hitting sixth behind catcher Yasmani Grandal. The Dodgers had never won more than two consecutive division titles before the current run. Los Angeles is set to take on the Braves in the NLDS. "We need this the whole (bleeping) playoffs", Buehler said on the field during the celebration after the game, apologizing for the profanity. Brian Dozier, Max Muncy, and Austin Barnes hit home runs, while lefty Rich Hill went seven shutout innings and giving up only two hits. This Thursday's matchup will be in Los Angeles and it figures to be between Clayton Kershaw and Mike Foltynewicz who put up All-Star caliber numbers this year.

Buehler (8-5) had his no-hit bid broken up in the sixth on Charlie Blackmon's single, one of his two hits for the Rockies.

Los Angeles followed up an 18-hit performance Saturday with 16 more. In five games he has 48 strikeouts and eight earned runs while going 33.2 innings.

The Brewers then looked to Josh Hader to shut down the Cubs in the final two innings, and the All-Star pitcher duly delivered, getting the final six outs to see Milwaukee home. Chicago hosts Milwaukee on Monday afternoon, and the victor gets a spot in the division series and home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs. The loser will host Tuesday's wild-card game, which means Chicago and Milwaukee could very well meet each other again in just a few days in the NLDS. The young star was unbelievable in his last outing against the Philadelphia Phillies, striking out the first eight batters he faced, and setting Colorado's single season record for strikeouts. Rizzo hit a tie-breaking double to give him 100 RBIs on the year, waving his arms in the air as he coasted into second.




The Brewers stretched the lead to 3-1 shortly afterwards when Ryan Braun drove to centre-field for an RBI single that brought Santana home.

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.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Triple Crown contender Christian Yelich and Milwaukee advanced to an NL Central tiebreaker against Chicago with its seventh straight win. The Dodgers have a better team ERA (3.41) than Colorado (4.36) but the Rockies have a better team batting average (.256) compared to the Dodgers'.249 average.
