Victor takes the NL West: Previewing Dodgers, Rockies game No. 163

Dodgers use four-run ninth inning to clinch playoff spot in 10-6 victory over Giants

The loser would go into the NL wild-card game Tuesday vs. the loser of the Colorado-Los Angeles Dodgers tiebreaker in the NL West.

After finishing the 162-game schedule with matching records (95-67) and in a first-place tie atop the Central, the division title and the ability to avoid playing in a one-game wild-card playoff game will be determined by a Monday meeting at Wrigley Field. Coming into the game, the Dodgers swept the Giants in San Francisco and the Rockies stumbled into Chavez Ravine with a tough series versus the Nationals. That said, Marquez has yet to face the new look lineup for Los Angeles, who made moves to acquire several names before the trade deadline, including Manny Machado and Brian Dozier. On Saturday, however, the Nationals announced that Erick Fedde would start instead, citing Scherzer's workload and the fact that both Colorado and Los Angeles had already clinched playoff spots.

Walker Buehler has been lights out for the Dodgers lately posting a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts. His ERA in that time is 5.68, while his night ERA is far better at 2.33. He completely shut down the Rockies lineup, allowing just one hit in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

FBI Reaches Out To Deborah Ramirez In Background Probe Of Kavanaugh Allegations
The FBI, however, can not force interviews in background check investigations, or in criminal investigations for that matter. Ramirez and she has agreed to cooperate with their investigation", Clune said in a tweet .

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen surrendered home runs to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the ninth before he retired the next three hitters to secure the win.

Buehler has struck out 26 batters, while only allowing two runs in his last 20 innings pitched.

Bellinger's blast was a back-breaker for German Marquez, as he started the fourth inning with a strikeout. Once Monday's playoff games are over, the Braves will know their opponent - it's whoever wins the NL West. Black has stayed the course and has put the Rockies one win away from their first-ever division title.
