Dodgers claim NL West title, Kenta Maeda contributes in relief

NL Central tiebreaker game set for Monday

The 24-year-old was brilliant, allowing just one hit over 6.2 shutout innings.

Anderson put forth arguably his best performance of the season Sunday afternoon, logging 7 2/3 innings pitched, allowing four hits while striking out five batters on 98 pitches. The Dodgers are 2-3 against the Rockies when Buehler starts against them.

The victor of the Brewers-Cubs tiebreaker will play in the division series against the victor of the wild card game - which will be contested on Tuesday by the losers of Monday's tiebreakers.

The victor of the Dodgers-Rockies game will host the first two games of the National League Division series against the East Division victor Atlanta Braves.

The Dodgers added a run in the sixth on an RBI single by Buehler.

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.

The first team to win three games in the division series will advance to the best-of-seven-game National League Championship Series against the victor of the other two-team division series. "We need this the whole (bleeping) playoffs", Buehler said on the field during the celebration after the game, apologizing for the profanity.

Los Angeles took a two-run lead over the Rockies in the fourth inning and tallied two more one frame later.

An inning later, Muncy crushed a 99 miles per hour fastball to the opposite field for his 35th dinger of the season. The Rockies will play the Chicago Cubs in the wild-card game on Tuesday. It was Arenado's NL-leading 38th, while Story hit his 37th.

After the game, Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw said Buehler is up to the challenge of playing under pressure. The right-hander finished the regular season with at least nine strikeouts in seven of his final eight starts and had 230 strikeouts on the season, fourth most in the NL. They have now won the West in each of the last six seasons.
