Tiebreakers to Decide NL Central, NL West

The NL Will Have Two One-Game Playoff Games For The First Time Ever National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

Jim Deshaies set the modern record by striking out his first eight batters in a 1986 game, and Jacob deGrom matched the feat in 2014. 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.

Muncy then doubled the Dodgers lead in the fifth with another two-run blast before Buehler's RBI in the sixth made it 5-0.

With the Colorado Rockies needing a win Sunday to keep their NL West title hopes alive, star outfielder Charlie Blackmon certainly did his part. When they were in Brooklyn, the Dodgers finished tied with the rival Giants for the 1951 NL pennant, and then famously lost a three-game series to NY on a home run by Bobby Thomson. The right-hander walked three with three strikeouts.

"Not many times in our past have we had a chance to play for a divisional title this late in the season", Trevor Story said. "But the stuff was the same - he's good". The loser will play either the Cubs or the Brewers in the NL Wild Card Game.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler throws against the Colorado Rockies during the first inning of a tiebreaker baseball game, Monday, Oct. 1, 2018, in Los Angeles. The Cubs and Rockies both suffered losses Saturday to allow their division rivals to grab a share of the lead in their respective divisions.

Black has repeatedly called the Rockies "resilient", and Blackmon spoke like a true believer in the quiet loser's clubhouse.

The last team to win a tiebreaker game and go on to win the World Series is the 1978 Yankees. "That's what we've got our eye on right now".

"I'm looking forward to the battle in Chicago", Freeland said.

They went 14-4 over the last three weeks of the season.

L.A. won the season series against Atlanta 5-2, and matches up very well with the Braves.

The playoff-bound Colorado Rockies are headed to Los Angeles for a tiebreaking game to decide the division crown after routing the Washington Nationals 12-0 on Sunday behind Blackmon's cycle.

As Marquez discovered, the Dodgers wield powerful bats.

Yelich singled home Milwaukee's first run and won the NL batting title with a.326 average. Marquez brought his firepower and struck out nine Dodgers in his 4 ⅔ innings. Kenly Jansen gave up more than double the amount of home runs this year (13) than last year (6). "But they got those two homers. I'm ready to go, and I'm not too anxious about being on short rest". But it was just one of those days. He's now hitting.413 nine games there with three homers and 17 RBI and an OPS way north of 1.200. They struck initially in the fourth inning, as Max Muncy struck out but got reached first base due to a passed ball.
