Two tiebreaker games set in NL

The NL Will Have Two One-Game Playoff Games For The First Time Ever

The NL Will Have Two One-Game Playoff Games For The First Time Ever

Both teams had identical records of 91-71 in the 162-game regular season to force one of two tiebreaker games in Major League Baseball. That handed the Dodgers their sixth straight division title while the Rockies now have to win another game to earn a playoff series. The loser plays again Tuesday night, hosting the runner-up in the NL West in the wild-card game. Then, Cody Bellinger hit a two-run blast off German Marquez to take the 2-0 lead.

The soft-spoken 24-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky, has been so steady of late that manager Dave Roberts had no qualms about giving Buehler the ball for the crucial game that helped decide the Dodgers' postseason fate.

The Dodgers are facing off Monday afternoon with the Colorado Rockies in a tie-breaker game at Dodger Stadium to determine the National League West champion.

First pitch for the National League Divisional Series is set for 5:37 on Thursday evening at Dodger Stadium. 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. Travis Shaw added a solo homer for Milwaukee, which finished the 162-game schedule on a seven-game winning streak.

Here's how and when to watch Dodgers vs. Rockies.

Los Angeles' two homers extended its franchise and NL-leading total to 235 on the season.

Blackmon led off the bottom of the first inning against the Nationals with a triple and came around to score on a two-run home run by Nolan Arenado.

The Rockies countered with one - count 'em - one hit off Buehler, a single by Charlie Blackmon to break up Buehler's no-hitter in the sixth.

Buehler not only allowed just one hit, he had a hit of his own and even collected his first career RBI on his single in the sixth inning. They have a risky top end of their lineup with the likes of Freeman and Markakis, as every playoff team will, but the Dodgers will be a heavy favorite with an overwhelming lineup top-to-bottom.
