Tiebreakers to Decide NL Central, NL West

Tiebreakers to Decide NL Central, NL West

An exciting final day of the regular season, gets even more exciting as there will be two game 163's, a first in Major League Baseball history.

LA jumped out to a 5-0 lead and never trailed, winning 5-2.

Justin Turner and David Freese drove in the Los Angeles runs in the first inning before Kemp had a two-run double and Brian Dozier a two-run homer in the third, during which the Dodgers went up 9-0.

Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler and the bullpen maintained a shutout through eight innings, with the Rockies able to squeak out a couple of runs in the final inning. In the end, the Dodgers secured their sixth consecutive NL West title with a convincing 5-2 victory.

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. Blackmon then drilled a two-run homer of his own in the third, singled to lead off the fifth, and completed the cycle with an RBI double in the eighth.

No such luxury for the Colorado Rockies, who had to board a plane from Los Angeles to the Windy City right after their 5-2 loss to the Dodgers last night. His last game against Colorado came on September 19, where he went six innings and struck out 12 batters. It was a near tie between the Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers, Colorado Rockies, Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals.

With the hosts struggling to carve out chances, Jose Mourinho withdrew Alexis Sanchez for Anthony Martial in the 76th minute. Valencia appeared to avoid those problems and could have easily be celebrating a memorable win at Old Trafford.

To counter, the Rockies will send German Marquez to the mound.

That was Fedde's only career appearance against the Rockies, leaving him 0-1 with a 15.75 ERA against them as he awaits his 14th career start and Coors Field debut.

CHICAGO (AP) - Anthony Rizzo had four hits and scored three times, and Chicago set up a tiebreaker game for the NL Central title. The 91-year-old Hall of Famer, who managed the club to its last World Series title in 1988, wore goggles to protect his eyes from the spray of alcohol.

The Los Angeles Dodgers may need some help from the Washington Nationals this weekend to secure their playoff future, and manager Dave Roberts is ready to pull out all the stops.

Jesus Aguilar homered and drove in three runs, and host Milwaukee remained tie for first in the NL Central by pummeling Detroit.

On his latest Rockie Road podcast, Jake Shapiro said that he isn't going to go down that road again as Rockies fans have discussed that take over and over this season.
