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

The Rockies will throw German Marquez at the Dodgers who has had success against the Dodger blue in 2018.

Los Angeles took a two-run lead over the Rockies in the fourth inning and tallied two more one frame later. Marquez has faced off against the Dodgers three times, winning two of those games, with a 2.57 ERA. And because both teams atop the Central have the best records in the NL, the loser of Monday's early game will host the Wild Card.

The game started with a lighter crowd than anticipated as typical Los Angeles traffic prevented fans from getting to the game until the 3rd inning.

The Rockies will travel to Chavez Ravine after losing the head-to-head season series to the Dodgers (7-12) with first pitch scheduled for 2:09pm MST.

The victor of the NL West tiebreaker will face the Braves in the NLDS. The Rockies have scored all their runs via three homers: a two-run shot by Nolan Arenado in the first, a two-run shot by Charlie Blackmon in the third and a three-run shot by David Dahl in the fifth. Dodgers starter Buehler owns a 2.52 ERA, striking out 85 batters in his 71.1 career innings at home.

A passenger plane heading to Papua New Guinea is believed to have overshot its runway, landing in a lagoon in Micronesia. Witness Bill Davis told Yahoo7 News that all the passengers were evacuated quickly, a few of whom had minor injuries.

As for the rules governing the extra contests, they'll be the same as for all other games in September. The Dodgers offense was impressive in their 15-0 win over the Giants, scoring seven runs via timely hits here and there before finally hitting their first home run of the game.

Jansen recovered however to get the final three outs and wrap up the Dodgers sixth straight divisional title.

The Rockies forced their way into that playoff for the NL West title by routing Washington 12-0 on Sunday.

Colorado has made the playoffs four times since it entered Major League Baseball as an expansion team in 1993. Buehler has never pitched in a playoff game so this is as close as it can get without technically being a playoff game. They advanced to the World Series as the National League wild-card team in 2007.
