  • NL Central tiebreaker game set for Monday

The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers won Game 163 tiebreaker games to decide who won their respective divisions and who would have to play in the winner-take-all Wild Card games.

The victor advances to host the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the opener of the best-of-five Division Series on Thursday and the loser settles for playing in the Wild Card Game on Tuesday at the Milwaukee Brewers or the Chicago Cubs.

The Rockies, who are in thepostseason in back-to-back years for the first time in franchise history, will attempt to keep their season alive Tuesday night at Chicago's Wrigley Field against the Cubs in the NL wild-card game. After Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal struck out, Bellinger connected on a 1-0 pitch from German Marquez (14-11).

Walker Buehler (2.62 ERA) capped off an excellent debut season by pitching 6 2/3 shutout innings yesterday; Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger hit their 35th and 25th home runs of the season, respectively, and the Dodgers finish the season 92-71.

Walker Buehler stifled the Colorado Rockies as the Los Angeles Dodgers unleashed their hitting power in a division-clinching 5-2 tiebreaker victory on Monday.

Under the new agreement, three-quarters of a car's parts must originate from North America in order to be exempt from duties. In Ottawa, PMO officials said there would be another cabinet meeting Monday and a news conference likely as well.

Los Angeles looks to capture its sixth-straight NL West title. Buehler took a no-hitter into the sixth before Charlie Blackmon broke it up, and the Rockies couldn't get on the board until hitting back to back solo home runs against Dodger closer Kenley Jansen in the 9th, which was too little too late. David Dahl homered for the sixth time in seven games. He had 110 RBIs, one behind the Cubs' Javier Baez, and finished with 36 home runs, two shy of Colorado's Nolan Arenado.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Justin Turner and free-swinging Los Angeles are headed for a one-game showdown against Colorado, jumping on San Francisco from the start in a win for a weekend sweep. 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. That was the first hit allowed by six Oakland relievers and the first hit by the Angels since the third inning. However, several Rockies said after the game that that was just a step in the season and Shapiro argues that Colorado should celebrate every postseason berth, even if there is more on the line.

"We are going to the playoffs tomorrow, and that's an fantastic opportunity", Blackmon said. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts subbed many of his starters to get them rest and also use some of his reserves so they got some at-bats before Monday. Jason Heyward added an RBI single.

The Rockies forced their way into that playoff for the NL West title by routing Washington 12-0 on Sunday. CarGo has had a nice bounce-back season after last year's season to forget.
