The victor will be National League West Division Champs and host the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS on Thursday, while the loser gets the wild card and will play the loser of the Chicago Cubs-Milwaukee Brewers in the Wild Card Game on Tuesday.

The Dodgers played their first tiebreaker since 1980, when they lost to Houston for the division title.

The Rockies will head to Chicago on Tuesday to face the Cubs in the wild card game, with the victor advancing to a series against the Milwaukee Brewers.

"I'm not going to do the Jon Gray big game show again", Shapiro started his podcast by saying.

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.

The defending NL champion Dodgers became the first major league team to win six straight division crowns since the Yankees captured nine AL East titles in a row from 1998-2006.

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

Ryan Braun supplied two hits, two runs and two RBIs, while Orlando Arcia also drove in two runs.

Cubs 10, Cardinals 5: Chicago kept alive its hopes for a third straight NL Central title, defeating visiting St. Louis.


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.

After manager Mike Scioscia announced he was stepping down, his team beat Oakland to win the season finale at Anaheim. He threw 93 pitches while striking out three and walking three. Shohei Ohtani led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a single to center off Chris Hatcher (3-3).

Kershaw isn't the only one on the squad celebrating Buehler's poise.

Buehler is 7-5 with a 2.76 ERA and 0-1 with a 2.61 ERA in five starts against Colorado.

The Dodgers fell out of the division lead with a loss Wednesday at Arizona before taking all three from the injury-plagued Giants to close out the final weekend of the regular season. The tiebreakers are considered part of the regular season, and stats are counted accordingly. Brian Dozier, Max Muncy, and Austin Barnes hit home runs, while lefty Rich Hill went seven shutout innings and giving up only two hits.

Noah Syndergaard tossed his first career shutout as host NY topped Miami.

But give Mahomes credit for orchestrating a great comeback win.

Fedde (2-3, 5.24 ERA) will be opposed by left-hander Tyler Anderson (6-9, 4.76).
