Charlie Blackmon hits for the cycle

The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers have a chance at division championships on Sunday. More

The victor advances to the National League Division Series, while the loser plays in the National League Wild Card Game against the loser from the Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers National League Central tiebreaker game earlier Monday. The Rockies, on the other hand, will play the loser of the NL Central tiebreaker in the NL Wild Card Game. There have been plenty of games this season that could've gone Colorado's way, including an 8-5 loss in Los Angeles on August 9 where the Dodgers came back late to win.

The Los Angeles Dodgers entered game 163 for all the division marbles versus the Colorado Rockies.

Blackmon tripled in the first, homered in the third and singled in the fifth to help Colorado make quick work of the Nationals and force an extra game for the division crown. Dahl has six home runs in his last seven games and 15 RBI's.

Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story hit ninth-inning back-to-back home runs for the Rockies off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen. The Dodgers have a better team ERA (3.41) than Colorado (4.36) but the Rockies have a better team batting average (.256) compared to the Dodgers'.249 average.

Manny Machado, Matt Kemp and Max Muncy all joined the hit parade as Los Angeles left nothing to chance in Game No. 162. The 24-year-old Kentucky native, who owns 148 strikeouts over 130 2/3 innings, held Arizona to two runs over six innings in his last start and has lost only once since August 1 - at Colorado on September 8.

The Dodgers added a run in the sixth on an RBI single by Buehler.

Milwaukee hasn't announced a starting pitcher for Monday's 163rd regular season game. We also saw the velocity take a little while to come back, just like previous starts where he sat in the low-90s to begin with, before getting back into the mid-90s.

Allen Webster (1-0), the first of eight Chicago relievers after Mike Montgomery was pulled in the third, got two outs for the win.

Dodgers rookie Buehler produced a pitching masterclass to keep the Rockies offense in a vice-like grip and provide the platform for his team's formidable hitting line-up in an emphatic win at Dodger Stadium. Marquez struck out four batters in that inning, but he also gave up a big two-run home run to Cody Bellinger that allowed Los Angeles to take a 2-0 lead.

Francisco Lindor hit a home run, and Carlos Carrasco pitched five strong innings as Cleveland ended the regular season with a victory at Kansas City. 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.
