Dodgers, Rockies To Face Off In Tie-Breaker For NL West Title

Dodgers, Rockies To Face Off In Tie-Breaker For NL West Title

It's a scenario that hasn't been kind to them over the years.

The loser will play either the Cubs or Brewers in the NL Wild Card Game, who, guess what, will also be playing a Game 163 Monday for the NL Central title.

The winners of the respective contests will be crowned division champs, while the losers will turn around to play in the Wild Card game the following evening. The tiebreakers are considered part of the regular season, and stats are counted accordingly.

As familiar as the Cubs and Brewers are with one another, Monday's game will hold extra significance. That said, Marquez has yet to face the new look lineup for Los Angeles, who made moves to acquire several names before the trade deadline, including Manny Machado and Brian Dozier. "He throws good cutters, good curveball", David Dahl said Sunday night after the Rockies 12-0 win over the Washington Nationals to clinch a game No. 163.

The Rockies have a much happier (and shorter) history with these games.

The Cubs won the NL wild card in 1998 by beating San Francisco 5-3 in a one-game playoff. The Dodgers got home-field advantage for the tie-breaker after winning the season series against Colorado, 12-7. His career average is.248.

Colorado does own the fourth-best road record in the National League, however trips to Chavez Ravine are no easy task.

If the Rockies win Tuesday, they'll begin the NLDS Thursday at Milwaukee. The postseason will be a chance for a wide audience to see star rookie Ronald Acuna Jr., who showed off his talent Sunday with a leaping catch high against the wall in left field on a drive by Philadelphia's Carlos Santana.

The Rockies have still yet to win a division title.

Charlie Blackmon -.267 batting average against Buehler with one home run and three RBI's. The game will air on ESPN and first pitch is set for 6 p.m.
