Los Angeles Dodgers Defeat Colorado Rockies to Win 2018 Division Title

Los Angeles Dodgers Defeat Colorado Rockies to Win 2018 Division Title

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

The Cubs, Brewers, Dodgers and Rockies all won in blowouts Sunday, setting up a pair of tiebreaker games Monday. They would meet in a tiebreaker at Wrigley Field on Monday if they wind up with identical records, with the loser then playing in a wild-card game at home on Tuesday. The victor will go to the NL Division Series later this week, while the loser falls into the NL wild-card game on Tuesday. The tiebreakers are considered part of the regular season, and stats are counted accordingly. Max Muncy leads the Dodgers with 33 home runs this season, but the Dodgers have blasted 230 home runs as a team.

Los Angeles led 14-0 at San Francisco in the eighth inning. San Francisco scored four runs in the ninth inning at Dodger Stadium for the decisive victory of a three-game tiebreaker series for the 1962 pennant.

Walker Buehler was set to start for the Dodgers (91-71) as the defending NL champions try for a sixth straight West title.

John Merelli, who works at a hotel on the island, said local people helped with the rescue effort within minutes of the crash. A Papua New Guinean plane has sunk in a lagoon after overshooting the runway in the Federated States of Micronesia.

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

It might not have quite the same drain as the opening rounds of the NCAA tournament, but Monday's one-game divisional playoffs are going to put a serious dent in workplace productivity. The Dodgers will be looking to complete the three-game series sweep after winning the first two games of this series. Davis, however, was getting attention for a different reason Sunday.

As for the rules governing the extra contests, they'll be the same as for all other games in September. His career average is.248. The victor of today's game will host the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS starting on Thursday.

Colorado traveling to Los Angeles is a big deal in the game, especially considering Colorado finished 3-6 against LA in Los Angeles in 2018, while the Dodgers have won five of their last six at home.
