Tiebreakers to Decide NL Central, NL West

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 Dodgers are about to play another end-of-season tiebreaker.

The Dodgers have won 12 of 19 contests against Colorado this season.

Carabao Cup: Liverpool's Klopp unhappy with VAR v Chelsea
Jurgen Klopp criticised Liverpool's defenders for failing to shut down Eden Hazard as the forward sent Chelsea into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup in style.

Right-handed pitcher German Marquez (14-10, 3.76) will start for the Rockies. The victor will also receive home-field advantage against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. Once Monday's playoff games are over, the Braves will know their opponent - it's whoever wins the NL West.

"It's a game where obviously it's not do-or-die, but I think that it's a must-win game", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after a 15-0 rout in San Francisco. And because both teams atop the Central have the best records in the NL, the loser of Monday's early game will host the Wild Card.

Chicago hosts Milwaukee on Monday afternoon and the Colorado Rockies visit the Los Angeles Dodgers as baseball holds a pair of tiebreaker games on the same day for the first time. The Rockies shut out the Nationals in front of the home crowd, 12-0.

It was crawling west-southwest at 3 miles per hour , lifting huge amounts of ocean moisture and dumping it far from the coast. The hurricane has darkened the skies and homes of hundreds of thousands of residents of both North & South Carolina.

Update: The Nationals are trying to win today's game, even if Max Scherzer isn't on the mound.

Out of all six appearances, this one feels the most unique as the Los Angeles Dodgers are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in the 2017 World Series to the Houston Astros. Moments later, the Cubs matched Milwaukee by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 10-5 at a soggy Wrigley Field. Jose Quintana is likely to start for the Cubs, and Jhoulys Chacin is in line for the Brewers. Blackmon then drilled a two-run homer of his own in the third, singled to lead off the fifth, and completed the cycle with an RBI double in the eighth.
