Buehler leads Dodgers past Rockies

NL Central tiebreaker game set for Monday MLB playoffs: Los Angeles Dodgers/Colorado Rockies, game 163 thread

Not only the Dodgers NL West bragging rights, but they also advance to the best-of-five NLDS against the Atlanta Braves with home-field advantage.

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.

But with the starting pitching and lineup as devastating as it is, there's a risky team in Los Angeles, one that's hungrier than ever. Monday's losers will be back on the field Tuesday, forced to face off in the single-game elimination NL Wild-Card Game.

Anthony Rizzo homered for Chicago's lone run.

Ryan Braun supplied two hits, two runs and two RBIs, while Orlando Arcia also drove in two runs. Dahl has six home runs in his last seven games and 15 RBI's. This year, however, Chicago was competing with the Milwaukee Brewers and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Buehler even helped himself offensively, hitting a single in the sixth for his first professional RBI and extending the Dodgers' lead to 5-0.

Take nothing away from Chiefs quarterback Pat Mahomes, who's an early favorite for MVP honors after leading KC to two late touchdown drives in a span of twelve minutes in the fourth quarter, erasing a 20-13 deficit and winning the game on a four yard Kareem Hunt rush into the end zone with less than two minutes to go.

After manager Mike Scioscia announced he was stepping down, his team beat Oakland to win the season finale at Anaheim. The right-hander struck out three and walked three. Cody Bellinger will be manning center field today and hitting sixth behind catcher Yasmani Grandal.

Jimmy Yacabonis, Paul Fry and Mychal Givens combined for a one-hit shutout as Baltimore defeated visiting Houston. Every team in both the NL and AL has a better record than the Dodgers except for Cleveland who finished with the same overall record but more victories within the division.

But bad calls are nothing new to the NFL, part and parcel with the league's decisions on everything from domestic violence to the health of its own players to fumbled responses the exercising of first amendment rights, so missing a critical call at a pivotal moment in a regular season game kind of pales in comparison.

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

Pablo Reyes tripled and scored on a the 10th-inning wild pitch to give Pittsburgh a win at Cincinnati.

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