Cody Bellinger, Max Muncy power Dodgers to division-clinching win

The victor at Wrigley gets a spot in the division series and home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.

The soft-spoken 24-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky, has been so steady of late that manager Dave Roberts had no qualms about giving Buehler the ball for the crucial game that helped decide the Dodgers' postseason fate. The Dodgers are 2-3 against the Rockies when Buehler starts against them.

Should the Rockies win the NLDS, they will face either the Atlanta Braves or the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series.

The silky-smooth slugger stalled in his bid for the league's first Triple Crown in decades, but he starred once again as the Brew Crew captured the biggest prize of the day.

For the Dodgers, these not-quite-postseason games have been fraught with peril.

With all the depth they have, the Dodgers are switching things up today.

Cesar Hernandez's first-pitch home run set the tone, and eight Philadelphia pitchers scattered four total hits in a win over visiting Atlanta.

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.

Hurricane Rosa to Drench Mexico, US Southwest
The center of Rosa was expected to approach Baja California Monday, but is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm by that point. The center of the Category 3 storm was 625 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, the NHC said in its 2 p.m.

No such luxury for the Colorado Rockies, who had to board a plane from Los Angeles to the Windy City right after their 5-2 loss to the Dodgers last night.

Taylor Ward belted a two-run, walk-off home run as the Angels scored three times in the ninth inning.

Milwaukee opened the scoring in the third inning when star slugger Christian Yelich singled to center field to send Orlando Arcia home.

Bellinger got the Dodgers on the board with his 25th homer in the fourth, a two-out shot to left that made it 2-0.

The MLB regular season has come to an end; unless you're a fan of the Rockies, the Dodgers, the Brewers or the Cubs. The only change is Tony Wolters getting the start behind the plate in place of Chris Iannetta. Blackmon, LeMahieu, and the red-hot David Dahl will be at the top. Travis Shaw added a solo homer for Milwaukee, which finished the 162-game schedule on a seven-game winning streak. It was Arenado's NL-leading 38th, while Story hit his 37th. CarGo has had a nice bounce-back season after last year's season to forget. They went 14-4 over the last three weeks of the season. Rounding out the lineup will be Ian Desmond, who has also had a nice bounce-back season, Wolters, and Marquez, who for a pitcher is also a decent hitter in his own right.

The National League was a horse race. He's now hitting.413 nine games there with three homers and 17 RBI and an OPS way north of 1.200.

The Rockies were on a roll coming into the club's second tiebreaker and first for the NL West title, having won nine of 10 since being swept at Dodger Stadium from September 17-19.
