Previewing Game 163 for the NL West Title

The Rockies will throw German Marquez at the Dodgers who has had success against the Dodger blue in 2018.

The victor of this tie-breaker gets the next two days off before facing the team that wins the Wild Card playoff in the National League Division Series on Thursday. The Rockies have never won the NL West. Bucky Dent's pop-fly homer finished off the Red Sox in 1978.

The Brewers-Cubs victor gets to start the best-of-five Division Series at home on Thursday against the wild card victor.

"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. Defending World Series champion Houston opens the ALDS against Cleveland. The Rockies shut out the Nationals in front of the home crowd, 12-0. They had ace Max Scherzer slated to start the final game of the season at Colorado.

The loser of the NL West championship game faces the loser between the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs, who are also playing for a division championship on Monday.

Jose Quintana was scheduled to start for the Cubs, while the Brewers had yet to name a starting pitcher as of Sunday evening. 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.

Yelich is hitting.323 in his first season with Milwaukee, sealing the first batting title in Brewers' history.

Colorado's Nolan Arenado went deep twice Sunday, giving him an NL-most 37, and Manny Machado takes a nine-game hitting streak (12-for-36) into the contest for Los Angeles, which has won 12 of 19 games in the season series.
