The NL Will Have Two One-Game Playoff Games For The First Time Ever

NL Central tiebreaker game set for Monday

For the first time in history, MLB's regular season will conclude with two different tiebreakers, a thrilling conclusion to a topsy-turvy year across the National League. "We need this the whole (bleeping) playoffs", Buehler said on the field during the celebration after the game, apologizing for the profanity. Buehler has a 2.22 ERA in 12 starts since the All-Star break. Sunday's games will certainly be games to watch, and in all honesty, a tiebreaker would be the ideal intense capper on this wild season.

Los Angeles bombed Giants starter Andrew Suarez (7-13) for two runs in the first inning, then added seven more in the third against Suarez and reliever Hunter Strickland.

If the Dodgers win, they'll get two days off before they face the National League East champion Atlanta Braves in a best-of-five NL Divisional Series that will start Thursday at Dodger Stadium. Walker Buehler was dominant from the second the game started and the offense, albeit taking a few innings to find their groove, looked really good. While both teams have clinched spots in the playoffs, the Wild Card berth still must be decided, and neither team wants to play in a one-game playoff (or a tiebreaker game). The young star was incredible in his last outing against the Philadelphia Phillies, striking out the first eight batters he faced, and setting Colorado's single season record for strikeouts. The right-hander walked three with three strikeouts. Buehler's incredible performance should give the team confidence that the 24-year old will be a reliable piece to the postseason roster, rounding out a three-man rotation consisting of Kershaw, Ryu, and Buehler in that order. The Dodgers have 40 players on their roster, including 21 pitchers.

Los Angeles' two homers extended its franchise and NL-leading total to 235 on the season.

"Today was unfortunate, but the fact of the matter is we have a chance to win the World Series", Blackmon said.

In the other one-game playoff held the same day, the Brewers beat the Cubs 3-1 for their first NL Central title since 2011. The bats were hot as Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle and Nolan Arenado hit two home runs. The Dodgers closed out the season with 25 victories in their last 35 games.

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.
