The NL West victor will have home-field advantage against the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS. Los Angeles will have a rested bullpen for the game, and will start right-hander Walker Buehler. He completely shut down the Rockies lineup, allowing just one hit in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

Muncy then doubled the Dodgers lead in the fifth with another two-run blast before Buehler's RBI in the sixth made it 5-0. After Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal struck out, Bellinger connected on a 1-0 pitch from German Marquez (14-11). The two homers raised Jansen's home runs allowed total to 13, seven more than his previous high in a season. The long ball was Muncy's team-leading 36th of the season, which absolutely no one could have predicted before the start of the season.

These aren't elimination games - the losers will end up as the NL wild cards - but there will still be some pressure, since the division winners head straight to the Division Series.

A side letter published along with the main text of the agreement exempts a percentage of eligible auto exports from tariffs. But Baskin said that some, like him, think the situation was mishandled from the start, despite their relief on Monday.

Maeda came on with one out and a runner on first, and retired the two batters he faced on a groundout and strikeout. "Being able to win despite having to fight through, this is a lesson we'll carry over into the postseason", he said. The Dodgers and Rockies were tied for the NL West lead while the Cubs and Brewers were tied for the NL Central lead. 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. There is a lot of hope in Denver that the Rockies can make the World Series for the first time since getting swept by the Boston Red Sox in 2007.

The Colorado Rockies' Charlie Blackmon completed a cycle by hitting an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday. In the early game, the Brewers went in to Wrigley Field and shut down the Cubs 3-1 to win their first division title since 2011.

As of now, the official death toll is 844 people. "We will start the mass burial of victims, to avoid the spread of disease". Indonesia's Directorate General of Corrections said that inmates escaped from three over-capacity detention facilities.

The Dodgers won their fifth consecutive game against the Rockies going back to September 9 and won the season series 13-7. The third pre-wild-card tiebreaker victor, the 1980 Astros, lost to the Phillies in the NLCS.

Anthony Rizzo homered for Chicago's lone run. He is hitting.323 in his first season with Milwaukee, locking up the first batting title in Brewers' history. The last NL player to win the Triple Crown was Joe Medwick in 1937 for the Cardinals.

Yelich has 109 RBIs, tied with Colorado's Nolan Arenado and two behind leader Javier Baez of the Cubs. Miguel Cabrera did it for Detroit in 2012.
