  • NL Central tiebreaker game set for Monday

The Rockies and Dodgers had set up a decisive tie-breaker game for the NL West title after finishing the regular season level with identical 91-71 records on Sunday. The Dodgers were named the hosts due to their head-to-head record against the Rockies this season, going 12-7 with 6 of those wins being at home. Chicago hosts Milwaukee on Monday afternoon, and the victor gets a spot in the division series and home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs. The Dodgers and Rockies were tied for the NL West lead while the Cubs and Brewers were tied for the NL Central lead.

Here are three takeaways from the Dodgers' Game 163 win.

Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76 ERA) gets the start for the Dodgers and getting scratched from Sunday's outing.

The Dodgers became the first team to win six consecutive division titles since the New York Yankees, who won nine consecutive AL East titles from 1998-2006. Brian Dozier, Max Muncy, and Austin Barnes hit home runs, while lefty Rich Hill went seven shutout innings and giving up only two hits.

The Dodgers swept three from San Francisco over the weekend while scoring 28 runs, including 15 on Sunday, and Colorado won nine of its last 10 contests after a 12-0 rout of Washington in Sunday's finale.

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. As the punchless Rockies discovered on a hot Monday afternoon in Los Angeles, Buehler might already be there. That was the first hit allowed by six Oakland relievers and the first hit by the Angels since the third inning. His performance on Monday will count towards his regular season stats.

The Dodgers added a run in the sixth on an RBI single by Buehler. Manager Bud Black is still going with David Dahl in the three spot, even though he's a different hitter away from Coors Field.

Allen Webster (1-0), the first of eight Chicago relievers after Mike Montgomery was pulled in the third, got two outs for the win. He ended up missing five games.

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. They have a risky top end of their lineup with the likes of Freeman and Markakis, as every playoff team will, but the Dodgers will be a heavy favorite with an overwhelming lineup top-to-bottom.
