The victory put the Dodgers half a game behind the Colorado Rockies for the division title, with the Rockies taking on the Washington Nationals later Saturday.

The losers of the games will face each other in the NL wild-card game on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET, ESPN), to be hosted by the team from the Central. Manager Dave Roberts waved to hundreds of fans in the outfield bleachers. The Wild-Card Game will mark the 42nd time the Cubs had to show up at the ballpark in a 43-day span, riding a brutal schedule that included rainouts, weather delays and of course, Monday's Game 163. He is also 3-3 with a 2.12 ERA at home in 12 appearances.

Colorado locked up a second straight playoff berth by beating the Nationals at home earlier Friday and the Rockies are chasing the franchise's first division title. So they'll maintain expanded rosters and all the stats count, which could be a big deal with several statistical leaders in action Monday.

The Dodgers jumped on the Giants for seven runs in the third inning en route to a 15-0 win.

Another system, about 260 miles south of Cape Hatteras, N.C., could become a tropical depression today as it moves northwestward. Gradual weakening is forecast for the next few days, but Kirk remains a threat before it breaks apart.

All four teams would certainly like to have as easy a time Monday as they did in Game 162. Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle with a triple in the first inning, a homer in the third, a single in the fifth and a double in the eighth.

The Giants and Dodgers have been extremely competitive against one another this season.

Republicans have hired an outside attorney, Phoenix prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, to handle much of their questioning. When she went upstairs to use the restroom, Kavanaugh and Judge pushed her into a bedroom and locked the door.

For the Dodgers, they will send Walker Buehler to the mound and with no disrespect to Clayton Kershaw, Buehler has been the Dodgers best pitcher this season. The Dodgers and Giants each won five games at Dodger Stadium, and have split their first eight games at AT&T Park.

He also lost a 3-1 decision in LA in June when Matt Kemp and Enrique Hernandez took him deep.

Giants lefty reliever Will Smith won the Willie Mac Award, named for the Hall of Famer and is voted on by the players, coaches and training staff to recognize the team's most inspirational player both on the field and in the clubhouse.
