It looks like there will be an NL West tiebreaker

Dodgers use four-run ninth inning to clinch playoff spot in 10-6 victory over Giants

Dodgers fans were out in full force at San Francisco's AT&T Park on Saturday and were rewarded with Machado's spectacular triple off a 1-2 fastball from Mark Melancon that drove home Chris Taylor and broke open a 5-5 tie. If you want to be the best, you've got to beat the best. Once Monday's playoff games are over, the Braves will know their opponent - it's whoever wins the NL West. The loser will play tomorrow against the loser of the Brewers-Cubs tiebreaker game in an elimination game.

Los Angeles, which has won the last five division crowns, will go to lefty ace Clayton Kershaw on Saturday.

They hope to do the same for a division title Sunday. "We've got to keep pace".

Bumgarner beat the Dodgers 5-2 on August 13, allowing a home run to Justin Turner among seven hits in six innings.

"Their focus is incredible", Ryu said of the defense, speaking through a translator.

Bumgarner has more career wins against the Dodgers (15) than any other team.

Walker Buehler will start on the mound for the Dodgers. Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez scored six of the Cubs' runs.

Turner followed Enrique Hernandez's third single of the night with a drive into the seats in left-center. They finished the season on a four-game losing streak.

Los Angeles can ensure a series sweep over San Francisco with a win. Roberts said "that's probably the way it looks like" when asked if that is the plan. "My suitcase was regular standard". Each team has won nine times. Smith came back this season after missing a year following Tommy John surgery. It is not yet known who the Rockies will start.

The National League Central couldn't be decided in 162 games so the Cubs and Brewers will meet for a one-game tiebreaker Monday at Wrigley Field. Nolan Arenado hit two of the Rockies five home runs, and Tyler Anderson pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings. German Marquez has posted a 2.25 ERA in his last three starts.

Hunter Pence went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts in what was likely his final game with the Giants after 6 1/2 years. The Rockies have gone 9-1 over their last 10 outings.
