The Dodgers and Rockies will meet Monday in Los Angeles, with the victor taking the division and the loser playing either the Milwaukee Brewers or the Chicago Cubs in the NL wild-card game Tuesday.

The victor advances to the National League Division Series, while the loser plays in the National League Wild Card Game against the loser from the Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers National League Central tiebreaker game earlier Monday.

Coming into the game, the Dodgers swept the Giants in San Francisco and the Rockies stumbled into Chavez Ravine with a tough series versus the Nationals.

Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta reacts after striking out against the Dodgers' Walker Buehler in the sixth inning on Monday at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. He last pitched September 23 and came away with a no-decision in Washington's 8-6 loss to the New York Mets after giving up five hits, four walks and three runs in 3 1/3 innings with two strikeouts. Travis Shaw added a solo homer for Milwaukee, which finished the 162-game schedule on a seven-game winning streak.

Of Colorado's 12 runs, three were driven in by Blackmon.

Speaking of the Dodgers and the Rockies, they'll play at Dodger Stadium (first pitch at 1:09) and you can catch it on ESPN. The tiebreakers are considered part of the regular season, and stats are counted accordingly.

Blackmon led off the bottom of the first inning against the Nationals with a triple and came around to score on a two-run home run by Nolan Arenado. We also saw the velocity take a little while to come back, just like previous starts where he sat in the low-90s to begin with, before getting back into the mid-90s.

The Rockies countered with one - count 'em - one hit off Buehler, a single by Charlie Blackmon to break up Buehler's no-hitter in the sixth. "We need this the whole (bleeping) playoffs", Buehler said on the field during the celebration after the game, apologizing for the profanity.

Los Angeles' two homers extended its franchise and NL-leading total to 235 on the season. He waved his right hand and quickly strode to the dugout as fans chanted his last name.

Colorado does own the fourth-best road record in the National League, however trips to Chavez Ravine are no easy task. The Rockies offense went off for double digits several times this week but those games were against subpar pitching.

Even though the Rockies are going on the road, they are keeping it simple and running out the same lineup as yesterday. The 91-year-old Hall of Famer, who managed the club to its last World Series title in 1988, wore goggles to protect his eyes from the spray of alcohol.
