Previewing Game 163 for the NL West Title

The Rockies will throw German Marquez at the Dodgers who has had success against the Dodger blue in 2018.

Colorado does own the fourth-best road record in the National League, however trips to Chavez Ravine are no easy task. With six straight postseason's under the team's belt, the Los Angeles Dodgers now own the third-longest postseason streak in Major League Baseball history.

Out of all six appearances, this one feels the most unique as the Los Angeles Dodgers are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in the 2017 World Series to the Houston Astros. They won a wild card in 2007 by beating San Diego in a one-game playoff.

Walker Buehler has been lights out for the Dodgers lately posting a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts.

Bellinger blasted a fastball from Marquez over the right-field fence to put the Dodgers ahead 2-0.

Jansen recovered however to get the final three outs and wrap up the Dodgers sixth straight divisional title.

They have survived 40 games in 41 days, even though for a while on Sunday it looked like they were just trying to avoid having to play 41 in 42.

The Rockies entered Game 163 with a chance to change that, but they came up short.

Charlie Blackmon -.267 batting average against Buehler with one home run and three RBI's. He has been solid in September and has allowed two or fewer earned runs in four of his five starts this month.

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler (21) celebrates with catcher Yasmani Grandal (9) following the victory against the Colorado Rockies in the National League West division tiebreaker game at Dodger Stadium. Buehler has never pitched in a playoff game so this is as close as it can get without technically being a playoff game.
