Dodgers beat Rockies to claim sixth consecutive NL West title

Share

The Rockies have never won the NL West.

The Dodgers are the 2018 National League West champions. "He throws good cutters, good curveball", David Dahl said Sunday night after the Rockies 12-0 win over the Washington Nationals to clinch a game No. 163.

Colorado will travel to face the Cubs, who lost the NL Central tiebreaker to the Brewers, in the single-elimination National League wild-card game Tuesday.

The Giants moved Madison Bumgarner back just to start against the Dodgers on Friday, despite the fact that the series is completely meaningless to them.

The winners of the respective contests will be crowned division champs, while the losers will turn around to play in the Wild Card game the following evening.

The only teams better than the Los Angeles Dodgers are the 1995-2007 New York Yankees, who made 13 straight postseasons and the 1991-2005 Atlanta Braves, who made 14 straight postseasons (1994 was the strike year). He finished the regular-season with an 8-5 record and a 2.62 ERA.

The Colorado Rockies' Charlie Blackmon completed a cycle by hitting an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen surrendered home runs to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the ninth before he retired the next three hitters to secure the win.

The Brewers then looked to Josh Hader to shut down the Cubs in the final two innings, and the All-Star pitcher duly delivered, getting the final six outs to see Milwaukee home.

Walker Buehler has been lights out for the Dodgers lately posting a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts. The Brewers have yet to announce who will get the start for them, but it would not be shocking if they turned it into a bullpen game. The victor of Monday's matchup will clinch the division title and advance to National League Divisional Series against the Braves with home-field advantage.
