The Rockies rallied in the top of the ninth, but it was too little too late as the Dodgers held on for a 5-2 win in the NL West tiebreaker Monday.
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. The loser plays again Tuesday night, hosting the runner-up in the NL West in the wild-card game. The Rockies will counter with German Marquez (14-10, 3.76 ERA), who struck out eight straight to begin his last start. Game 163, as it turned out, was a big letdown for the Rockies, who have still not won a division title in their 26 years of existence.
Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76 ERA) gets the start for the Dodgers and getting scratched from Sunday's outing.
The Dodgers are facing off Monday afternoon with the Colorado Rockies in a tie-breaker game at Dodger Stadium to determine the National League West champion.
It wasn't the first time Major League Baseball needed to add an extra contest to its 162-game schedule to decide which team would be a division champ. Two of those RBIs came on a towering home run deep left field that put the Nats 5-0 up in the second inning. Dahl has six home runs in his last seven games and 15 RBI's.
Blackmon's cycle was the first by a Colorado player since Nolan Arenado completed one by hitting a game-ending home run against the San Francisco Giants June 18, 2017.

It had maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph) and was moving westward at 18 miles per hour (30 kph). Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles, mostly north and east of the centre.
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. He tripled in the first, homered in the third, singled in the fifth and struck out in the sixth.
Anthony Rizzo scored three runs and went 4-for-4 with two doubles, two singles, one RBI and one walk to lead the Cubs' offense. That was the first hit allowed by six Oakland relievers and the first hit by the Angels since the third inning.
"We are going to the playoffs tomorrow, and that's an wonderful opportunity", Blackmon said. Milwaukee beat the Cubs, 3-1, Monday in a tiebreaker game to capture the NL Central crown.
Buehler did not allow Colorado to record a hit until there was one out in the sixth.
Marquez gave up four runs - two earned - and five hits in 4 2/3 innings. They have a unsafe top end of their lineup with the likes of Freeman and Markakis, as every playoff team will, but the Dodgers will be a heavy favorite with an overwhelming lineup top-to-bottom.
