Top Five Times San Francisco Giants Ruined the Dodgers Season

Two divisional tiebreaker games will be played Monday after the Chicago Cubs, Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies all won Sunday, leaving the National League Central and West both deadlocked after 162 games. It's on to Game 163 for the two NL West foes.

The Cubs and Brewers also entered Sunday tied for the NL Central title at 94-67.

The Dodgers will go for a series sweep Sunday with right-hander Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76 ERA) dueling Giants rookie left-hander Andrew Suarez (7-12, 4.22).

Colorado locked up a second straight playoff berth by beating the Nationals at home earlier Friday and the Rockies are chasing the franchise's first division title.

The Dodgers (90-71) assured themselves of a sixth consecutive trip to the postseason Saturday with a 10-6 victory over the San Francisco Giants.

As it now stands, rookie Walker Buehler may be the Dodgers' best pitcher.

As for the rules governing the extra contests, they'll be the same as for all other games in September. Kemp had a two-run double and RBI single among his three hits, while Muncy and Brian Dozier each hit two-run homers. "You never know, I could come back. but it is unknown and it really was just unbelievable".

Walker Buehler has been lights out for the Dodgers lately posting a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts. The Giants will try to end a three-game skid.

Roberts packed for six days when he left Los Angeles this week, for the hot weather of Phoenix to the cool fall temperatures in San Francisco and Denver.

Because they defeated the Atlanta Braves in the regular-season series, the Dodgers will have home-field advantage against them in the NL Division Series, which begins Thursday.

Suarez has not pitched almost as well in September, going 1-3. In 26 starts, the 30-year-old went 9-5 with a 2.73 ERA, 3.19 FIP and 1.04 WHIP while striking out 155 and walking 29 in 161.1 innings.

Giants lefty reliever Will Smith won the Willie Mac Award, named for the Hall of Famer and is voted on by the players, coaches and training staff to recognize the team's most inspirational player both on the field and in the clubhouse.
