The Rockies and Dodgers had set up a decisive tie-breaker game for the NL West title after finishing the regular season level with identical 91-71 records on Sunday.

These aren't elimination games - the losers will end up as the NL wild cards - but there will still be some pressure, since the division winners head straight to the Division Series. The 5-2 victory sends the Rockies to Chicago for the Wild Card against the Cubs, as the Dodgers will get to enjoy the friendly confines of Chavez Ravine for the rest of the week. The Rockies will counter with German Marquez, who struck out eight straight to begin his last start.

If the Dodgers win the wild card game, they would face the NL Central champion in a division series, beginning Thursday on the road.

Blackmon tripled in the first, homered in the third and singled in the fifth to help Colorado make quick work of the Nationals and force an extra game for the division crown. Buehler took a no-hitter into the sixth before Charlie Blackmon broke it up, and the Rockies couldn't get on the board until hitting back to back solo home runs against Dodger closer Kenley Jansen in the 9th, which was too little too late. Dahl has six home runs in his last seven games and 15 RBI's. Yesterday, Jansen allowed two ninth-inning homers to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Justin Turner and free-swinging Los Angeles are headed for a one-game showdown against Colorado, jumping on San Francisco from the start in a win for a weekend sweep.

The Dodgers added a run in the sixth on an RBI single by Buehler. In regular season games during September and October, his ERA is now 1.88 to go with a 16-3 record.

"We are going to the playoffs tomorrow, and that's an wonderful opportunity", Blackmon said. "We need this the whole (bleeping) playoffs", Buehler said on the field during the celebration after the game, apologizing for the profanity. He went 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA in two starts against the Brewers during that span. He ended up missing five games.

The Dodgers played their first tiebreaker since 1980, when they lost to Houston for the division title.

J.D. Martinez hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning, and host Boston concluded the best regular season in team history with a victory over NY. CarGo has had a nice bounce-back season after last year's season to forget.
