Walker Buehler, Dodgers top Rockies for sixth straight N.L. West title

Los Angeles took a two-run lead over the Rockies in the fourth inning and tallied two more one frame later.

The Dodgers won their fifth consecutive game against the Rockies going back to September 9 and won the season series 13-7. He allowed only one hit over 6 2/3 innings and even drove in a run of his own at the plate.

The victor of the Cubs-Brewers tiebreaker will host the wild-card victor in the best-of-five-game National League Division Series, starting Thursday.

Los Angeles are set to take on the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series (NLDS).

The 24-year-old right hander was brilliant for Los Angeles in game 163. The right-hander walked three with three strikeouts.

Buehler did not allow Colorado to record a hit until there was one out in the sixth.

Cody Bellinger was one-for-16 in his career against Rockies starter German Marquez entering his at-bat in the fourth inning.

Marquez is 14-10 with a 3.76 ERA and 2-0 with a 2.57 ERA in five starts against the Dodgers. They would not trail the rest of the game.

Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler and the bullpen maintained a shutout through eight innings, with the Rockies able to squeak out a couple of runs in the final inning. The Dodgers had never won more than two consecutive division titles before the current run.

Despite being loaded at talent seemingly everywhere, the team simply couldn't piece together a run at another playoff berth and will head home following their matchup against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Colorado have made the playoffs four times since they entered Major League Baseball as an expansion team in 1993.

The first team to win three games in the division series will advance to the best-of-seven-game National League Championship Series against the victor of the other two-team division series.
