Dodgers rout Rockies, extend winning streak

The Milwaukee Brewers and Los Angeles Dodgers have a chance at division championships on Sunday. More

The loser plays again Tuesday night, hosting the runner-up in the NL West in the wild-card game.

"Charlie is a really hard worker and we understand how much work he puts in", Carlos Gonzalez said.

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 right-hander struck out three and walked three. "Being able to win despite having to fight through, this is a lesson we'll carry over into the postseason", he said.

It didn't get any better from there, on the field or on social media where fans lit up the former Rockies first-round draft pick for not coming through in another "big game setting". Marquez struck out Muncy, but the high fastball glanced off catcher Tony Wolter's glove for a passed ball and Muncy reached first.

The Brewers stretched the lead to 3-1 shortly afterwards when Ryan Braun drove to centre-field for an RBI single that brought Santana home.

Then, LA added an insurance run when Enrique Hernandez hit a ground-rule double and then Walker Buehler scored him with a single for the 5-0 lead.

Joc Pederson doubled to deep right-center leading off the fifth. In fact, they have been one of the best teams in recent years. For the first time in his career, Jansen finished the season with an ERA above 3.00 and also worked with an ERA+ lower than anything since 2014.

"Nobody knows if I'm going to be back or nobody knows if I am going to be in a different uniform", said the 2015 NL MVP, who turns 26 next month. The Brewers will host the wild-card victor starting Thursday in the best-of-five Division Series.

Yasiel Puig will start in place of the heavy-hitting Matt Kemp, while Kike Hernadez will get the start at second place and bat eighth over the veteran Brian Dozier, who hit a big two-run homer yesterday.

Anthony Rizzo homered for Chicago's lone run. The tiebreakers were game 163 of the regular season and Arenado's homer counted in the totals. He has, however, given up home runs to five Dodgers, all of whom could be in the lineup tomorrow.

Joe Medwick in 1937 was the last NL player to win the Triple Crown.

The Dodgers swept three from San Francisco over the weekend while scoring 28 runs, including 15 on Sunday, and Colorado won nine of its last 10 contests after a 12-0 rout of Washington in Sunday's finale. Miguel Cabrera did it for Detroit in 2012.
