National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

A one-game playoff in 1980 was no better for the Dodgers, who were beaten 7-1 by Houston for the NL West championship. The Cubs and Brewers also need to break a tie for the NL Central. The most recent team, the 2013 Rays, won the wild-card game, but lost in the division series. "He throws good cutters, good curveball", David Dahl said Sunday night after the Rockies 12-0 win over the Washington Nationals to clinch a game No. 163. The loser will play tomorrow against the loser of the Brewers-Cubs tiebreaker game in an elimination game.

It's a spot that they've rarely been in their franchise's history, making Monday's Game 163 an event to behold. Central, then the Los Angeles Dodgers welcoming the Colorado Rockies to town at 4 p.m. ET. That game went 13 innings, with Colorado prevailing 9-8 when Matt Holliday may or may not have touched the plate when he was credited with the winning run.

Heading into the regular season finale, the Dodgers had Buehler penciled to start against the Giants. The Colorado-Los Angeles victor also begins the NLDS at home versus Atlanta. Once Monday's playoff games are over, the Braves will know their opponent - it's whoever wins the NL West.

Colorado, which has never won a division title since beginning play in 1993, will try to deny the defending NL champion Dodgers their sixth straight West title. Jose Quintana is likely to start for the Cubs, and Jhoulys Chacin is in line for the Brewers. Buehler, 24, had a 2.76 ERA in 130 innings this season. No matter what happens on Monday, both the Cubs and Brewers are headed to the postseason. Moments later, the Cubs matched Milwaukee by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 10-5 at a soggy Wrigley Field.
