If the Rockies win Tuesday, they'll begin the NLDS Thursday at Milwaukee. With six straight postseason's under the team's belt, the Los Angeles Dodgers now own the third-longest postseason streak in Major League Baseball history.

A one-game playoff in 1980 was no better for the Dodgers, who were beaten 7-1 by Houston for the NL West championship. And because both teams atop the Central have the best records in the NL, the loser of Monday's early game will host the Wild Card. Starters Walker Buehler and Germán Márquez traded zeroes through the first three innings. But if they lose, they will be the league's second wild card team and have to travel to Wrigley Field to play the the Chicago Cubs in a second tie-breaker Tuesday night. The victor of today's game will host the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS starting on Thursday.

Marquez comes into the game 2-0 against the Dodgers this year. He finished the regular-season with an 8-5 record and a 2.62 ERA.

The Brewers then looked to Josh Hader to shut down the Cubs in the final two innings, and the All-Star pitcher duly delivered, getting the final six outs to see Milwaukee home.

Charlie Blackmon -.267 batting average against Buehler with one home run and three RBI's.

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen surrendered home runs to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the ninth before he retired the next three hitters to secure the win. Buehler last started against the Rockies on September 19th and Buehler allowed just two unearned runs in six innings while striking out a career-high twelve batters. They would not trail the rest of the game.

The Rockies forced their way into that playoff for the NL West title by routing Washington 12-0 on Sunday. Although it's not a win or go home scenario for either team, the victor will have home-field advantage in the divisional series and the loser will have to turn around and play Tuesday in the wild-card matchup.
