Once Monday's playoff games are over, the Braves will know their opponent - it's whoever wins the NL West.

If you're looking past the NLDS already, now is the time to register for NL Championship Series tickets. "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 Rockies will head to Chicago on Tuesday to face the Cubs in the wild card game, with the victor advancing to a series against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Right-handed pitcher German Marquez (14-10, 3.76) will start for the Rockies.

The game started with a lighter crowd than anticipated as typical Los Angeles traffic prevented fans from getting to the game until the 3rd inning. The Rockies offense went off for double digits several times this week but those games were against subpar pitching. Buehler has held the Rockies hitless through five.

Muncy then doubled the Dodgers lead in the fifth with another two-run blast before Buehler's RBI in the sixth made it 5-0. He completely shut down the Rockies lineup, allowing just one hit in 6 2/3 scoreless innings. San Francisco scored four runs in the ninth inning at Dodger Stadium for the decisive victory of a three-game tiebreaker series for the 1962 pennant.

Hear from inside the clubhouse as Rox Pile Co-Editor Kevin Henry caught up with Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black, stars like Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado and tomorrow's starter Kyle Freeland. They had ace Max Scherzer slated to start the final game of the season at Colorado. Colorado's bats never came alive against Buehler while Marquez allowed four runs (two earned) in 4 2/3 innings on the mound. The victor of Monday's matchup will clinch the division title and advance to National League Divisional Series against the Braves with home-field advantage.
