They won a wild card in 2007 by beating San Diego in a one-game playoff.

The Giants moved Madison Bumgarner back just to start against the Dodgers on Friday, despite the fact that the series is completely meaningless to them.

After finishing the 162-game schedule with matching records (95-67) and in a first-place tie atop the Central, the division title and the ability to avoid playing in a one-game wild-card playoff game will be determined by a Monday meeting at Wrigley Field.

Colorado's new strikeout king, German Marquez, will head to the hill against Walker Buehler and the Dodgers on Monday. "2018 - the big party is here in Los Angeles".

Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy both blasted two-run homers for the Dodgers while Buehler capped a superb individual display by uncorking an RBI single which allowed Kike Hernandez to scramble home for a 5-0 lead in the sixth inning. He finished the regular-season with an 8-5 record and a 2.62 ERA. The critical hit was part of a four-run inning for the Cubs, in which they scored all four runs with two outs.

Bellinger blasted a fastball from Marquez over the right-field fence to put the Dodgers ahead 2-0.


As for the rules governing the extra contests, they'll be the same as for all other games in September. Marquez has been excellent at Dodger Stadium this year, only giving up two earned runs in 15 innings this season.

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

The Colorado Rockies can still win their first ever National League West title.

The Rockies have a much happier (and shorter) history with these games.

The Rockies have had playoff success despite never winning their division.
