The regular season is scheduled to end Sunday - if Los Angeles and Colorado finish even, there will be a one-game tiebreaker for the West title Monday at Dodger Stadium. The victor of the NL Central tiebreaker would host the victor of the NL Wild Card game.

"Not how we scripted it", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Wednesday's second consecutive loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, which dropped LA into second place.

The wild-card game will be hosted by the NL Central runner-up - the Chicago Cubs or Milwaukee.

Nolan Arenado - 3-10 against Buehler but no home runs or runs batted in. Instead, the teams enter Sunday tied atop the division.

The Rockies will throw German Marquez at the Dodgers who has had success against the Dodger blue in 2018.

Hunter Pence went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts in what was likely his final game with the Giants after 6 1/2 years.

With the uncertainty of the playoff scenarios, the Dodgers aren't sure where they will go after Sunday's regular-season finale.

Los Angeles fans want another World Series trip and this time, we want to see the Dodgers win it all.

The pending free agent has responded with seven hits in 21 at-bats this week, with two doubles and a home run. "I know the seven guys behind me will make plays".

The Brewers likewise got out to an early lead, getting two in the first inning before rolling to an 11-0 win over the Tigers. Yasiel Puig helped the Dodgers earn a 5-2 win when these two teams last met on September 19.

Suarez has not pitched almost as well in September, going 1-3.

Dodgers: Kershaw (9-5, 2.53 ERA) has yet to beat the Giants this season in three previous starts.

Giants lefty reliever Will Smith won the Willie Mac Award, named for the Hall of Famer and is voted on by the players, coaches and training staff to recognize the team's most inspirational player both on the field and in the clubhouse.
