Triple Crown contender Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers neared an NL Central tiebreaker with the Chicago Cubs, putting themselves in position Sunday with an 11-0 romp over the Detroit Tigers. That said, Marquez has yet to face the new look lineup for Los Angeles, who made moves to acquire several names before the trade deadline, including Manny Machado and Brian Dozier.

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 Dodgers were given a scare when closer Kenley Jansen was pounded for home runs by Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the ninth with no outs. The Brewers have yet to announce who will get the start for them, but it would not be shocking if they turned it into a bullpen game. He improved to 2-for-17. They would not trail the rest of the game.

Jansen recovered however to get the final three outs and wrap up the Dodgers sixth straight divisional title.

Colorado has made the playoffs four times since it entered Major League Baseball as an expansion team in 1993. He has been solid in September and has allowed two or fewer earned runs in four of his five starts this month. 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.
