Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler (21) celebrates with catcher Yasmani Grandal (9) following the victory against the Colorado Rockies in the National League West division tiebreaker game at Dodger Stadium.
The Rockies, who are in thepostseason in back-to-back years for the first time in franchise history, will attempt to keep their season alive Tuesday night at Chicago's Wrigley Field against the Cubs in the NL wild-card game.
Joc Pederson is 3-for-10 with two homers versus Marquez, who is 2-0 with a 3.19 ERA in five career starts against the Dodgers. The rookie finished the season with a 2.15 ERA against the Rockies over 37 2/3 innings and a 2.62 ERA overall in 137 1/3 innings.
Yasiel Puig will start in place of the heavy-hitting Matt Kemp, while Kike Hernadez will get the start at second place and bat eighth over the veteran Brian Dozier, who hit a big two-run homer yesterday. Travis Shaw added a solo homer for Milwaukee, which finished the 162-game schedule on a seven-game winning streak. Yesterday, Jansen allowed two ninth-inning homers to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story.
In a surprising twist, Nats manager Davey Martinez revealed after the Saturday's game that Erick Fedde will start on Sunday. They can take this game.

May her soul RIP. "My deepest condolences to the family". "Om Shanti", Anupam Kher wrote on the microblogging site. The eldest member of the Kapoor family passed away due to a cardiac arrest this morning, on October 1.
Blackmon tripled in the first inning then homered in the third, crossing off two of the toughest parts of the cycle. We also saw the velocity take a little while to come back, just like previous starts where he sat in the low-90s to begin with, before getting back into the mid-90s.
Buehler's only slip-up came on the field after the game when he let loose with an inadvertent expletive, having been handed the mic after fans demanded to hear from him.
Buehler even helped himself offensively, hitting a single in the sixth for his first professional RBI and extending the Dodgers' lead to 5-0.
The Rockies forced their way into that playoff for the NL West title by routing Washington 12-0 on Sunday.
Bellinger got the Dodgers on the board with his 25th homer in the fourth, a two-out shot to left that made it 2-0. In five games he has 48 strikeouts and eight earned runs while going 33.2 innings.
If the Dodgers win the NLDS, they will not have home-field advantage anymore in the playoffs unless the Rockies make it to the NLCS.
