Two words: Game 163
The Los Angeles Dodgers forced a winner-take-all Game 163 for the National League West Division after sweeping the San Francisco Giants, 15-0, on Sunday afternoon at ATT Park.
The Dodgers entered the regular season finale tied with the Colorado Rockies in the NL West, but both teams took care of business, winning their respective games to force a do or die for the division on Monday night at Dodger Stadium.
Walker Buehler was scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday, and instead will pitch in Game 163 against Colorado.
“Walker is going to start tomorrow,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced after the game. “Our goal is to win the division. Right now, he’s our best. To win this game, to win the division, it’s in our hands at home. That’s been our goal from the beginning.”
If the Dodgers defeat the Rockies on Monday, they would win their sixth consecutive NL West Division title. Colorado is in search of their first ever NL West title in franchise history.
“It would be huge,” Buehler said about helping his team win the division. “That’s the goal. It all culminates, but it’s still a regular season game. We don’t go home if we lose, and we get a day off if we win.”
