Victor takes the NL West: Previewing Dodgers, Rockies game No. 163

That means two games Monday, both on ESPN, with the first starting at 12:05pm CT and the second at 3:09pm.

Hear from inside the clubhouse as Rox Pile Co-Editor Kevin Henry caught up with Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black, stars like Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado and tomorrow's starter Kyle Freeland.

Kershaw has pitched in 11 NLDS games (10 starts) in his career, going 4-3 while posting a 4.18 ERA and 1.10 WHIP.

The loser will play either the Cubs or Brewers in the NL Wild Card Game, who, guess what, will also be playing a Game 163 Monday for the NL Central title. He struck out 89 while only walking 15 in 82.1 innings.


Buehler did not allow Colorado to record a hit until there was one out in the sixth. "He throws good cutters, good curveball", David Dahl said Sunday night after the Rockies 12-0 win over the Washington Nationals to clinch a game No. 163. We've been battling back and forth for the last few years now.

First baseman Max Muncy followed with another two-run homer off of Marquez in the fifth to help the Dodgers put the game out of reach.

As familiar as the Cubs and Brewers are with one another, Monday's game will hold extra significance.

Last season, the Rockies lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix and were bounced without hosting a playoff game. He completely shut down the Rockies lineup, allowing just one hit in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.


Both pitchers are sure to have their hands full Monday night when high-octane offenses go swinging for the fences with the division on the line.

Colorado does own the fourth-best road record in the National League, however trips to Chavez Ravine are no easy task.

For the Dodgers, they will send Walker Buehler to the mound and with no disrespect to Clayton Kershaw, Buehler has been the Dodgers best pitcher this season.
