The victor hosts Atlanta in a best-of-five Division Series starting Thursday; the loser is on the road for the NL wild-card game Tuesday against the loser of Monday's Brewers-Cubs NL Central tiebreaker.

The Rockies went on to defeat the Nationals 12-0.

The Dodgers fell out of the division lead with a loss Wednesday at Arizona before taking all three from the injury-plagued Giants to close out the final weekend of the regular season. Both the Cubs and Rockies played later games.

The Brewers will be at the Cubs after the two tied for the National League Central title, and the Rockies will travel to the Dodgers to decide the National League West championship. Chicago hosts Milwaukee on Monday afternoon, and the victor gets a spot in the division series and home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.

Two of the teams to win a one-game tiebreaker prior to the wild-card era went on to win the World Series, but the 1978 Yankees had to win only one series before the World Series, and the 1948 Indians moved right to the World Series after beating the Red Sox for the AL pennant. Matt Holliday slid home - and maybe touched the plate - to eliminate San Diego in 2007.

The tiebreaker losers play Tuesday at the NL Central's site to determine who advances.

"All the teams in the playoffs are really good". The victor will also receive home-field advantage against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. The Rockies will counter with German Marquez (14-10, 3.76 ERA), who struck out eight straight to begin his last start.

The Dodgers topped Colorado 12-7 in the season series.

The Chicago Cubs have clinched their fourth straight postseason berth, getting into the playoffs when Milwaukee beat St. Louis. Milwaukee won its seventh in a row, trouncing Detroit 11-0. He's looking forward to getting booed when his name is announced at Dodger Stadium.
