Dodgers reportedly upset after Nationals decline to use Scherzer against Rockies

Dodgers use four-run ninth inning to clinch playoff spot in 10-6 victory over Giants Dodgers reportedly upset after Nationals decline to use Scherzer against Rockies

With six straight postseason's under the team's belt, the Los Angeles Dodgers now own the third-longest postseason streak in Major League Baseball history. But if they lose, they will be the league's second wild card team and have to travel to Wrigley Field to play the the Chicago Cubs in a second tie-breaker Tuesday night.

Although much has been made about the Rockies recent hot streak, it's worth noting that they have been playing non-contending teams.

Out of all six appearances, this one feels the most unique as the Los Angeles Dodgers are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in the 2017 World Series to the Houston Astros. They have now won the West in each of the last six seasons. Buehler has posted a 2.76 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in his first full big league season.

He even helped his cause at the plate with a two-out RBI single in the sixth that extended the Dodgers' lead to 5-0. Buehler has never pitched in a playoff game so this is as close as it can get without technically being a playoff game. The critical hit was part of a four-run inning for the Cubs, in which they scored all four runs with two outs. Certainly a pitcher that has the attention for the Rockies. Marquez does not have any playoff experience either so this will be his first taste of a playoff type atmosphere. He completely shut down the Rockies lineup, allowing just one hit in 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

Cody Bellinger - 1-15 against Marquez which is a.067 batting average.

It wasn't until the sixth that Buehler lost his no-hitter on Charlie Blackmon's single that found a hole in the shift up the middle.

Nolan Arenado - 3-10 against Buehler but no home runs or runs batted in.
