Dodgers reportedly upset after Nationals decline to use Scherzer against Rockies

Colorado will travel to face the Cubs, who lost the NL Central tiebreaker to the Brewers, in the single-elimination National League wild-card game Tuesday. Coming into the game, the Dodgers swept the Giants in San Francisco and the Rockies stumbled into Chavez Ravine with a tough series versus the Nationals. The critical hit was part of a four-run inning for the Cubs, in which they scored all four runs with two outs. 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. The Rockies offense went off for double digits several times this week but those games were against subpar pitching. Their lead to that point was built on a pair of two-run home runs by Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy.

The Cubs won the NL wild card in 1998 by beating San Francisco 5-3 in a one-game playoff.

Walker Buehler has been lights out for the Dodgers lately posting a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts. Marquez last faced the Dodgers all the way back on June 30th when he allowed just two hits and one earned run in eight innings.

The Rockies will throw German Marquez at the Dodgers who has had success against the Dodger blue in 2018.
