Buehler's present as Dodgers visit Giants

When they were in Brooklyn, the Dodgers finished tied with the rival Giants for the 1951 NL pennant, and then famously lost a three-game series to NY on a home run by Bobby Thomson. The Dodgers pounded out 16 hits and Rich Hill gave up only two hits in seven scoreless innings. San Francisco scored four runs in the ninth inning at Dodger Stadium for the decisive victory of a three-game tiebreaker series for the 1962 pennant.

Chris Taylor drew a walk from Andrew Suarez (7-13) to get the Dodgers going Sunday, Justin Turner followed with an RBI double and the rout was on. Colorado is hitting a collective.257 on the year, led by Nolan Arenado's mark of.297.

"Everyone did it different", Roberts said.


He also hit two-run shot in the third.

Marquez comes into the game 2-0 against the Dodgers this year. The lefty retired the first 10 batters in order before Joe Panik's single in the fourth.

Both Colorado and Los Angeles absolutely put on a show offensive against their respective opponents on Sunday. A sixth straight division title by the Dodgers would be the third-longest streak since divisions started in 1969 behind Atlanta's 14 consecutive from 1991-2005 and nine in a row by the Yankees from 1998-2006. The Rockies won the games they should have which is good for them but the Dodgers are the best team the Rockies have played in a while. Manager Bruce Bochy has indicated that he would like to return next season, but the team has yet to make an announcement regarding his future.


How big is home-field advantage? Bet the Los Angeles Dodgers -200 over the Giants.

As first pitch approaches, something to consider in the game.

If any of you would like a note to provide to your boss/teacher/parent so you can be excused from work/school/chores, please let me know and I'll be happy to provide it for you.


Giants fans did not enjoy watching the Dodgers celebrate inside AT&T Park but appreciated the effort of Pence, who is being applauded on every at-bat in this season-ending homestand as if it's his last in San Francisco.
