LOS ANGELES – The Colorado Rockies play the Los Angeles Dodgers this afternoon to decide the National League West title after routing the Washington Nationals 12-0 on Sunday.

The playoff-bound Rockies are playing for their first ever NL West crown.

Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76 ERA) gets the start for the Dodgers, and the Rockies will counter with German Marquez (14-10, 3.76 ERA), who struck out eight straight to begin his last start.

Another important game today is the Chicago Cubs as they host the Milwaukee Brewers for the NL Central title. The losers of both games will face each other on Tuesday in the NL wild-card game.

First pitch is at 2:09 p.m. (Mountain) at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
