Saturday's major league roundup: Dodgers clinch majors' final playoff berth

Manny Machado

Marquez's most recent appearance against the Dodgers was June 30th, in which he hurled an absolute gem, striking out nine batters on his way to an eight inning, two-hit, one run performance. The Giants have played the Dodgers close in the first two games of the series, but haven't been able to beat them.

Hill (11-5) took the early lead and coasted with it, allowing just two hits in his seven innings.

In the NL West matchup, the Dodgers will start rookie Walker Buehler (7-5, 2.76 ERA), who has been hot down the stretch, with a 1.70 ERA in his last 11 starts.

Instead, they're now headed to Chicago and will have to win the Wild Card game against the Cubs to reach a playoff series.

But the President stressed again that Kavanaugh's life had been all but ruined by allegations he suggested were false. She's the second woman who came forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

Manny Machado, Kemp and Muncy all joined the hit parade as Los Angeles left nothing to chance in Game No. 162.

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 was ahead 9-0 at home against Washington in the eighth on two home runs by Nolan Arenado. Two of those starts were in 2013 against the Braves when he gave up just one run in 13 innings.

They'll take the field Sunday with a meaningful game less than 24 hours after champagne was flowing following their clinching of no worse than an NL wild-card playoff berth Saturday.

She also became the first woman to reach the last 8 at this year's edition too. Qiang Wang beat Monica Puig 6-3 6-1 in the the other completed quarter-final.

"Not how we scripted it", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Wednesday's second consecutive loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks, which dropped LA into second place.

Walker Buehler has been lights out for the Dodgers lately posting a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts. That marked the 44th splash homer by a Giants opponent, fifth by a Dodger and first by an LA player since Cody Bellinger on September 13, 2017.

Both Colorado and Los Angeles absolutely put on a show offensive against their respective opponents on Sunday.

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

John Aldridge and Ian Rush react to Liverpool point at Chelsea
Prior to being replaced 55 minutes into Liverpool's sixth straight league win, Van Dijk had played every minute of the 2018-19 campaign.

Then out in AT&T Park's vast right field for perhaps the final time in a Giants uniform, he tipped his cap every direction to the rousing ovation. I know we believe in ourselves.
