Dodgers reportedly upset after Nationals decline to use Scherzer against Rockies

"2018 - the big party is here in Los Angeles".

General view as a Colorado Rockies fans holds a sign in reference to playing the Los Angelos Dodgers during the game against the Washington Nationals in the eighth inning at Coors Field. That said, Marquez has yet to face the new look lineup for Los Angeles, who made moves to acquire several names before the trade deadline, including Manny Machado and Brian Dozier. They had ace Max Scherzer slated to start the final game of the season at Colorado.

Here are three takeaways from the Dodgers' Game 163 win. The Dodgers will repeat as National League Champions in convincing fashion.

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. 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. He threw 93 pitches while striking out three and walking three. His ERA in that time is 5.68, while his night ERA is far better at 2.33.

The Dodgers were given a scare when closer Kenley Jansen was pounded for home runs by Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the ninth with no outs. That's it. Neither of the other division titles have been handed out, nor has either wild card berth.

The Rockies have a much happier (and shorter) history with these games.

Buehler has struck out 26 batters, while only allowing two runs in his last 20 innings pitched.

With the 24-year-old Buehler dominant at the mound, the Dodgers took control when Bellinger smashed a 95-mph fastball from German Marquez into right center-field for a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth.
