Buehler's present as Dodgers visit Giants

The Giants have played the Dodgers close in the first two games of the series, but haven't been able to beat them. 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. Manny Machado has 12 hits and is batting.300 over his past 10 games for Los Angeles.

Chris Taylor drew a walk from Andrew Suarez (7-13) to begin the game, 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. Brian Dozier's two-run homer and a two-run double by Kemp highlighted a seven-run third inning.

Brandon Crawford is hitting.255 with 135 hits and 14 home runs in 150 games this year for the Giants.

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.

So manager Dave Roberts switched from Buehler to Hill (11-5), who delivered.

Out of all six appearances, this one feels the most unique as the Los Angeles Dodgers are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in the 2017 World Series to the Houston Astros.

Buehler, who was previously tabbed to start the season finale against the Giants, is now likely to be held back for a possible tiebreaker against the Colorado Rockies on Monday. 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.

Muncy's pinch-hit homer gave him 34 for the season and the drive splashed into McCovey Cove beyond the right-field arcade.

The Dodgers (90-71) assured themselves of a sixth consecutive trip to the postseason Saturday with a 10-6 victory over the San Francisco Giants.

Pence received big cheers from the sellout crowd as he ran to the outfield some 20 minutes before first pitch and he waved and clapped in appreciation. And some happened at AT&T Park, where tonight's game will be played. "I know the seven guys behind me will make plays".
