Rockies’ Blackmon hits for cycle against Nationals

In 26 seasons, the Colorado Rockies have yet to win their division, taking the Los Angeles Dodgers to Game 163 today, but falling 5-2 to LA. The Dodgers are 2-3 against the Rockies when Buehler starts against them.

German Marquez came out hot and actually pitched a pretty fantastic game despite his final line.

Blackmon did have an MVP-like 2017 and has followed it up with a steady 2018 of.289/.356/.501 with 29 home runs, 70 RBI and 119 runs scored. As the Dodgers defeated the Giants 15-0, both end Sunday still tied for the NL West lead.

After the game, Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw said Buehler is up to the challenge of playing under pressure. He allowed only one hit over 6 2/3 innings and even drove in a run of his own at the plate.

Blackmon combined with David Dahl in left, who has hit homers in five of the last six ball games, has made quite a power duo in the Colorado outfield to match the sparkling one on the left side on the infield with Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado. It was far too little, too late for the Rockies as they lost the West in the 163rd game of the season. The Rockies, on the other hand, will play the loser of the NL Central tiebreaker in the NL Wild Card Game. The Cubs are phenomenal in the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field this year, going 51-31, a 62.2 winning percentage.
