LOS ANGELES (AP) — What a day for Walker Buehler. The rookie with the preternatural calm pitched the Los Angeles Dodgers to a record sixth consecutive NL West title. Buehler tossed one-hit ball into the seventh inning http://www.giantsfanproshop.com/authentic-pablo-sandoval-jersey , and Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy launched two-run homers to beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 in a tiebreaker on Monday.“It’s a normal baseball game. It’s hyped up, there’s an adrenaline, but you got to execute,” Buehler said. “That’s all you can do.”The defending NL champion Dodgers became the first major league team to win six straight division crowns since the Yankees captured nine AL East titles in a row from 1998-2006.“It doesn’t get old,” confirmed ace Clayton Kershaw.Los Angeles now hosts Atlanta in the best-of-five NL Division Series beginning Thursday.“We’re going to beat Atlanta,” a shirtless Yasiel Puig proclaimed, rivulets of beer and champagne down his front and back. “No matter who’s coming, we’re going to the World Series and bring the 2018 championship here.”Denied their first division title in franchise history, the Rockies head to Wrigley Field to play the Chicago Cubs in the NL wild-card game on Tuesday night.“Our guys will put it in the rearview for sure,” Rockies manager Bud Black said of the loss. “The resiliency of this group has been awesome all year.”Pitching in 90-degree heat, Buehler was oh-so-cool in closing out a regular season that ended with Game 163 after both teams had identical records of 91-71.The soft-spoken 24-year-old from Lexington, Kentucky, has been so steady of late that manager Dave Roberts had no qualms about giving Buehler the ball for the crucial game that helped decide the Dodgers’ postseason fate.“He’s ready for this moment,” Roberts said, “and he responded.”Buehler’s only slip-up came on the field after the game when he let loose with an inadvertent expletive, having been handed the mic after fans demanded to hear from him. He clasped his hand to his mouth and apologized.No need to be sorry, though Duane Kuiper Jersey , after that performance.Buehler settled in quickly, retiring his first six batters in a row, and never did allow a run.“Walker is a tremendous talent,” Kershaw said. “His competitiveness is off-the-charts, his ability is off-the-charts.”Buehler (8-5) had his no-hit bid broken up in the sixth on Charlie Blackmon’s single, one of his two hits for the Rockies.“He didn’t fold at all under pressure,” Muncy said. “He went there and attacked them just like we knew he was going to.”Buehler even helped himself offensively, hitting a single in the sixth for his first professional RBI and extending the Dodgers’ lead to 5-0.“Love that, absolutely,” he said, soaked to the skin.After giving up a two-out walk to Carlos Gonzalez in the seventh, Buehler exited to a standing ovation from the announced crowd of 47,816. He waved his right hand and quickly strode to the dugout as fans chanted his last name. The right-hander struck out three and walked three.Despite posting the best road record in franchise history (44-3Cool, the Rockies couldn’t get untracked. They didn’t advance a runner past second base until the ninth when Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story homered back-to-back off closer Kenley Jansen.Jansen then retired the next three batters in a row.“What happened?” Jansen said when asked about the homers. “We’re first in the division, that’s what happened.”The Dodgers’ two homers extended their franchise and NL-leading total to 235 on the season. Bellinger got the Dodgers on the board with his 25th homer in the fourth, a two-out shot to left that made it 2-0. Muncy struck out leading off but was safe at first on a passed ball by catcher Tony Wolters. After Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal struck out, Bellinger connected on a 1-0 pitch from German Marquez (14-11).Joc Pederson doubled to deep right-center leading off the fifth. One out later http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-nick-ahmed-jersey , Muncy hit his 35th homer to left-center, extending the lead to 4-0 and chasing Marquez. Marquez gave up four runs — two earned — and five hits in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out nine and walked two.The Dodgers played their first tiebreaker since 1980, when they lost to Houston for the division title.The Rockies were on a roll coming into the club’s second tiebreaker and first for the NL West title, having won nine of 10 since being swept at Dodger Stadium from Sept. 17-19.“Today was unfortunate, but the fact of the matter is we have a chance to win the World Series,” Blackmon said. “I feel like most of the guys are looking at this as a great opportunity.”DIVISION TITLE ROLLRoberts joins Minnesota’s Ron Gardenhire (2002-04) and Houston’s Larry Dierker (1997-99) as the only managers to win three straight division titles in their first three seasons on the job.GOOGLE-EYED LASORDATom Lasorda stood in the midst of the partying, his blue Dodgers jacket bone-dry. The 91-year-old Hall of Famer, who managed the club to its last World Series title in 1988, wore goggles to protect his eyes from the spray of alcohol.THROUGH THE GATESThe announced attendance of 47,816 pushed the Dodgers’ season total to 3,857,500, breaking the franchise record of 3,857,036 set in 2007 and the sixth-highest in NL history.GOING LONGArenado finished the regular season with 38 homers to lead the NL. Story ended with 37, a career-high.UP NEXTThe Dodgers get two days off before the division series. The Rockies were headed to Chicago immediately after the game. The MLB postseason is just getting started, but already the rumor mill is churning ahead of another busy offseason.This year's crop of free agents has been among the most anticipated in recent memory Jake Lamb Jersey , with young superstars Bryce Harper and Manny Machado set to pursue record deals and a wealth of talent behind them in a deep market.Rumors and speculation will really start to fly once the World Series concludes, but already there are some interesting tidbits starting to trickle out.Ahead is a look at some of the latest rumors from around the league.Nationals Front Office to Meet with Scott Boras to Talk Bryce HarperBryce HarperPatrick Smith/Getty ImagesMaybe Bryce Harper's time with the Washington Nationals isn't finished just yet.Despite what appeared to be a goodbye message on Instagram following his final home game, the Nationals are still in the mix to re-sign their homegrown superstar.In fact, the front office might already be getting the ball rolling on a potential new deal."Two sources said over the weekend the front office, led by ownership, was making plans to meet with Harper and agent Scott Boras in Las Vegas before he hits the open market, though a third source said no meetings have been scheduled at this point," wrote Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports.Zuckerman went on to list the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees as likely suitors for Harper, while adding the San Francisco Giants, Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Atlanta Braves as others to watch.Given what we know about Boras and the type of money that will be in play here, it's unlikely that Harper is going to rush to make a decision.Still, it's noteworthy that the Nationals appear to be serious contenders to bring him back.Prediction:The meeting is just for both sides to touch base, and nothing will be decided until much later in the offseason.Andrew McCutchen More Than Just a Rental for the Yankees?Andrew McCutchenJim McIsaac/Getty ImagesThe Yankees acquired Andrew McCutchen in August due in large part to Aaron Judge being on the shelf with an injury.However, it's not out of the question to think the two sides could turn this into more than just a two-month pitstop."Andrew McCutchen is said to have loved his time around the Yankees http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-robbie-ray-jersey , so perhaps they would consider bringing him back," wrote Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports.The Yankees hold a $12.5 million option on Brett Gardner that can be bought out for $2 million, and Heyman wrote that they will "surely turn down" the option.A healthy Clint Frazier would be in the mix for outfield playing time, but bringing back McCutchen to provide a veteran presence and top-of-the-order bat makes sense if the years and price is right.Prediction:McCutchen tests the waters, but eventually lands back with the Yankees on a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2020.Derek Dietrich to be Non-Tendered?Rich Schultz/Getty ImagesAccording to Barry Jackson of theMiami Herald,it appears "highly questionable" that the Miami Marlins will tender a contract to versatile veteran Derek Dietrich.That comes as something of a surprise given his strong production this past season.The 29-year-old posted a 112 OPS+ with 26 doubles, 16 home runs and 45 RBI in 551 plate appearances, and he's seen at least semi-regular time at first base, second base, third base and at both corner outfield spots over the past few seasons.He made just $2.9 million this season and will earn a slight raise in arbitration, and with team control through 2020, he looks more like an asset than a player to be cut loose.His defensive flexibility and reasonable price tag should give him plenty of suitors if he does hit the open market, as he'll likely come cheaper than guys like Asdrubal Cabrera and Eduardo Escobar who could be targeted for a similar role.Prediction:Dietrich is in fact tendered a contract, as even the cost-cutting Marlins see the value in his versatility.All stats courtesy of Baseball Reference and FanGraphs, unless otherwise noted.
