It all comes down to this.
Given how the season has played out, it’s only fitting the Los Angeles Dodgers are ONE game behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West standings entering the final day of the regular season.
If the Dodgers want a piece of the division crown, they must defeat the Brewers on Sunday. If they manage that and the Giants lose again to the Padres, Los Angeles will nab a share of their ninth straight NL West title.
That would send the Dodgers and Giants to a winner-take-all game 163 at Oracle Park on Monday. The winner of that game would take the division and the loser would be relegated to the do-or-die Wild Card Game.
Of course, all of that means nothing if LA doesn’t beat Milwaukee on Sunday.

Dodgers Pitcher Today
The Dodgers have just the guy they’d want on the mound in a must-win game, as Walker Buehler (15-4, 2.49 ERA) will make his 33rd start of the season. Buehler’s ERA ballooned nearly .50 ticks in the month of September, but he’s coming off a dominant outing against San Diego in which he allowed three hits over seven shutout innings.
The Brewers will counter with Brett Anderson (4-9, 4.26 ERA), so Los Angeles will have the clear pitching advantage on Sunday.
