According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, that decision went down very badly with the Dodgers.
The National League Central couldn't be decided in 162 games so the Cubs and Brewers will meet for a one-game tiebreaker Monday at Wrigley Field.
Rockies will face the Dodgers at 2:09 p.m. Monday.
Colorado Rockies' Nolan Arenado yells as he circles the bases after hitting a two-run home run off Washington Nationals starting pitcher Erick Fedde in the first inning Sunday in Denver. "Hopefully he makes some mistakes and we execute and capitalize on it".
Game 163 will be played at Dodgers Stadium after beating the Rockies 12 times to seven losses this season. Pederson, who once led the Dodgers is strikeouts, is the only player in the National League this year to hit at least 25 home runs and strike out less than 100 times.
Colorado on the other hand had the long-ball working. The final day also included a cycle. He is also 3-3 with a 2.12 ERA at home in 12 appearances.
Colorado flies to Los Angeles as one of the hottest teams in baseball, winners of nine of their last ten.
How big is home-field advantage?
The only teams better than the Los Angeles Dodgers are the 1995-2007 New York Yankees, who made 13 straight postseasons and the 1991-2005 Atlanta Braves, who made 14 straight postseasons (1994 was the strike year).
Colorado does own the fourth-best road record in the National League, however trips to Chavez Ravine are no easy task. German Marquez, who struck out eight straight batters to begin his last start, takes on Manny Machado, Justin Turner and their Los Angeles teammates.
As first pitch approaches, something to consider in the game.
The Giants moved Madison Bumgarner back just to start against the Dodgers on Friday, despite the fact that the series is completely meaningless to them.
