All four National League teams will play on Sunday, with the Rockies and Braves looking to avoid elimination. Can the Brewers and Dodgers sweep them?
Brewers vs. Rockies
I like the Rockies to live to fight another day. Colorado has scored just two runs in the first two games of this series but they averaged 5.5 runs at Coors Field and they hit lefties well, as they led the Majors in runs scored against left-handers and led the National League with a .799 OPS against southpaws.
Wade Miley struggled in his only start against the Rockies this season, giving up three earned runs on five hits (one home run) and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings on August 5 and Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story are a combined 6-for-16 with five RBI against him.
German Marquez limited the Brewers to only two earned runs in seven innings on August 3 and he was 3-1 with a stellar 2.14 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP in his last five regular season starts. The Rockies are 12-5 in Marquez's last 17 starts and they will play be fired up looking to avoid elimination at home.

Dodgers vs. Braves
I'm looking at the Dodgers to get the series sweep on Sunday. Rookie Walker Buehler was phenomenal in Game 163 against the Rockies, throwing 6.2 scoreless innings, surrendering just one hit and he limited the Braves to one earned run on two hits and no walks with four strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings on June 8.
The Braves are scoreless in two games in this series and probable starter Kevin Gausman was just 1-2 with a 4.23 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP in his last five starts and the Dodgers are averaging 4.89 runs in nine games against the Braves this season. The Braves are 2-11 in their last 13 home games against a team with a winning road record and the Dodgers are 5-1 in Buehler's last six starts when their opponent scores two runs or less in their previous game.
