The victory assures the Dodgers of at least a wild card berth, and they could still claim a sixth straight National League West division title. The Rockies host the Washington Nationals on Friday night, and the Cardinals begin a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. That said, Marquez has yet to face the new look lineup for Los Angeles, who made moves to acquire several names before the trade deadline, including Manny Machado and Brian Dozier.

Bumgarner beat the Dodgers 5-2 on August 13, allowing a home run to Justin Turner among seven hits in six innings.

Colorado was held to just four hits, half of which didn't even come until the ninth frame when Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story hit back-to-back solo home runs off closer Kenley Jansen.

"It's a game where obviously it's not do-or-die, but I think that it's a must-win game", manager Dave Roberts said.

JT Chargois and Julio Urias finished up with a hitless inning apiece, completing the Dodgers' 11th shutout of the season, their third against the Giants. The lefty retired the first 10 batters in order before Joe Panik's single in the fourth.

How big is home-field advantage?

As first pitch approaches, something to consider in the game. "You never know, I could come back. but it is unknown and it really was just incredible".

Giants fans did not enjoy watching the Dodgers celebrate inside AT&T Park but appreciated the effort of Pence, who is being applauded on every at-bat in this season-ending homestand as if it's his last in San Francisco.
