A win on Monday not only clinches another NL West title for the Dodgers but would allow them to have home-field advantage in an NL Division Series matchup with the Atlanta Braves, which begins Thursday. Jim Deshaies set the modern record by striking out his first eight batters in a 1986 game, and Jacob deGrom matched the feat in 2014. They won a wild card in 2007 by beating San Diego in a one-game playoff. Jose Quintana is likely to start for the Cubs, and Jhoulys Chacin is in line for the Brewers.
