In such an important game, the Dodgers chose to hand the ball to rookie Walker Buehler, and he came through in a big way. Kenly Jansen gave up more than double the amount of home runs this year (13) than last year (6).
Buehler also helped out his own cause at the plate, slapping an RBI single to right field, capping off an outstanding day for the 24-year-old. After Manny Machado and Yasmani Grandal struck out, Bellinger connected on a 1-0 pitch from German Marquez (14-11).
Bellinger got the Dodgers on the board with his 25th homer in the fourth, a two-out shot to left that made it 2-0.
Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story hit ninth-inning back-to-back home runs for the Rockies off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.
These aren't elimination games - the losers will end up as the NL wild cards - but there will still be some pressure, since the division winners head straight to the Division Series. Colorado's bats never came alive against Buehler while Marquez allowed four runs (two earned) in 4 2/3 innings on the mound.
"Today was unfortunate, but the fact of the matter is we have a chance to win the World Series", Blackmon said.

If the Dodgers lose, they will be the league's second wild card team and play Tuesday in the wild card at the loser of Monday's NL Central tiebreaker between the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago's Wrigley Field. Every team in both the NL and AL has a better record than the Dodgers except for Cleveland who finished with the same overall record but more victories within the division.
Joc Pederson doubled to deep right-center leading off the fifth. But the Rockies won nine times in 10 games to force a game 163, part of the first season in major league history with a pair of tiebreakers.
"I know how hard it is to get to this point and I'm proud to be a part of this group", Yelich said as Milwaukee's boozy party swirled around him, filling every inch of the cramped visitors' clubhouse at Wrigley Field.
"At this point, I think everybody understands the magnitude of the game", said Rockies slugger Matt Holliday, whose team trails the season series 12-7.
The Brewers and Dodgers both entered the final weekend of the regular season a game out of first place.
