Giancarlo Stanton enters the final game of the season Sunday looking for his 60th homer as the Miami Marlins host the Atlanta Braves, one day after one of his teammates reached a pair of milestones in a 10-2 victory. Stanton is very much within reach of the 60 home run mark, something only five players in Major League Baseball history have done.
Passing 60, let alone Maris, would surely be enough to make Stanton National League MVP in most other seasons.
Marlins Park is notoriously a hard home run park, ranking No. 25 out of 30 in home run parks in the majors but he has 31 at home this season and 28 on the road. Urena has pitched well against the Braves this season, going 2-1 in four starts with a 2.22 ERA.
In his previous 18 2/3 innings, Peters had allowed 18 runs.
Miami got to Teheran with four runs in the third inning.
Dodgers 6, Rockies 3: Corey Seager had three hits and the Dodgers headed into the postseason by holding off the playoff-bound Rockies. Fried, who has posted a 3.21 ERA in his three starts, gave up three earned runs in 3 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on September 9. Corey Knebel struck out two in the ninth to earn his 39th save.
Stanton finished with ML-bests of 59 homers and 132 RBIs.
The AL Division Series will begin Thursday with the AL West champion Houston Astros meeting the AL East champion Boston Red Sox in Houston. It was another no-doubter for Stanton, who is the first player to reach 58 home runs since Ryan Howard with the Phillies in 2006. Yuli Gurriel and Cameron Maybin also drove in one run apiece for the Astros.

The Yankees sat Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez.
ST. LOUIS - Taylor Davis recorded an RBI double with two outs in the 11th inning as Chicago eliminated St. Louis from the National League wild-card race. Washington's Max Scherzer topped the NL for the second straight year at 268.
Atlanta reliever Dan Winkler (1-1) earned his first major league win, pitching one scoreless inning. He hit a leadoff single, moved up on a walk and a sacrifice bunt before scoring the tying run on Ozzie Albies' groundout. His salary will almost double next year to $25 million in the fourth season of record $325 million, 13-year contract. He struck out six of the last seven batters he faced, and got support from home runs by Jason Kipnis, Roberto Perez and Jay Bruce. That number has been reached just 10 times in Major League Baseball history.
The hit down the first base line off Daniel Hudson (2-7) scored Anthony Rendon, who led off the ninth with a single and took third on a single by Daniel Murphy.
Ozuna made $3.5 million this year, is arbitration eligible next season, and is under team control for two more seasons.
