2014 MLB standings: Dodgers NLDS opponent still undecided

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers have known for a few days they will open the NLDS at home on Friday, and they know their opponent will be the NL Central winner. But heading into Sunday, the final day of the regular season, they still don't know which team that will be.

And they might not find out until Monday.

Saturday results

Dodgers 6, Rockies 5 (12): To culminate a season of being the team's best hitter in limited duty, Scott Van Slyke helped win this game with his legs, with two stolen bases, and he scored the winning run on a wild pitch.

Reds 10, Pirates 6 (10): A walk-off grand slam by Ramon Santiago temporarily derailed Pittsburgh's division hopes.

Nationals 5, Marlins 1: Stephen Strasburg struck out seven, ending his season with 242 strikeouts, a three-strikeout lead over Clayton Kershaw, who missed five weeks.

Diamondbacks 5, Cardinals 2: Mark Trumbo hit two home runs to delay the Cardinals' celebration by at least one more day..

Giants 3, Padres 1: Hunter Strickland got his first major league win.

Saturday's relevant action (all times PT)

10:05 a.m. - Pirates (Gerrit Cole) at Reds (Johnny Cueto)

The Pirates can force a tiebreaker game for the NL Central with a win AND a St. Louis loss. Cueto has 235 strikeouts, seven behind Strasburg for the league lead.

1:05 p.m. - Padres (Robbie Erlin) at Giants (Chris Heston)
