National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

To make sure this game was signed, sealed and delivered, the Brewers offense came through in the eighth inning with RBI singles by Lorenzo Cain and Ryan Braun. The Rockies-Cubs victor gets Milwaukee in the best-of-five division series starting Thursday at Miller Park.

8 hitter had more hits (4) than the entire Cubs lineup (3) in the one-game playoff to decide the National League Central Monday afternoon.

Yelich's full-season numbers stand out in their own right: He collected the Brewers' first batting title, made a late run at the National League's first triple crown since 1937 and led all National League position players in Wins Above Replacement (7.4, according to Baseball Reference).

Fielder closed out one of the most dominant offensive seasons in franchise history with a solid finishing kick, going 30-for-90 with 11 home runs to become the first Brewer ever to reach 50 in a season.

Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich goes into the final day with a chance to become the first Triple Crown victor in the National League since Joe Medwick in 1937 for St. Louis.

Start times for a potential Game 4 at Coors Field on Monday and a potential Game 5 in Milwaukee on October 10 will be announced at a later time. The loser will host the NL wild-card game Tuesday vs. the loser of the Colorado-Los Angeles Dodgers tiebreaker in the NL West. While the Brewers, Dodgers and Rockies easily were winning their games in blowouts, the Cubs and starting pitcher Mike Montgomery fell behind the Cardinals, 2-0, in the first inning.

Arenado homered twice and Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle as the Rockies roughed up Washington 12-0.

"It's a game where obviously it's not do-or-die, but I think that it's a must-win game", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after a 15-0 rout in San Francisco. "I get to see it every day".

Tigers: After sitting out Friday, OF Christin Stewart was shut down for the final two games of the weekend with an abdominal strain. The left-hander is 4-1 with a 2.13 ERA in seven starts against the Brewers this year. They did so in the third after two outs, on a double by Daniel Murphy, a triple by Ben Zobrist, a walk to Javy Baez and Rizzo's triple.

Lester was 6-1 with a 1.71 ERA in his final eight starts.
