Brewers, Cubs to meet in NL Central Tiebreaker Monday

Adjust Comment Print

The tiebreakers are considered game No. 163 of the regular season, meaning Yelich's stats - and those of Arenado and Baez - from Monday's game will count in the totals.

In fact, they were the one team for whom the Cubs would send a fleet of limos.

A sizable portion of Milwaukee fans in the crowd of 38,450 chanted "Let's go Brewers!".

Mike Montgomery will make his career-high 19th start of the season. Yes, this was his patsy.

The victor of the NL Central would be the top seed in the National League and hold home-field advantage through the NLCS.

But no. Didn't happen.

- Yelich enters the game at Wrigley Field having already clinched the NL batting title with a.323 average (the Reds' Scooter Gennett is second at.310).

Quintana wasn't dominant. He was barreled up at times.

Mikolas (18-4) allowed one unearned run and five hits in his fifth straight win.

The Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Chicago Cubs 3-1 in the NL Central tiebreaker on Monday afternoon at Wrigley Field and advanced to the divisional series as the top seed in the NL.

After Yelich struck out swinging - a rare occurrence during an extraordinary stretch for the NL MVP favorite - Ryan Braun got the Brewers an insurance run with a run-scoring single to center.

With neither starter completing the sixth, we got an answer. Tuesday didn't appear to matter. That left runners on second and third with no outs for righthander Steve Cishek, who surrendered a RBI single to Lorenzo Cain.

Like that, the Brewers led 3-1 and their bullpen played to asphyxiating form. Daniel Murphy and Javier Baez had the only other hits for the Cubs. The Cubs still haven't touched that bullpen and might not if you had given them all night. Anthony Rizzo had three hits for Chicago.
