NL Central tiebreaker game set for Monday

Dispirited St. Louis: Cardinals eliminated from MLB postseason

Dispirited St. Louis: Cardinals eliminated from MLB postseason

The losers will be relegated to the Wild Card game, while the winners will be crowned division champions and get a few more days off before the best-of-five postseason starts later in the week. The victor of that game plays whoever wins the Cubs/Brewers game. In that scenario, the Dodgers win the division and the Rockies play in Tuesday's NL Wild Card game against the Brewers or Cubs. For now, his contribution to the Cubs' hugely important 3rd inning in a 10-run effort was a piece of an offense that's been clicking nicely for several games now.

Chicago won't have to deal with the Cardinals.

The Cubs will go with rested starter Jose Quintana that has had success with the Brew Crew this season.

Milwaukee Brewers' Orlando Arcia (3) celebrates in the dugout after scoring during the third inning of a tiebreak baseball game against the Chicago Cubs on Monday, Oct. 1, 2018, in Chicago.

"He's pitched really well against us all year", Yelich said. Now it all comes down to two games and there might not be a team hotter than Milwaukee.




Hamels (4-3) was a tough-luck loser, dropping his third straight start after going 4-0 in his first nine outings following a trade from Texas.

This season, 162 games weren't enough. Bullpen issues have always been a concern for the Cubs, even in the year they won the World Series, but the implosion that we've witnessed over the course of the last month should be grave cause for concern on the North Side.

The Dodgers and Rockies were both at 90-71 entering Sunday, while the Cubs and Brewers were deadlocked at 94-67.

Chicago stays at Wrigley Field for Tuesday night's wild-card game. Craig Counsell has injected the Brewers with a winning spirit and the moves made this offseason are paying off at the right time.

Many Royals fans cheered for Cain as did Hosmer, who tweeted: "Lo Cain!" Root for the Brewers, who have a Cubs-esque exciting roster led by Yelich. He'll take the time to process that after the postseason is done.
