Colorado Rockies' Kyle Freeland to start wild-card game against Chicago Cubs

National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games Lorenzo Cain delivers the big hit as Brewers beat Cubs, win NL Central | The Kansas City Star

The victor will also receive home-field advantage against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. However, they got hot at the right time and continued to charge through the schedule, keeping the pressure on the Cubs. The atmosphere here should be nothing short of electric. The victor of that game will face the victor of the Brewers-Cubs game in the best-of-five NLDS.

Since the tiebreakers are considered game No. 163 of the regular season, all stats Monday will count, giving Yelich a chance to win the first NL Triple Crown since Joe Medwick in 1937.

According to the Major League Baseball postseason schedule, the Brewers will host the Cubs-Rockies victor Thursday at 4:07 p.m. and Friday at 3:15 p.m.at Miller Park, and then will play at Chicago or Colorado at 3:37 p.m. on Sunday.

Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson appears to be a longshot to make the team's roster for its NL Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The NL West winner advances to a best-of-five Division Series against Atlanta starting Thursday, and the NL Central winner moves on to a Division Series against the winner of Tuesday's wild card game.


The Cubs were a little late to Sunday's party. Moments later, the Cubs matched Milwaukee by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 10-5 at a soggy Wrigley Field.

"I didn't feel like it was a blowout here", Maddon said.

The Brewers went 19-7 in September and won their final seven games, putting up double-digit run totals three times during the streak.

Davies and two relievers then combined to frustrate the Tigers for the next six innings, retiring 17 in a row during one stretch. It worked out good for me and the team. 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. Assuming there is a need to play an extra game, of course. "They've done the job for us all season". Buehler has faced the Rockies five times in 2018. In Monday's division tiebreaker against the Cubs, however, Hader made his case to close a few more games out for Milwaukee. "If we win it, we'll be ecstatic. As long as we can keep them playing hard and start paying attention to the details of the game, we'll be OK".
