Cubs-Brewers Set For National League Tiebreaker

Tiebreakers have been perilous for Dodgers

The victor of Monday's matchup will clinch the division title and advance to National League Divisional Series against the Braves with home-field advantage.

Cubs skipper Joe Maddon says in many ways the fact that the 162-game season comes down to an extra game to decide the national Central division champion shows why in his view baseball is the ideal sport.

Colorado had another impressive individual performance earlier in the week when German Marquez began a start against Philadelphia with eight straight strikeouts, tying a record.

After moving to Los Angeles, the Dodgers did win a best-of-three series against the Milwaukee Braves for the 1959 pennant, but three years later, it was the Giants again who stood in the way. "Hopefully he makes some mistakes and we execute and capitalize on it". Jon Lester would be on any short list of pitchers you would want in a sudden-death situation.

Colorado on the other hand had the long-ball working.

Arcia went 4-for-4, scoring the Brewers' first run in the third inning and then the go-ahead run in the eighth inning when he smacked a single up the middle on an 0-2 count off Cubs reliever Justin Wilson.

Kavanaugh’s interruptions of Democratic senators in hearing draw ire and support
Grassley (again) talked with disdain about Ford's request for an FBI investigation. "The Senate must vote", Trump tweeted . The memory - and Kavanaugh's laughter during the act - was "locked" in her brain, she said.

The Colorado Rockies got to this point by playing stellar baseball in the last 10 contests.

For a while, it looked like the Washington Nationals might be able to provide that help.

How big is home-field advantage?

The Cubs won the NL wild card in 1998 by beating San Francisco 5-3 in a one-game playoff.

That means two games Monday, both on ESPN, with the first starting at 12:05pm CT and the second at 3:09pm.

Walker Buehler has been lights out for the Dodgers lately posting a 0.90 ERA in his last three starts.
