Brewers top Cubs to grab top seed in NL playoffs

The Brewers won their first Central title since 2011, beating the Cubs 3-1 in a tiebreaker game earlier Monday. Colorado missed out on a first NL West title in a 5-2 loss at the Dodgers, then quickly scooted off for Chicago. The victor of that game will face the victor of the Brewers-Cubs game in the best-of-five NLDS.

He came into the day hitting just.227 with a.559 OPS over the first 162 days of the 2018 regular season (including a September surge where he hit.288 with a.733 OPS that month).

The Cubs await them there after falling to Milwaukee 3-1 with the NL Central on the line. Chacin got the win when the Brewers clinched a playoff spot last Wednesday night, allowing one run over five innings against the Cardinals, so manager Craig Counsell may give him the opportunity in a do-or-die game.

The Brewers weren't even supposed to be here even after a great start to the season.

Any tiebreakers would be one-game matchups Monday.

Sexson wasted no time making an impression as a Brewer, demonstrating durability and massive power in his first full season in Milwaukee.

Rizzo's homer was the only extra-base hit for the Cubs, who were lost for just the second time in their past six games.

Robin Yount, Milwaukee's two-time AL MVP and Hall of Famer, was on hand to cheer for Yelich. Expect high scoring games between the two teams, especially with Miller Park and Coors Field being hitter friendly ballparks.

Buehler tossed one-hit ball into the seventh inning, and Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy launched two-run homers to beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 in a tiebreaker on Monday.

Ryan Braun supplied two hits, two runs and two RBIs, while Orlando Arcia also drove in two runs.

"You have the luxury of getting to watch a guy wind down his career right in front of your eyes", Gardenhire said.

Chicago will call on left-hander Jose Quintana (13-11, 4.09), who is 6-2 with a 1.60 ERA in 10 starts against Milwaukee. He is 9-7 with a 2.55 ERA in 25 postseason appearances (21 starts).
