  • National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

He later scored on a Lorenzo Cain single to send the Brewers into the NLDS and the Cubs into a one-game, winner-take-all wild-card at Wrigley Field Tuesday night.

Joakim Soria (3-1) got the win with a scoreless seventh.

With the win, Milwaukee gets a few days off before they play Thursday at home against the victor of the NL Wild Card Game.

By virtue of winning 11 of the 19 games between the two teams during the regular season, the Cubs would welcome the Brewers to the "friendly confines" of Wrigley Field for an extra game to determine the division victor.

Yelich is hitting.323 in his first season with Milwaukee, sealing the first batting title in Brewers' history.

Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich goes into the final day with a chance to become the first Triple Crown victor in the National League since Joe Medwick in 1937 for St. Louis.

The Chicago Cubs host the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, October 1st at 1:05 p.m.


But pinch-hitter Dawel Lugo turned on a 96 miles per hour inside fastball for a two-run homer to left that tied the game at 5 with nobody out in the eighth.

The Cubs will host the tiebreaker after winning the season series against the Brewers 11-8. Or the three-run double in the 12th inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series. The Brewers strung together four straight hits in a three-run fourth, capped by Kratz's two-run single.

"We'd like to have one pitch back to Arcia - that kinda set the whole thing up", Maddon said.

They feel confident with Lester, who will become the first pitcher to start two wild-card games. Hendriks was waived off the 40-man roster in June, spent two months in the minors, then emerged in September as Oakland's go-to "opener" to cover for an injury-decimated rotation. Quintana faced Milwaukee six times in 2018, allowing only nine earned runs in 37.1 innings (2.17 ERA) while striking out 33 and walking ten.

Tigers: Rookie Spencer Turnbull (0-1) takes the mound for the season finale.
