Tiebreak games needed to settle NL Central, NL West races

Tiebreak games needed to settle NL Central, NL West races

In the first game of Monday's unprecedented doubleheader, the Milwaukee Brewers will meet the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field at 1 p.m. ET.

Arcia scored twice and Yelich ran his batting average to.326 for the Brewers, who won their first NL Central title since 2011.

Corey Knebel (4-3), who pitched a scoreless seventh inning, was credited with the win.

Anthony Rizzo hit a huge homer Monday afternoon as part of an otherwise lifeless offensive performance against Jhoulys Chacin and Milwaukee's bullpen.

The Cubs won the season series from Milwaukee, 11-8, but the Brewers won seven of the final ten in the series, including four of their final six which allowed them to catch up to the Cubs despite being five games back on Labor Day.

Josh Gordon's First Catch From Tom Brady
It's very comforting for a quarterback to see a guy get open really early in a route. "He's been a great player for our team". The Patriots didn't hold a practice Monday, just meetings, and Edelman's return was naturally noted by teammates.


The Milwaukee Brewers arrived in Chicago Monday tied with the Cubs for the best record in the NL Central division after 162 games. "There's a lot of teams that are at home right now and I think they would love that one more opportunity to play a meaningful game".

The Brewers did not announce their starter until Monday morning.

A sizable portion of Milwaukee fans in the crowd of 38,450 chanted "Let's go Brewers!" He drove in Arcia with his two-out hit in the third.

Chicago had a chance to grab the lead in the sixth, but Joakim Soria escaped the threat by striking out Baez with runners on first and second. Momentum clashes with dominance, however, as Jose Quintana will be on the hill for the Cubs, and he has been fantastic against the Brewers in 2018. Yelich hit.352 over 26 games in the month of September, clubbing 10 home runs - which helped him earn that Player of the Month honor.
