Brewers, Cubs meet in one-game playoff for NL Central title

Even though it's October, Monday's tiebreaker game is considered a regular-season game. The Rockies won the games they should have which is good for them but the Dodgers are the best team the Rockies have played in a while. The first two came off Erick Fedde, who lasted only four innings and threw 64 pitches before he was pulled. It's on to Game 163 for the two NL West foes.

The game started with a lighter crowd than anticipated as typical Los Angeles traffic prevented fans from getting to the game until the 3rd inning.

"We're going to have to come out and play our game", Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo said in a postgame televised interview on NBC Sports Chicago. The Rockies offense went off for double digits several times this week but those games were against subpar pitching.

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. He finished the season with a.247 batting average - the same figure he had in each of the previous three years.

Colorado does own the fourth-best road record in the National League, however trips to Chavez Ravine are no easy task.

The victor of the NL West tiebreaker will face the Braves in the NLDS. The postseason will be a chance for a wide audience to see star rookie Ronald Acuna Jr., who showed off his talent Sunday with a leaping catch high against the wall in left field on a drive by Philadelphia's Carlos Santana.

The Colorado Rockies' Charlie Blackmon completed a cycle by hitting an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday. It is not yet known who the Rockies will start.

The Rockies have still yet to win a division title. Jim Deshaies set the modern record by striking out his first eight batters in a 1986 game, and Jacob deGrom matched the feat in 2014.
