Brewers top Cubs, win NL Central

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jose Quintana delivers during the first inning of a tiebreaker baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday Oct. 1 in Chicago

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. The victor will also receive home-field advantage against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series.

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

It's playoff time in Major League Baseball with a pair of tiebreak games on Monday launching the month-long chase to World Series honors. He is hitting.323, giving him a huge lead in the batting race.

Obviously, it won't be easy, but Yelich has a clear path to become the first NL Triple Crown victor since Joe Medwick of the Cardinals 81 years ago.

Joe Maddon didn't think this game came down to the bullpens, pointing to how the Brewers had 12 hits and his Cubs team managed only 3.

Detroit starter Spencer Turnbull (0-2) gave up four runs on five hits in 5 1/3 innings and struck out a season-high seven.

With the win, not only do the Brewers win the division, but they ended the regular season with the best record in the National League and will have home-field advantage throughout at least the National League playoffs.

The victor goes to the National League Division Series, and the loser goes to the National League Wild Card Game - a winner-take-all matchup - against the loser of the National League West tiebreaker game later Monday. Neither team will be surprised in game 163 - the Cubs lead the season series 11-8, but the Brewers won four of six meetings in September.

The first two games will be televised on FS1 and the third game on MLB Network.

Davies and two relievers then combined to frustrate the Tigers for the next six innings, retiring 17 in a row during one stretch.

"I didn't really know what to do", Yelich said. Anthony Rizzo had three hits for Chicago.

Add in Arcia's 4-for-4, and you have one remarkable win. With 109 RBIs, Yelich is two behind the Cubs' Javier Baez. He's 0-1 with a 2.61 ERA in those starts.
