Cubs-Brewers Set For National League Tiebreaker

  • National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

"MVP!" after Yelich's go-ahead shot in the seventh.

Oakland and the Yankees hold the wild-card game Wednesday night in NY and the victor goes to Boston on Friday. He struck out four and did not walk a batter. He came out of the game in the eighth to a thunderous ovation.

They'll return to Miller Park on Wednesday day for a light workout, then get right back to business Thursday afternoon.

"I'm sure they know that". They're no strangers to tight spots and they find themselves in another one, after Milwaukee caught them down the regular-season stretch.

Javier Baez of the Cubs rounds second to score a run during the third inning against the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field on September 30, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois.

Brewers: Counsell named LHP Gio Gonzalez (9-11) the starter for the finale.

Luis Severino gets a wild-card do-over when he starts for the Yankees against Oakland in a winner-take-all matchup. "Any time we play the Cubs, it's a hostile environment, especially in Wrigley Field".




Gio Gonzalez (10-11) toiled efficiently through five scoreless innings in his fifth start since being acquired on August 31 from Washington.

Arenado homered twice and Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle as the Rockies roughed up Washington 12-0.

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

A sizable portion of Milwaukee fans in the crowd of 38,450 chanted "Let's go Brewers!" But two runs in the eighth provided the win. Sent to Class AAA Colorado Springs for a mental break at the end of August, he's returned to the dominant form that made him an All-Star a year ago. Gardenhire, who previously managed the Minnesota Twins (2002-2014), replaced Brad Ausmus.

"We have another opportunity", Maddon said. "We are going to rebuild this thing and start from the ground level up". We've got to be ready to play, and I think we will be. "We wanted to bring this home for them". There's also this: Happ has been lights out against the Red Sox, who await the wild-card victor in an AL Division Series.

"You need to see what it's like".
