Tiebreakers to Decide NL Central, NL West

Because the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies will also play a tiebreaker game to decide the NL West, the Cubs-Brewers game will start at 1:05 p.m. ET.

The Rockies will throw German Marquez on the hill, who at 23-years-old is about seven months younger than Buehler.

Out of all six appearances, this one feels the most unique as the Los Angeles Dodgers are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in the 2017 World Series to the Houston Astros.

Oakland and the Yankees hold the wild-card game Wednesday night in NY and the victor goes to Boston on Friday. The Dodgers defeated the Braves in the 2013 NLDS.

The National League Central couldn't be decided in 162 games so the Cubs and Brewers will meet for a one-game tiebreaker Monday at Wrigley Field. The Rockies have never won the NL West. The Cubs are 11-8 against Milwaukee.

- Jhoulys Chacin will start the NL Central tiebreaker for the Milwaukee Brewers. Buehler, 24, had a 2.76 ERA in 130 innings this season. On Saturday, however, the Nationals announced that Erick Fedde would start instead, citing Scherzer's workload and the fact that both Colorado and Los Angeles had already clinched playoff spots.

The Cubs put themselves in this position with a 10-5 win at home over St. Louis. Blackmon then drilled a two-run homer of his own in the third, singled to lead off the fifth, and completed the cycle with an RBI double in the eighth. "It's been a long time since we set that goal until now. We're looking forward to it". He has 109 RBIs, tied with Arenado and two behind Javier Baez of the Cubs.

Since the tiebreakers are considered game No. 163 of the regular season, all stats Monday will count, giving Yelich a chance to win the first NL Triple Crown since Joe Medwick in 1937.
