Brewers, Cubs to meet in NL Central Tiebreaker Monday

That's how you blow a great opportunity to sail into the postseason. It's tight, but the Brewers are close to breaking through to the NL Central title.

Milwaukee Brewers' Orlando Arcia (3) celebrates in the dugout after scoring during the third inning of a tiebreak baseball game against the Chicago Cubs on Monday, Oct. 1, 2018, in Chicago. "They've been playing very well for a long period of time".

The Cardinals kept alive their chance for a wild card, but were eliminated by the Los Angeles Dodgers' 10-6 victory at San Francisco. Our route's been a little different than everybody else. "We just think about (Sunday) and try to win (Sunday) and hope that's enough going into this coming week. We need to have fun. if we put pressure on ourselves, it's gonna be harder". The former Nationals pitcher who was acquired at the waiver trade deadline allowed just three hits and one walk while striking out three.

They were aware of what was going on early in Milwaukee, Rizzo said, but their own two-run deficit early wasn't daunting. When the smoke cleared, four Cubs relievers (with one combined career All-Star appearance between them) had pitched in the eighth.
