Where would the Brewers and Cubs play NL Central tiebreaker?

Dispirited St. Louis: Cardinals eliminated from MLB postseason

However, the damage had already been done, and the man who played such a massive role in getting Milwaukee to Game 163 was a big reason why they won it. In 10 lifetime starts against the Brewers, Quintana was even better - a 1.60 ERA and 0.82 WHIP. Yes, this was his patsy.

Lorenzo Cain hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the eighth inning, Christian Yelich collected three more hits and the Milwaukee Brewers took their first NL Central title since 2011 by downing the Chicago Cubs 3-1 on Monday in a tiebreaker game.

The victor of the NL Central would be the top seed in the National League and hold home-field advantage through the NLCS.

"That was the play that got it going", manager Joe Maddon said.

The winners of the respective contests will be crowned division champs, while the losers will turn around to play in the Wild Card game the following evening. While the American League playoffs have basically been set for weeks now, two National League divisions are still up for grabs after Sunday's games. The bullpen battle turned into a parade of high-leverage relievers in a game tied at 1. Chacin did settle down to get five more outs, and Joakim Soria came up with a massive strikeout of Javy Baez with two outs in the sixth after Xavier Cedeno had allowed two straight batters to reach. Tuesday didn't appear to matter.

However, the tsunami caused a power outage in Palu, snapping its communication lines and making collection of information hard . In the nearby city of Donggala, home to almost 300,000 people, a large arched bridge that spanned a coastal river collapsed.

The inning began with Justin Wilson on the hill for the Cubs, who surrendered a single to Orlando Arcia.

Credit is due Murphy for his two-out double in the 3rd, but the crowd at Wrigley -- and the Cubs offense - came to life when Zobrist hit his triple to the right field corner.

As they have done all season, the Cubs hitters proved mystifyingly inconsistent. That's how you blow a great opportunity to sail into the postseason.

The Cubs took over sole possession of first place on August 1 and led the Brewers by as many as five games in early September, but Milwaukee closed the regular season on a tear. The Brewers caught them, and now have passed them. Quick, someone tell the Cubs offense that hitting in October is not optional.
