Cubs to host Brewers for NL Central tiebreaker game

Dodgers Dugout It all comes down to Dodgers vs. Giants

For the sixth consecutive year, the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to take part in October baseball, extending the team's MLB-leading streak.

The loser will play either the Cubs or Brewers in the NL Wild Card Game, who, guess what, will also be playing a Game 163 Monday for the NL Central title.

The Dodgers have won 12 of 19 contests against Colorado this season. But it's hard to deny that the Rockies have real motivation to win while the Nats have something less than that. Bucky Dent's pop-fly homer finished off the Red Sox in 1978.

The victor at Wrigley gets a spot in the division series and home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs. So it's perhaps not surprising that after five innings, Colorado holds a commanding 7-0 lead.

The Dodgers did all they could to win the NL West on Sunday. Defending World Series champion Houston opens the ALDS against Cleveland.

The Rockies forced their way into that playoff for the NL West title by routing Washington 12-0 on Sunday. However, not long after news of the Nationals scratching Max Scherzer, the Dodgers announced Rich Hill would instead take the ball.

The loser of the Rockies-Dodgers game will travel to play the loser of the Brewers-Cubs game in the National League Wild Card game on Tuesday night. He singles up the middle to start off the Dodgers half of the inning. Jose Quintana is likely to start for the Cubs, and Jhoulys Chacin is in line for the Brewers.

The Dodgers were the first team to punch their ticket for Monday's twinbill, defeating the San Francisco Giants 15-0 to complete a three-game road sweep. Yelich's 36 home runs are even with Colorado's Trevor Story and St. Louis' Matt Carpenter, one behind Arenado.
