Yelich, Brewers beat Cubs 3-1 for NL Central title

Yelich, Brewers beat Cubs 3-1 for NL Central title

NL home run champion Nolan Arenado and the Rockies (91-72) had won nine of 10 before getting shut down by rookie Walker Buehler in a 5-2 loss on Monday.

Yelich collected three more hits as the Milwaukee Brewers won their first NL Central title since 2011, beating the Chicago Cubs 3-1 on Monday in a tiebreaker game.

Freeland will take the mound in the winner-take-all game at Wrigley Field hoping to extend the Rockies' season.

This story will be updated.

"We'd like to have one pitch back to Arcia", manager Joe Maddon said. They sure would like to get into the post-season again as a division victor, and Chicago opened the door by losing 2-1 to St. Louis earlier Saturday. Hader came in in the eight inning with Craig Counsell using him for a six-out save, and he showed up.

Trump said it was unfair and economically crippling to dairy farmers . "When we got there, that was an excellent sign for me". And outside of autoworkers, she said, the impact on industry is not assured. "Does it help the average worker in the U.S.?"

When the Cubs didn't capitalize in the sixth inning when they had two runners on with two outs, the game was over right then. That could be this Cubs team, a group that has to turn around tomorrow and play the victor of Rockies-Dodgers. Yelich only trails in the RBIs column - he has 109 and Javier Baez of the Cubs leads with 111. "I get to see it every day".

Hendriks (0-1) will be just the fourth pitcher to start a playoff game after a regular season of no wins, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. This time garnering only three hits. The NL West winner advances to a best-of-five Division Series against Atlanta, and the NL Central winner moves on to a Division Series against the winner of Tuesday's wild card game. He's 0-1 with a 2.61 ERA in those starts. Even if Yelich never played another game as a Brewer, he's carved out a niche in the annals of Wisconsin baseball history with his remarkable year.

The Cubs (95-68) reached the playoffs for a franchise-record fourth straight year and had a third consecutive division championship in sight, only to be pushed aside by the surging Brewers.

Freeland (17-7, 2.85 ERA) also finished the season hot, with 11 consecutive quality starts.
