The Brewers’ tiebreaker game against the Cubs on Monday (1 p.m. ET, ESPN) to decide the NL Central champion is treated like a regular-season game for statistical purposes.
Freeland will take the mound in the winner-take-all game at Wrigley Field hoping to extend the Rockies’ season. “They’ve done the job for us all season”.
The NL West and NL Central were on track for tiebreaker games when the Los Angeles Dodgers, Colorado Rockies, Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers all took leads in Game 162.
Who the starting pitchers would be for a Brewers-Cubs Game 163 is not clear.
Erik Kratz drove in two runs, and Jonathan Schoop added two hits, a run scored and an RBI. The Brewers have yet to announce who will get the start for them, but it would not be shocking if they turned it into a bullpen game.
They beat Pittsburgh in the wild card-game in 2015 after finishing third in the division behind St. Louis and the Pirates.
Well, it sure seems like the Milwaukee Brewers are feeling good about things.
He extended his hitting streak to 10 games, going 2 for 3 and driving in three. “He’s living a great moment today and hopefully we’ll get the opportuinty to play against them again [in the NLDS]”.
Colorado and the Cubs split six games this year, each scoring 33 runs.
“I was pumped up even to get the call to be able to go in at that time”, Webster said.
The Brewers went 19-7 in September and won their final seven games, putting up double-digit run totals three times during the streak.
Arenado homered twice and Charlie Blackmon hit for the cycle as the Rockies roughed up Washington 12-0. “You’ve seen these guys multiple times”.
On Monday, after starters Jhoulys Chacin and Jose Quintana were long gone following impressive efforts, Arcia’s hit off Chicago’s third pitcher, Justin Wilson (4-5), triggered a two-run, difference-making eighth inning against four Cubs pitchers.
Aguilar hit his 35th homer, connecting in the fourth off Spencer Turnbull (0-2). But two runs in the eighth provided the win.
