Dodgers, Brewers win to avoid Major League Baseball wildcard

8 hitter had more hits (4) than the entire Cubs lineup (3) in the one-game playoff to decide the National League Central Monday afternoon.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Rookie Walker Buehler tossed one-hit ball into the seventh inning, Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy launched two-run homers, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 in a tiebreaker to earn their record sixth consecutive NL West title.

Throughout his Major League Baseball career, September was easily Fielder's best month, and his.982 career OPS that month is easily the best in franchise history among players who played at least 50 September games as a Brewer. They had the higher expectations coming into the season and have the much higher payroll.

He retired the Cubs in order in the eighth, striking out two Cubs while throwing a few of his hardest pitches all season. "That one didn't go in my favour", Stumpf said.

Regardless of the outcome in Game 163 for the Brewers, make sure you take the time and enjoy the ride.

At the start of September, the Brewers were in third place and five games behind the Cubs with the Cardinals in second.

The Cubs led St. Louis late in their game.

Christian Yelich's bid to become the first NL Triple Crown victor since 1937 appeared to fall agonizingly short after Sunday's regular-season finale.

The Milwaukee Brewers and manager Craig Counsell worked this game to perfection: get the lead and then hand it off to the bullpen to let them shut it down.

"We'll be ready. This team has responded all year", said Anthony Rizzo, who homered for Chicago's run.

Webster hit a batter, but he worked out of the inning without giving up a run and wound up with the win. "Whenever he goes out there tomorrow for us and toes the rubber for us, we're all going to be really confident right behind him". But two runs in the eighth provided the win. It's his turn in the rotation - he last pitched on Saturday - and he's been perhaps Milwaukee's best pitcher when healthy this year, posting a 2.57 ERA in 16 starts. And don't count out Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar, who has 35 home runs.
