Cubs, Brewers, Dodgers, Rockies win, force tiebreakers

The victor advances to the National League Division Series, while the loser plays in the National League Wild Card Game against the loser from the Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers National League Central tiebreaker game earlier Monday. Because the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies will also play a tiebreaker game to decide the NL West, the Cubs-Brewers game will start at 1:05 p.m. ET. Though both the Rockies and Dodgers have clinched playoff spots, there's a world of difference between winning the division and being relegated to a one-game playoff. The two clubs will play a tiebreaker, regular season game no. 163, on Monday in L.A. They are a relative rarity - there have only been four tiebreakers since 2000, and only one since 2013.

"We put ourself in a position to come down to one game to win the division and get a couple days off", Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo said after Sunday's 10-5 victory over St. Louis. Nolan Arenado and the big-hitting Colorado Rockies at Dodger Stadium. Meanwhile, the Dodgers are manhandling the Giants right now, up 14-0 in the fifth. Rich Hill, who found out he was the starting pitcher as he woke up on Sunday morning, provided seven shutout innings. The Rockies have never won the NL West. The two teams faced off earlier in September, with the Dodgers sweeping the Rockies in Los Angeles. Moments later, the Cubs matched Milwaukee by beating the St. Louis Cardinals 10-5 at a soggy Wrigley Field. With six straight postseason's under the team's belt, the Los Angeles Dodgers now own the third-longest postseason streak in Major League Baseball history.
