The Brewers won their first Central title since 2011, beating the Cubs 3-1 in a tiebreaker game earlier Monday. If the divisions are tied after Sunday, they'll go to tiebreakers Monday at Wrigley Field and Dodger Stadium - the victor advances to the Division Series, the losers meet Tuesday in the one-and-done wild-card game.

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're no strangers to tight spots and they find themselves in another one, after Milwaukee caught them down the regular-season stretch.

The left-hander, who helped the Nationals win four division titles in the last six seasons, scattered three hits. Joakim Soria (3-4) tossed a scoreless inning of relief for his second victory in as many games. "Any time we play the Cubs, it's a hostile environment, especially in Wrigley Field". But the 26-year-old Gray surrendered five earned runs in two frames in that contest, and has a 7.11 ERA in his last seven starts. He pitched on Sunday, and has posted a 2.23 ERA in five starts since being acquired from the Washington Nationals in late August.

Colorado and the Cubs split six games this year, each scoring 33 runs.

"Those guys can surprise you and I've seen it numerous times". The Brewers held a 1-0 lead in the third before the Cubs tied in the ffith.
