Milwaukee 3, Chicago Cubs 1
–The Brewers are National League Central Champs! Orlando Arcia went 4-4 at the plate, while the National League MVP Christian Yelich added three hits of his own to lift Milwaukee past the Cubs in a tiebreaker game at Wrigley Field. Yelich got the Brewers on the board first, with a run-scoring single in the third inning. Chicago wouldn’t go away quietly, with Anthony Rizzo knotting the game back up in the fifth with a 429 foot shot to right field. Lorenzo Cain and Ryan Braun delivered RBI singles in the eighth to put the Brewers ahead, and Josh Hader struck out three in a two inning save to preserve the win. Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin allowed a run on one hit in 5 & ⅔ innings – while Corey Knebel picked up the win in relief, pitching a scoreless seventh inning. The Brewers advance to the National League Division Series – and will host game one in the best-of-five series Thursday night at Miller Park.

–Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger homered in the win for the Dodgers to clinch the National League West crown. Los Angeles will play Atlanta in the NL Division Series, while the Rockies head to Chicago to face the Cubs in the Wild Card game tonight.
The awards keep rolling in for Christian Yelich – as he was crowned the National League Batting Champion and was named the National League’s “Player of the Month” for September.
Yelich went 3 for 4 with an RBI in the Brewers’ win over the Cubs in “Game 163” at Wrigley Field. The 26=year-old led the National League in hitting with a .326 average, but fell short of becoming the 13th Triple Crown winner since 1920. Yelich was one shy in RBI’s to Javier Baez (111-110) and Nolan Arenado in home runs (38-36). Yelich hit .352 over 26 games in the month of September, clubbing 10 home runs – which helped him earn that Player of the Month honor.
