National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jose Quintana (62) delivers during the first inning of a tiebreaker baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, Oct. 1, 2018, in Chicago.

If the Rockies win, they will advance to the division series against the Milwaukee Brewers and they would play afternoon games on Thursday and Friday. Corey Knebel got the win and Josh Hader picked up the save. Then Anthony Rizzo and the Chicago Cubs moved into the lead of what just might be baseball's best division.

The loser of the Rockies-Dodgers game will travel to play the loser of the Brewers-Cubs game in the National League Wild Card game on Tuesday night. Kyle Freeland (17-7, 2.85) starts for the Rockies, and the victor gets Milwaukee in the best-of-five Division Series starting Thursday at Miller Park. He had 110 RBIs, one behind the Cubs' Javier Baez, and finished with 36 home runs - Colorado's Nolan Arenado had 37 going into the Rockies' game at Dodger Stadium. This time garnering only three hits. "Let's go Brewers!" - a rarity at Wrigley Field over the years.

Quintana kept the Cubs in the game with another stingy performance against Milwaukee, allowing one run in five-plus innings. Lester (18-6, 3.32 ERA) has been on a roll of late and has won his past three starts and four of his five outings in September.
