Brewers edge Cubs to win NL Central

The losing team will go on to play in the one-game National League Wild Card game, with the victor getting a few days off before advancing to the NL Division Series.

The title-winning Red Sox, Indians, Astros and Braves will advance to the postseason along with the Brewers, Cubs, Rockies and Dodgers plus the Yankees and Athletics, the two American League wild-card teams.

The Milwaukee Brewers were crowned National League (NL) Central champions after a 3-1 win over the Chicago Cubs on Monday.

Fury: The Only Reason Wilder Took Fight is He Thinks I'm Done
The victor of the Wilder-Fury fight could face Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium in London next April. Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury inevitably clashed at their first official press conference in London .

Jon Lester is expected to start for Chicago. Anthony Rizzo's solo shot accounted for the Cubs' lone run in a 3-1 loss to Milwaukee, while Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story hit back-to-back blasts to get the Rockies on the board in their 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

There are several other players who have games Monday that also have 36 home runs and are near the league lead in RBI, so it's possible the home run from May won't factor in. In 14 1/3 innings of work in the 2017 playoffs, Lester allowed just three earned runs in 14 1/2 innings as he started a pair of games and appeared in relief in Game 4 of the National League Division Series against the Nationals at Wrigley Field. The Cubs lost to the Brewers.

This is the Rockies second postseason berth in a row after making the playoffs previous year for the first time since 2009. The victor will also receive home-field advantage against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series.
