Cubs set for tiebreaker game to settle NL Central

Adjust Comment Print

The two clubs will play a tiebreaker, regular season game no. 163, on Monday in L.A. The victor of that game will face the victor of the Brewers-Cubs game in the best-of-five NLDS.

Two tiebreakers on the same day for the first time in major league history.

Although much has been made about the Rockies recent hot streak, it's worth noting that they have been playing non-contending teams.

"It's two of the best young starting pitchers in the big leagues pitching in this type of game", Rockies manager Bud Black said. He also scored two runs and struck out once. When Jake Arrieta pitched on Thursday, the Rockies offense managed just three runs.

Kavanaugh was clearly frustrated and distraught by the smear campaign that was orchestrated by the Democrats. You're supposed to be Bill Cosby when you're a junior and senior in high school.

The Rockies will take on the Dodgers in Game 163 in Los Angeles to detemine the division victor.

For the Dodgers, they will send Walker Buehler to the mound and with no disrespect to Clayton Kershaw, Buehler has been the Dodgers best pitcher this season. Arenado and Carlos Gonzalez are each 3-for-10 against Buehler, who is 0-1 with a 2.61 ERA in five starts versus Colorado in 2018.

It might not have quite the same drain as the opening rounds of the NCAA tournament, but Monday's one-game divisional playoffs are going to put a serious dent in workplace productivity. It is not yet known who the Rockies will start. In 1908, the second of three Cubs' World Series titles, the team won a make-up game against the Giants 4-2 on October 8th at the Polo Grounds to win the National League pennant. Marquez does not have any playoff experience either so this will be his first taste of a playoff type atmosphere. Pederson, who once led the Dodgers is strikeouts, is the only player in the National League this year to hit at least 25 home runs and strike out less than 100 times.
