Joakim Soria (3-1) got the win with a scoreless seventh.

The Brewers-Cubs victor gets to start the best-of-five Division Series at home on Thursday against the wild card victor. The Cubs will play the loser of Monday's second tiebreaker between Colorado and the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West title.

Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich goes into the final day with a chance to become the first Triple Crown victor in the National League since Joe Medwick in 1937 for St. Louis. Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, and Ryan Braun all had an RBI in the game to help Milwaukee secure the division at Wrigley Field. 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.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell didn't immediately announce a starter Sunday.

Maddon was the Los Angeles Angels' bench coach in 2002 when they won the World Series as a wild card.

National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games
Chris Taylor drew a walk from Andrew Suarez (7-13) to begin the game, Turner followed with an RBI double and the rout was on. Enrique Hernandez also had three hits for the Dodgers , who finished the regular season with 13 wins in their last 17 games.

According to the Major League Baseball postseason schedule, the Brewers will host the Cubs-Rockies victor Thursday at 4:07 p.m. and Friday at 3:15 p.m.at Miller Park, and then will play at Chicago or Colorado at 3:37 p.m. on Sunday.

The Cubs will host the tiebreaker after winning the season series against the Brewers 11-8. As for the validity of said note, well, I'm not making any guarantees. FS1 or MLB Network will exclusively cover all National League Division Series games, while TBS will exclusively televise all American League Postseason action. "You're so focused on those big guys - your 2-3-4-5 guys".

Charlie Blackmon, who had two of Colorado's four hits Monday, called it "an incredible opportunity".

Quintana has a 4-1 record with a 2.17 ERA in six starts against Milwaukee this season. The only other two hits were singles by Javier Baez and Daniel Murphy.

That increased workload didn't appear to have much of an adverse impact on the group, which also led the league with a 1.98 ERA in September, including a 1.72 mark over the final 26 games.
