Brewers vs. Cubs: Tiebreaker Thread

Milwaukee Brewers (95-67) @ Chicago Cubs (95-67)

Jhoulys Chacin (15-8, 3.56) vs. Jose Quintana (13-11, 4.09)

Tiebreaker at Wrigley Field for the National League Central crown. Big payoff for coming out on top. Winner guaranteed home-field advantage throughout National League playoffs. Loser has to play in tomorrow's single-elimination wild-card game.

T1 — Symbolic play? Yelich hits high chopper toward SS. Javy fields it but can't quite throw Yelich out. Javy comes up short, which is what might happen in MVP race with Yelich.

T1 || Brewers 0, Cubs 0

By the way, Cubs won season series with Brewers 11-8. That's why this game is at Wrigley. This game does count as a regular-season game. Stats count, too (which is important for Yelich, who could potentially win Triple Crown with great performance today).

T3 — Yelich gives Brewers lead with 2-out single to CF. Scores Arcia, who led off with single. In previous AB, Baez saved run after fielding grounder that hit off 2B. Yelich comes through after that, though.

T8 — Wilson (who's been really shaky in tight, late-game situations this year) is in to start 8th. He gives up leadoff single to Arcia. Arcia has been spark plug for Brewers today.

Not sure how many times Wilson has to struggle in close games for Maddon to stop inserting him in these types of situations. It practically never works out.
