With AP Photos.The NL West and NL Central were on track for tiebreaker games when the Los Angeles Dodgers, Colorado Rockies, Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers all took leads in Game 162. Baez, who spent much of the season as the MVP favorite, said he's aware of what Yelich is doing but wasn't concerned about the race for the league's top individual honor and seemed more interested in winning the division. National League reliever of the month, Corey Knebel, recorded the win for the Brewers, and Josh Hader locked down the Cubs in the eighth and ninth innings to record the save.

"Everyone was yelling at me to get up there, so I went up there really quick and went right back down", he said.

The Brewers strung together four straight hits in a three-run fourth, capped by Kratz's two-run single.
We will see you Tuesday night. Quintana faced Milwaukee six times in 2018, allowing only nine earned runs in 37.1 innings (2.17 ERA) while striking out 33 and walking ten. And don't count out Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar, who has 35 home runs.
