National League playoff picture needs two tiebreaker games

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

That's all Milwaukee needed for a 3-1 victory over the Cubs, who collected just 3 hits on the afternoon, including a monster home run by Anthony Rizzo in the fifth inning.

The tiebreakers are considered game No. 163 of the regular season, meaning Yelich's stats - and those of Arenado and Baez - from Monday's game will count in the totals.

Walker Buehler was set to start for the Dodgers (91-71) as the defending NL champions try for a sixth straight West title. Manny Machado has 12 hits and is batting.300 over his past 10 games for Los Angeles.

Chris Taylor drew a walk from Andrew Suarez (7-13) to get the Dodgers going Sunday, Justin Turner followed with an RBI double and the rout was on.

The pending free agent has responded with seven hits in 21 at-bats this week, with two doubles and a home run. Manager Dave Roberts waved to hundreds of fans in the outfield bleachers.

JT Chargois and Julio Urias finished up with a hitless inning apiece, completing the Dodgers' 11th shutout of the season, their third against the Giants. The Dodgers offense was impressive in their 15-0 win over the Giants, scoring seven runs via timely hits here and there before finally hitting their first home run of the game. The lefty retired the first 10 batters in order before Joe Panik's single in the fourth. With six straight postseason's under the team's belt, the Los Angeles Dodgers now own the third-longest postseason streak in Major League Baseball history.

Cubs to host Brewers for NL Central tiebreaker game
At least Joe Maddon's team got a taste of the pressure on Sunday when they had to win to just get the shot on Monday. In the Central, the Brewers blanked the Detroit Tigers 11-0 for their 95th win of the season against 67 losses.

Daniel Sturridge Curling Equaliser Against Chelsea Has Twitter In Disbelief
Just days after their Carabao Cup encounter, Chelsea and Liverpool will once again do battle in the Premier League this evening.

Both Colorado and Los Angeles absolutely put on a show offensive against their respective opponents on Sunday.

Muncy's pinch-hit homer gave him 34 for the season and the drive splashed into McCovey Cove beyond the right-field arcade. Los Angeles has allowed just 1.7 runs per game in Buehler's starts this season.

The Dodgers out-hit the Giants 16-2.

If any of you would like a note to provide to your boss/teacher/parent so you can be excused from work/school/chores, please let me know and I'll be happy to provide it for you.

Evan Longoria and Brandon Crawford homered against Ryu in an earlier meeting this season at AT&T Park, a game the Giants won 6-4 in April.
