Dodgers and Brewers are the last division champions

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Milwaukee Brewers won the extra games against the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago Cubs and were crowned champions of the National League: West and Central divisions.

The Brewers relied on a day inspired by the Venezuelan Orlando Arcia and the timely batting of Christian Yelich, who was struggling to win the Triple Crown until the last minute, to defeat the Cubs with a score of 3-1.

Arcia achieved four hits in the same number of innings and scored twice, while Yelich was 3 out of 4 at bat and drove in a run to command the Milwaukee team's offense.

The Venezuelan Jhoulys Chacín opened from the mound. He accepted a hit and a run in 5.2 innings with two walks and three strikeouts, although the save was credited to Corey Knebel, in a perfect inning.

For the Cubs, Anthony Rizzo responded with his 25th homer of the season.

The Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 5-2 to thwart their attempt to get their first division title in the west of the old circuit and force them to travel to Chicago to face off at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs in the duel of the wild card.

The Californians relied on the power of Max Muncy and Cody Bellinger, who hit homers against starter Germán Márquez to produce four of the five runs. They also counted on the pitching of Walker Buehler, who only permitted the Rockies a hit during 6.2 innings.

Colorado reacted at the end of the game, with solo homers by Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story against closer Kenley Jansen, although they were not enough to get back in the game.
