Brewers NL Central Champions

The Milwaukee Brewers took their first NL Central title since 2011 by downing the Chicago Cubs 3-1 on Monday in a tiebreaker game.

Milwaukee won its eighth in a row and earned home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.

The Brewers will host the wild card winner starting Thursday in the best-of-five Division Series.

Chicago stays at Wrigley Field for Tuesday night's MLB wild-card game — the Cubs will play the loser of Monday's second tiebreaker between Colorado and the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West title.
