After six months and more than a thousand games, the only thing the National League has decided so far is that the Braves were better than all those sub-.500 teams in the East.
Since the tiebreakers are considered game No. 163 of the regular season, all stats Monday will count, giving Yelich a chance to win the first NL Triple Crown since Joe Medwick in 1937.
So Monday, just after Noon, both teams will play an extra game at Wrigley Field in an attempt to settle a victor for the National League's Central Division.
The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers play today to determine the victor of the National League West, with the first pitch scheduled for 4:09 p.m. ET (1:09 p.m. PT). The team tweeted out a letter for fans to give their bosses so they can get out of work Monday afternoon for the game.
So that sets the stage for the two tiebreaker games Monday.
