The Milwaukee Brewers won the NL Central division title in Game 163 of the season, and the Cubs are headed to the Wild Card game.
Fortunately, the Cubs will have home-field advantage and Jon Lester on the mound. The team loses out on some much needed rest after a gauntlet of games dating back to August.
The Cubs will learn their opponent later on Monday after the Rockies and Dodgers finish their NL West tie breaker. The winner of that game will play the Braves in the NLDS, the loser flies to Chicago to play the Cubs in the Wild Card.
The NL Wild Card game will air on ESPN, just like Game 163.
