Baseball fans are about to get extra baseball if the MLB scoreboard remains the same as Monday will feature a playoff tiebreaker doubleheader. Four of the National League playoff teams entered the final day of regular season play tied in the standings, and the Cubs, Brewers, Dodgers and Rockies are all on the verge of winning their games. An unlikely scenario is playing out as the NL West and NL Central will remain deadlocked at the end of today if the scores hold.
This means we are headed for a Monday doubleheader with two tiebreaker games. If both the NL West and NL Central remain tied, the Cubs will host the Brewers at 1:05 p.m. Eastern. The Dodgers will host the Rockies at 4:09 p.m. Eastern. Both games will be on ESPN.
Here’s a look at Monday’s schedule.
