CHICAGO (AP) — The Milwaukee Brewers have locked down the NL Central title and home-field advantage throughout the National League playoffs by scoring twice in the eighth inning of a 3-1 victory over the Cubs in Chicago. The game was tied 1-1 until Lorenzo Cain and Ryan Braun hit RBI singles. Christian Yelich was 3-for-4 with an RBI single, leaving him with a league-leading .326 average but falling one RBI and two home runs shy of winning the Triple Crown.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy belted two-run homers as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat Colorado, 5-2 to win their sixth consecutive NL West championship. Walker Buehler added an RBI single and limited the Rockies to one hit over 6 2/3 innings. The Dodgers will host the first two games of their NLDS against Atlanta, and the Rockies will travel to Chicago to take on the Cubs in Tuesday’s wild-card game.

NL Wild Card game: Colorado 2, Chicago Cubs 1, 13 innings

CHICAGO (AP) – Tony Wolters singled home the winning run in the 13th inning to give the Colorado Rockies a 2-1 win over the Chicago Cubs in the NL Wild-Card game at Wrigley Field. Nolan Arenado hit a sacrifice fly in the first to open the scoring before Kyle Freeland held the Cubs to four hits over 6 2/3 shutout innings. The win puts the Rockies in the NL Division Series against the Brewers, beginning tomorrow at Milwaukee.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota Twins will begin a managerial search following the dismissal of Paul Molitor after four seasons. Molitor was named the AL Manager of the Year after leading the club to the 2017 wild-card game, but the team finished a very distant second to the Cleveland Indians with a 78-84 mark this year. The Hall of Fame hitter was 305-343 after replacing longtime skipper Ron Gardenhire.

AL Wild Card game:  N.Y. Yankees 7, Oakland 2

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Yankees have advanced to the American League Division Series by beating the Oakland Athletics, 7-2 in the wild-card game. Aaron Judge put the Yanks ahead to stay with a two-run homer just two batters into the bottom of the first. Giancarlo Stanton also homered and Luke Voit hit a two-run triple in their postseason debuts.

BALTIMORE (AP) – Baltimore’s Buck Showalter is the latest major league manager to be let go since the season ended, one day after Paul Molitor was let go by Minnesota. Showalter took the Orioles to three playoff appearances during his eight-plus seasons with the team, but the Birds went 47-115 this year and finished 61 games behind the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox. The O’s also fired executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, who had been in the front office since November 2011.

CHICAGO (AP) – The Chicago Cubs are going to open the 2019 season without infielder Addison Russell after he accepted a 40-game suspension for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic abuse policy. Russell’s ban includes the 11 regular-season games he missed while on administrative leave, and he can return May 3 against the Cardinals unless the Cubs have a postponement before then. Russell batted .250 with five home runs and 38 RBIs in 130 games this year.

LE MARS — No. 10 Bishop Heelan used three field goals by Jesus Pena to take a 9-7 halftime lead and then pulled away after halftime to beat Le Mars 31-13 in a Class 3A District 1 match-up at Jim Lorenzen Field Friday night.  Jakob Bixenman scored on an 11-yard run on the Bulldogs’ second possession to put Le Mars in front early, 7-0.  Deonte Walker scored on a 21 yard run in the third quarter to put the Crusaders in front 16-7 going into the final quarter.  Brant Hogue threw fourth quarter touchdown passes to Walker and Drew Olson to put the game away.  Tate Westhoff fired a TD-pass to Ben Wadle in the fourth quarter for Le Mars to trim a 23-7 deficit to 23-13.  The loss was the third in a row for the Bulldogs to drop their district record to 0-and-3 and their season mark to 3-and-4.  Le Mars hosts Spencer next Friday in their home finale.

PAULLINA — Tristan Wilson ran for three touchdowns and a two-point conversion while rolling up 184 yards on 29 carries to lead South O’Brien to a 35-0 blitz of Gehlen Catholic Friday night in Class A District 1 play at Paullina.  Wilson scored on runs of three and 12 yards in the first half for a 13-0 halftime lead.  Wilson added a 16-yard TD-run on the Wolverines first possession of the second half and added his two-point conversion run for a 21-0 lead.  A fumble on Gehlen’s first possession after halftime led to a five yard run by Sean Negus and quarterback Jackson Louscher had a fourth quarter touchdown on a QB sneak to put the clock into continuous mode with 7:18 to play in the game.  All six possessions in the second half for South O’Brien began on Gehlen’s side of the 50.  It was the fifth time in seven games that Gehlen had been dealt a shutout.  The Jays were limited to just 69 yards and five first downs Friday night.  Gehlen slips to 1-and-6 for the season and 1-and-2 in district play.  The Wolverines have now won three straight to stay on top of the District 1 standings at 3-and-0 while improving to 4-and-3.  The Jays close out their road schedule next Friday at Hinton before their season finale in two weeks at home against Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn.
