The NL Division Series presented by Doosan will begin on Thursday with the NL Central Champion Milwaukee Brewers hosting the NL Wild Card Game victor at 5:07 p.m. (ET)/4:07 p.m. (CT) on FS1 from Miller Park.

Fielder closed out one of the most dominant offensive seasons in franchise history with a solid finishing kick, going 30-for-90 with 11 home runs to become the first Brewer ever to reach 50 in a season. Thanks to the Milwaukee Brewers winning their last seven games of the season, including a sweep over the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers, they'll face the Chicago Cubs in game 163. The right-hander recorded his first quality start in the majors on Tuesday, allowing one run on six hits in six innings against Minnesota.

Anthony Rizzo got off to a slow start before going on a tear.

The Milwaukee Brewers won the season series against the Colorado Rockies 5-2 including taking 3 of 4 in Colorado and 2 of 3 in Milwaukee. Yelich only trails in the RBIs column - he has 109 and Javier Baez of the Cubs leads with 111.

Charlie Blackmon, who had two of Colorado's four hits Monday, called it "an awesome opportunity".

Quintana pitched around six hits in five innings, twice stranding a baserunner in scoring position.

"I think he's equipped in so many ways to handle this, and perhaps most importantly, he's equipped with awesome stuff and the ability to dominate big league hitters because he's such a talented pitcher", manager Aaron Boone said. Games 4 and 5 would air on FS1.

Aguilar hit his 35th homer, connecting in the fourth off Spencer Turnbull (0-2).
