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. Severino allowed three runs and got just one out in last year's wild-card game against Minnesota before NY rallied for an 8-4 victory.
The Milwaukee Brewers will be at the Chicago Cubs after the two tied for the National League Central title and the Colorado Rockies will travel to the Los Angeles Dodgers to decide the National League West championship. He is hitting.323 in his first season with Milwaukee, locking up the first batting title in Brewers' history.
Obviously, it won't be easy, but Yelich has a clear path to become the first NL Triple Crown victor since Joe Medwick of the Cardinals 81 years ago.
The Cubs took over sole possession of first place on August 1 and led the Brewers by as many as five games in early September, but Milwaukee closed the regular season on a tear. Freeland pitched against the Cubs' once in 2018, tossing 7 innings, allowing 3 runs and 6 hits as he struck out 5 in a losing effort. The best-of-seven National League Division Series will open on Thursday with the pairings to be determined.
The Brewers will open the five-game NL Division Series at home on Thursday against the victor of Tuesday's NL wild-card game between the Cubs (95-68) and the Rockies (92-71).

The Cubs beat Milwaukee 11-8 in the season series, but Milwaukee won four of the last six games. As for the validity of said note, well, I'm not making any guarantees.
"It's two of the best young starting pitchers in the big leagues pitching in this type of game", Rockies manager Bud Black said.
He extended his hitting streak to 10 games, going 2 for 3 and driving in three. The Rockies and Brewers each have exceptional bullpens as of late, so expect the team that's winning after 5 innings to go on and win that game. They did so in the third after two outs, on a double by Daniel Murphy, a triple by Ben Zobrist, a walk to Javy Baez and Rizzo's triple.
