On September 30, 2018 — All 15 Major League Baseball games are played simultaneously today as the season is scheduled to conclude, but the day begins with two division races still to be decided as the top two teams are tied in both the NL Central and the NL West. All four teams involved are winners, however, forcing an unprecedented two one-game playoffs tomorrow. Charlie Blackmon hits for the cycle as the Rockies pound the Nationals, 12 – 0, and the Dodgers crush the Giants, 15 – 0, setting up a meeting between the two teams at Dodger Stadium. In the NL Central, the Brewers also win big, 11 – 0 over the Tigers, and the Cubs complete the quartet with a 10 – 5 win over the Cardinals after coming back from an early deficit; those two teams will meet at Wrigley Field to decide who will post the best record in the NL, and who will be left to host the Wild Card Game against the loser of the other playoff.
